Three Airports Now Sport Yoga Rooms

At this point we’ve seen pretty much anything that usually does its thing outside of the airport move to inside the airport. One of these new additions to the concourses and terminals is the appearance of yoga rooms.

We’re pretty sure that San Francisco International Airport started the airport yoga movement just about a year ago, as the lotus position found its way just past the security checkpoint at the airport’s Terminal 2. A year later there’s other airports getting in on the fun as well, and this week it looks like Burlington, Vermont is joining in.

Burlington International Airport is the latest airport to add yoga room to their list of amenities. A bamboo floor and plenty of yoga mats transform the space from just another room at the airport into a little bit of a sanctuary for stressed out travelers looking to unwind before or after their flights.

The locals at Evolution Yoga have even stopped by the airport to offer a free class to celebrate the opening of the new space, and we’d like to imagine that they’d be back again to stretch out the traveling public before too long. Up at BTV the yoga room is on the second floor on the west side of the airport, and a little sign alerts you that peace and relaxation is just around the corner.

Besides the offerings at BTV and SFO there’s at least one more yoga space at the airport. Down in Texas, it’s Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport encouraging flyers to try out a sun salute between flights. Their yoga room is more of a space within the terminal rather than its own room; however, we’re not going to complain. Check it out over in Terminal D right around Gate D40—namaste.
