SFO Opens Yoga Room

Airports can be stressful. Soon you will have a place to relax at SFO.



    (Published Thursday, Jan. 26, 2012)

    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.
