Downward Dog During Delays at O'Hare Airport's New Yoga Room

December 17, 2013 at 10:27 AM | by | ()

Believe it or not there’s no better place to relax than the airport, and that’s especially the case as more and more places are adding a little yoga to the terminal and concourse menu. We’ve mentioned a few of the airports where you can practice your warrior or cobra poses, and now’s there’s one more airport that’s all about stretching it out during your layover.

Chicago-O’Hare is famous for a lot of things, and you can now add yoga to that list. The place now has a yoga room right within Terminal 3, and it’s situated right next door to the airport’s indoor garden. The yoga studio features bamboo floors, mirrors along one side of the room, plenty of yoga mats, and a spot to store your stuff while you are doing your thing. There are even frosted windows within the room to let in a little more light, and to kind of create a less sterile environment.

Three Airports Now Sport Yoga Rooms

January 31, 2013 at 10:21 AM | by | ()

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.

Hong Kong's Airport Hates Layovers Too, So They Installed Free Playstation 3

Where: Hong Kong - Chek Lap Kok Airport, Hong Kong, Hong Kong
February 4, 2010 at 5:00 PM | by | ()

Bored at the airport and jealous that Upper Class flyers on Virgin Atlantic have Guitar Hero and Wii Sports to play with in their Gatwick Clubhouse? Well, if you're suffering from a layover at Hong Kong's massive and very modern Chek Lap Kok Airport, then perhaps you'll be interested in a few games on a Playstation 3?

Hong Kong's airport authority has called up Sony to partner on a deal to bring Playstation 3 into HKG, and they've installed 14 PlayStation3 Game Poles near the boarding gates at Terminal 1 and the Coach Station at Terminal 2. Here we'd ask how much does it cost, but we don't even need to—because it's free!.

And of course, Sony wants to get the travelers hooked, so you'll be able to play some of the newest titles including Final Fantasy XIII (which isn't even released in the US yet!), James Cameron’s Avatar: The Game, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and Assassin’s Creed 2. We'd recommend Assassin's Creed 2, because the setting is medieval Italy and boy is it a game that's perfect to be sucked into for a few mindless hours in the airport.
