Airport yoga has change into a development over the previous couple of years, with a rising variety of airports worldwide providing a devoted house for yoga. “It’s been amazing to see all of the yoga rooms popping up in airports around the world, and I think it’s a testament to a shift in focus on health and well-being, which can be a struggle to prioritize during busy lives and travel schedules,” Westlund says. “People want to feel well, but still might not make the time or the healthiest choices. Yoga is a reminder to breathe, and a pathway to feeling better and more comfortable in our bodies and minds even during chaotic times. Airport yoga rooms are an amazing first step; we are seeking to elevate that experience even further, and for a broader audience, by incorporating privacy, careful instruction, and brief, targeted classes, so that it’s less intimidating than going it alone in a communal yoga room.”
