Airport Yoga Rooms: Where to Find Them in North America

Who knew airport yoga rooms in the USA are even happening when most of us can’t also find a decent meal before a flight? It turns out; there are several airport yoga rooms at US airports.

And just like finding decent food, you’ll want to see suitable airport yoga rooms too.

Airports are stressful. Just like the massive Los Angeles traffic, they can make us want to scream (and that would be bad on a flight).

Even though you can’t entirely escape the chaos of the terminal, you can escape to one of the many airport yoga rooms.

However, it’s not just limited to airport yoga rooms. We’ve seen people busting a move right there at the gate!

There is plenty of Instagram evidence to show that yogis have taken to finding open spots to practice. For some inspiration, here is five airport yoga poses you can do anywhere.

If you don’t want all eyes on you in downward dog, head over to one of the airport yoga rooms to Zen out.
