Joe McFarland passed along this article about a newly opened yoga room at the San Francisco airport. Sounds like a great place to recover from the stress of travel these days!
Airport officials believe the 150-square-foot (14-square-meter) room with mirrored walls is the world’s first airport yoga studio, said spokesman Mike McCarron.
The room, open to all ticketed passengers, contains a few chairs and yoga mats but no instructors or televisions. No shoes, food, drinks or cell phones are allowed.
That is awesome! I have had that idea for several years after being stuck in airports and doing standing poses in out of the way places. Thanks for sharing, Joe, and posting, Angie.

The creep is obviously in it for profit. Suckers, of course are cooperating. Remember pet rocks?
Joe, it shocking to see stuff like this pop up, but really not surprising given the focus and values of our mainstream culture. I hope to do what I can to teach yoga from a more traditional, authentic perspective, even though I am from and I and live in this culture. It is a joy to share a yoga practice with like minded people!
