Rising Warrior: 6 Airport Yoga Rooms - United Hub

Rising warrior: 6 airport yoga rooms

By The Hub team, September 09, 2016

Yogis rejoice — just when you thought there was no escape from the hectic nature of your travel life, now you finally have a place to take a deep breath and get your zen on. Not every airport is offering airport yoga rooms or studios just yet, but you might be surprised to know which ones do. Almost all of the facilities are free and offer any equipment you may need in order to practice yoga. If you're traveling, yoga rooms can provide a much-needed calming environment and help you reinvigorate and prepare for a long flight. Regardless of why you may need some yoga time, check out these airports offering dedicated yoga spaces.

San Francisco International Airport, California

There are two yoga rooms located at the San Francisco International Airport, one located in Terminal 2 and another in Terminal 3, and both are open 24 hours. The rooms are narrow, with wood floors and floor to ceiling mirrors, and yoga mats are available for travelers to use. If you happen to be using the yoga room in Terminal 3, pick up a post-yoga treat at Fraîche, an organic fresh yogurt and frozen yogurt shop about 10 gates away from the yoga room.

Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, Texas

Located near gate D40 in the hallway connecting Terminals B and D, and near gate E31, Dallas/Fort Worth's Yoga Studios provide free mats to use and have an instructional video playing on a loop for those who might need some tips on poses. If it's early morning, or you just love breakfast foods, check out Cereality, a breakfast bar that celebrates the first meal of the day and has great cold cereal and oatmeal options.

London Heathrow Airport, England

Available in a pay-for-use lounge at Terminal 4 in London Heathrow, this studio started as a pop-up that prompted such a great response it became permanent. With paid entry, guests also have access to an oxygen bar and wellness center. The studio has yoga mats and exercise videos available for use as well.

Frankfurt Airport, Germany

Just this year, Frankfurt Airport opened two new yoga rooms, one in Terminal 1 and the second in Terminal 2. Everything is free to use, including mats, blocks, cushions and pads. The room is dimly lit and has floor-to-ceiling mirrors, as well as a massive Buddha portrait, which adds to the chilled-out environment inside.

Chicago O'Hare International Airport, Illinois

The yoga room at Chicago O'Hare is located in Terminal 3 and has bamboo flooring, a mirrored wall and a video on an endless loop in case you need a reminder for which pose to do next. Yoga mats are provided, and peaceful, relaxing sounds come through the speakers. Additionally, disinfecting wipes are provided to help ensure the mats are properly cleaned before and after each use.

Burlington International Airport, Vermont

The best thing about the yoga room at Burlington Airport is that Evolution Yoga, a local studio, designed it. Who better than a yogi to know what's best for another yogi? From picking out the mats and meditation pillows to selecting paint colors for the walls, this place was well thought out. Additionally, there is a family restroom located across from the studio, which has a shower in it, in case you need to rinse off afterward.
