Yoga Room Opens at SFO

Yoga Before You Fly at SFO

San Francisco International Airport (SFO) has opened a yoga room, which it claims is the first in the world*.

This is a brilliant idea, as anyone who has flown coach-class will tell you. Personally, I always get funny looks when I use the departure-lounge floor as a carpeted stretching mat, so the idea of a dedicated yoga room makes me smile.

Hopefully they have a strict regimen for cleaning the free mats.

The best part: the infographic for “Yoga Room”, depicting a serene figure (dare I say Buddha-like?) in the lotus position.

(*I have a tough time believing that SFO invented yoga rooms, considering how Singapore’s mega-airport featured a cinema, serenity garden, and free internet-enabled computers back in 2003: surely one of the massive Asian airports has a yoga room already?)
