As many passengers pledge New Year resolutions to remain fit and healthy, Qatar Airways is taking steps to help them meet their goals with the introduction of a new onboard yoga guide and tips on how to stay relaxed and rejuvenated in flight.
Especially customised for long-haul fliers, the new four-page “Fly Healthy, Fly Fit” guide has been prepared by Qatar Airways in association with “The Chopra Center for Wellbeing”.
Deepak Chopra’s holistic approach fuses modern medical knowledge with the ancient science of Ayurveda and the art of yoga.
It provides passengers with easy exercise routines, enabling them to feel more balanced and relaxed during long flights.
Interesting, and innovative for QR. More importantly, it can save lives as the movement can prevent fatal blood clots occurring in passengers, especially those on long haul flights (or if longer than two hours)....something for other airlines to consider.

I think that in this day an age it would be surprising to fund a carrier that didn't offer or highlight some form of relaxation and movement exercises in an effort to prevent DVT (and any subsequent lawsuits it can bring on the airlines). Perhaps QR simply went further with the branding to call it in-flight yoga, and the guide apears largers than others as it is in both arabic and english....
