Who knew airport yoga rooms in the USA are even happening when most of us can’t even find a decent meal before a flight? Turns out, there are several airport yoga rooms at US airports.
And just like finding decent food, you’ll want to find decent airport yoga rooms too.
Airports are stressful. Just like the heavy Los Angeles traffic, they can make us want to scream (and that would be really bad on a flight).
Even though you can’t fully 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. See? Not limited to airport yoga rooms! For some inspiration here is five airport yoga poses you can do anywhere.
