Yoga Room in SFO? Yes, please!!

January 30, 2012

Yet another reason to love San Francisco. Not only do they have delicious food, great shopping, incredible culture, stunning scenery, and an enviable proximity to Napa Valley, they now have a new feature in their airport I hope will spread across the country: a yoga room. That’s right, in SFO Terminal 2, there is now a dedicated yoga and meditation room. From FlySFO:

“When we began to remodel Terminal 2, one of our goals was not just to bring the glamour back to air travel, but to also make the entire experience less stressful and more enjoyable,” said Airport Director John L. Martin. “With the opening of the Yoga Room, SFO has taken another giant leap forward in providing our travelers the opportunity and space to relax and decompress on their own terms.”

It’s inside security, and free to use for all ticketed passengers. They ask that you remove your shoes, turn off your cell phone, and be silent as you practice or meditate. Mats are even provided! Yogis are led to the room by the icon shown above, of someone in lotus. I can’t wait to check this out next time I’m in the Bay Area. This story from Bay Area NBC has even more info, and pictures of the new yoga room.

    It is a great room, across from AC lounge, have used it twice in the morning when no one was using.
    It made you feel so relax and fresh afterword.

    I totally thought of you when I heard this on NPR this week! Awesome concept…I just hope they have things to sanitize the mats so it’s not a germ fest.
