SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. - Travelers don't equate the hustle and bustle of airports with yoga, but now some airports are adding tranquil spaces where practitioners can stretch, meditate, and get away from it all.
It's the latest effort to humanize and de-stress the unpleasantness of air travel: yoga rooms at airports. Burlington, Vt., is the latest of a handful of airports to add the amenity.
"We find that traveling can be stressful so we try to take a little bit of that out," said Eugene Richards, interim director of Burlington International Airport.
Travelers have found sanctuary in the small but light and airy space with its moss-green walls, bamboo floor, and yoga mats, while waiting for flights or when stranded.
