This could be the ultimate challenge for you Yogis. At an airport do you really want to let your guard all the way down? Yoga, is about letting go, detaching from the world around you and being present in the moment. If I walked out of a yoga class at the airport, I would totally lose my luggage and be too Zened out to make my connecting flights in time. LOVE the idea though. VIDEO
Here’s an “only in San Francisco” story for you. The San Francisco International Airport is set to open a “Zen Room” for travelers who want to do a little yoga before catching a flight out of town.
Airport Director John Martin officially opens the facility inside Terminal 2 Thursday.
It will be available to ticketed passengers who feel the need to meditate, stretch, or do whatever else one might do to get Zen-like before a flight.
If you are looking for a little downward dog before you catch a plane out of town, the room is in Terminal 2 past security next to the “recompose area.” It is marked “Yoga Room” and has a big glass door.
And believe it or not, the room is open to all for free. There is no charge to use the Zen Room.
Of course, you don’t need a special facility to do yoga. All you need is a little space and a mat.
But if you’d like to do it in private, or in the company of other yoga lovers, you now have that option at SFO.
To assist travelers in f inding the room, signs have been place throughout the airport showing a person in the Lotus position.
