For those with back pain, sitting for hours in an airplane seat can be excruciating. Esther Gokhale, author of 8 Steps to a Pain-Free Back (888-557-6788; egwellness.com), suggests the following adjustments.
• Put a cushion (or rolled-up sweater) against the lower part of the seat, to allow the back to maintain its natural curve.
• When you feel pressure on your lower back, hinge forward from the hips, put your head in your hands, and rest your elbows on the open tray.
• When you want to nap, instead of leaning back, lengthen your spine and rest your head against the seat in front of you, with a pillow as a cushion.

Colors of the Wind
To create the Air corner of The Elements event, Colorado destination management company DSC (970-476-6565; dsc-co.com) uplit freestanding white and silver fabric structures that quivered when a fan blew across them. Staff also hung colorful bird puppets among the "clouds." Light and fluffy desserts were brought out by "angels" -- servers wearing white. And guests enjoyed the outdoor oxygen bar.
In an event themed around The Elements, Colorado destination management company DSC (970-476-6565; dsc-co.com) created the Fire corner with lots of orange colors and real fire. Tables were covered in red velvet, and the flowers were birds of paradise and burnt-orange roses. Organizers lit candles of varying heights atop tables and the bar, and served red martinis, cinnamon liqueurs and flaming Dr. Peppers. In the cold drinks: ice cubes that blinked orange and red. The company also hired fire performers to entertain the group.
