Hindus have welcomed Columbia Metropolitan Airport (CAE) in West Columbia for hosting free yoga classes, calling it “a step in the positive direction”.
Commending CAE for free yoga classes, Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada Monday, urged CAE to make yoga sessions a regular feature and create permanent yoga-space available free during all airport hours if it was serious about becoming a world-class airport that enhances the passenger experience and helped reduce their stress levels.
Yoga, referred as “a living fossil”, was a mental and physical discipline, for everybody to share and benefit from, whose traces went back to around 2,000 BCE to Indus Valley civilization; Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, noted.
CAE, whose tagline is “Fly with ease”, serves Columbia and The Midlands of South Carolina with 10 nonstop destinations and over 60 daily flights and handled 1.2 million passengers in 2018.
