When a passenger suggested they add a yoga room to the San Francisco airport waiting area, management converted a large storage room into what they say is the first airport yoga room. As of last week, male and female travelers of all ages are taking off their shoes and unrolling their mats in the blue 10 by 15 foot room to stretch out and turn inward between flights.

The airport also installed a newly designed “universal” pictogram to represent yoga to travelers of all nationalities passing through airports around the world.
