Yoga in the News: A Yoga Room at the SFO Airport! January 27, 2012

Filed under: Miscellaneous,yoga — R. H. Ward @ 11:05 am

Now this is exciting: SFO unveils world’s first (?) dedicated yoga room within an airport. I think it’s a fantastic idea. On airplanes we get crammed into these tiny seats and aren’t allowed to get up and move around or even stretch our legs. In airports we can sit for hours waiting for a late flight. A little yoga before or after a flight or during a layover would be a great way to stretch out and feel better. I’m excited for the next time I fly into SFO so I can check this out!

    That’s awesome! I always try to get in some good stretches before a flight. Last time I headed out of here I was doing some pre-flight stretches in a quiet spot near the gate when a guy came over and joined me. He said he never would have thought of it if he hadn’t seen me doing it.

      But I bet that guy stretches before more flights now that he’s thought of it! I think more people try to stretch before a flight than is commonly known. I’m psyched SFO is starting a new trend with this!

    Now we need to be able to practice a bit in flight! If the crew can do Bollywood numbers, why can’t the yogis bust out a down dog or two? Whoa, wait! Airline in-flight yoga teachers? You just got your cert, Rox, what do you think? It kind of feels inevitable, doesn’t it. Pranayama during turbulence to de-stress everyone? And there should be an FAA reg that if you’re stuck on the tarmac for more than 30 minutes – free yoga! You know, I started off being silly, but the more I think about it…

    • R. H. Ward Says:

      You know, it’d be hard to work up a routine that’d be possible in an airline seat and also helpful, but it could be done. There’s lots of chair yoga out there… And pranayama during turbulence, takeoff, and landing is possibly the best travel idea I’ve ever heard. 🙂
