World’s First Airport Yoga Room Opens at San Francisco International Airport

SFO Opens First of Its Kind “Yoga Room” in T2. Post-Security Facility Will Allow Passengers to Relax and Reflect. Officials from San Francisco International Airport announced today the opening of the first of its kind Yoga Room in the Airport’s recently refurbished Terminal 2. The room, located just past the security checkpoint and adjacent to the Recompose Area, affords visitors the opportunity to easily step into a space devoted to contemplation and self-reflection. “When we began to remodel Terminal 2, one of our goals was not just to bring the glamour back to air travel, but to also make the entire experience less stressful and more enjoyable,” said Airport Director John L. Martin. “With the opening of the Yoga Room, SFO has taken another giant leap forward in providing our travelers the opportunity and space to relax and decompress on their own terms.” Drawing inspiration from contemporary color and light artists, the

architects of Terminal 2, Gensler, designed a room enveloped in a calming blue color. A floating wall symbolizes a buoyant spirit and enlightened mind. Large, felt-constructed rocks (to be installed later this Spring) will be arranged throughout in a nod to the Zen garden spaces of the Japanese tradition. Light levels are set low and warm in juxtaposition to the bright, light filled concourse. Gensler Design Director Melissa Mizell explains, “Throughout the terminal, Gensler’s design aims to elevate the passenger experience. The Yoga Room gives modern travelers a space that fosters and supports quiet and reflection.  Those aren’t emotions that people typically encounter at the airport.” To assist travelers, the Airport placed on all directional signs that indicate the location of the Yoga Room using a unique pictogram of a stylized image of a person in the Lotus position.
