While flying around the world in a solar plane, Si2 Pilot Andre Borschberg relates, “Though the cockpit is not big enough, I still do yoga and meditation to keep fit, aware and awake.” Then, taking off once again in the Solar Impulse 2 (Si2), Andre Borschberg piloted the innovative solar plane on the next stage of its historic Round the World (#RTW) fuel-free journey. Departing Ahmedabad, India, on Wednesday, March 18, the relatively short flight to India took 13 hours.
Although the stopover in Varanasi was very short, this famous Hindu city holds special importance in the lives of the yoga-practicioning pilots, Solar Impulse CEO Andre Borschberg, and Solar Impulse President Bertrand Piccard.
“Yoga and Meditation Gives Us Balance”
Speaking to The Hindu shortly after arrival, Mr. Borschberg related, “I was introduced to yoga and meditation 20 years ago when I visited Rishikesh [in Uttarakhand] with my wife … Yoga and meditation is what helps me going when I am alone in the cockpit flying non-stop for days and hours.”
“Yoga and meditation gives us balance and keeps us in the right state of mind, which is very crucial when you are on such a difficult mission,” says Si2 Pilot Borschberg. Continuing, he explained, “While flying alone, we have to stay awake for days and hours … The challenge is to maintain the right mental attitude and keep thinking right and be ourselves, and yoga helps me in that. Though the cockpit is not big enough, I still do yoga and meditation to keep fit, aware and awake.”
Both Andre Borschberg and co-pilot Bertrand Piccard rely on the spiritual practices of yoga, meditation, and breathing exercises, or pranayam to support their physically challenging endeavor to circumnavigate the earth in the tight confines of a single-seater solar airplane. According to Huffington Post, the two have been practising yoga under the guidance of Indian yoga guru Sanjeev Bhanot for the past 12 years.
