Citroen teamed up with internationally renowned yoga teacher, Michael James Wong, to launch Citroen ‘Car Yoga’, which features five unique ‘Car Yoga’ poses.
Inspired by Citroen’s C3 and Advanced Comfort programme, both of which promote relaxed and stress-free driving, each pose has been designed to enhance the well-being of yoga-practising drivers and passengers alike. With ‘Car Yoga’, they can unwind and re-energise before driving, during rest periods and at their final destination.
Inspired by the new C3 supermini’s focus on occupant comfort, the ‘Car Yoga’ poses encourage drivers to switch off their engines and find their inner calm with in-car meditation techniques utilising some of the features on-board.
‘Car Yoga’ will help ensure a relaxing drive behind the wheel – whether that’s with the “Hands Up, Back and Forward” move to warm up and engage the shoulders, or the “6 Point Turn” yoga pose to loosen the spine ready to drive.
Drivers and passengers wishing to stretch their legs can open their car door and loosen tight hamstrings with “The Ham Sandwich”, while resting against the soft Airbump panels on the sides of the C3. Alternatively, there’s “The Rest Stop” pose, which will help to re-energise the body after a long period of driving, or after being stuck in traffic which can heighten stress levels.
During rest breaks, or upon reaching the final destination, there’s also the “Driver Warrior” pose. Standing with both legs firmly grounded, you need to place your hands on the boot sill before extending each leg behind in turn. This yoga pose will relax your legs after a long drive.
