(Nearly) Everyone Loves Random Acts of Airport Yoga

With the San Francisco Airport’s new Yoga Room splashing into the news this week, we take the opportunity to highlight random acts of yoga occurring in airports across the world. Clearly, airports and spontaneous yoga demonstrations were made for each other.
First off, here’s kirtan chantress extraordinaire, Ragani, and her band members making good use of their time in the Charlotte airport on the way home from a trip…

Next, a group of traveling yoginis, clearly inspired by Ragani’s amazing balancing act, attempt a world record for most yoginis striking a pose on an automatic walkway at the same time…I think they win…

A few tips on how to turn a delayed flight into the next great opportunity to impress your fellow travelers with a perfectly executed handstand…

Here we have handstand splits (2:30 into the clip)…glad no one got hurt…need I say more…

Have a “sore bum” from the long flight? Give these stretches a try…

I wonder if you have to get a permit for a synchronized yoga demonstration like this…

Finally, the last few clips are from folks who might be just as happy as the rest of the yoga world if the Yoga Room concept really takes off in airports…

5 Ways Yoga Can Help You Fall in Love with Your Body

When I first started doing yoga, I really didn’t like my body very much. I rarely had any positive thoughts about it. Mostly when I thought about my body I felt frustrated, or ashamed. These sound like big things to feel but in my experience talking and working with women these are some of the […]

Sacred Sound: Mantras & Chants

Many years ago when I started a yoga practice, I had no idea what it would reveal to me. I was just hoping for a little extra strength and flexibility, and I did what I could to avoid all the spiritual trappings of the practice. But, somehow, as it does, the yoga did its job. […]

Crowdfunding Meditation Across the World: See & Do Together Could Use a Little Spare Change

NamaSTAY Yoga Towel Review and Giveaway!

I know when I practice yoga, whether hot or otherwise, I’m usually a sweaty disaster. It’s a good disaster, but sweaty nonetheless. Since slip-and-slide yoga mat syndrome is totally uncool, over the years I’ve added a variety of yoga towels to my collection to help with soaking up sweat, providing a solid practice surface, and […]

A.U.M…(Almighty Universal Magnetic)…by MC Yogi…definitely going on repeat

Time to turn up the volume! MC Yogi just released a sweet new music video that has me pumped about his new album, Mantras, Beats & Meditations, set to release on April 1. His videos always have great visuals, but A.U.M. may be my new favorite. It’s tough to beat the combination of great lyrics, thumping […]

  1. Been there, done the airport yoga. Though I would never have been so bold as to do a hand stand. I might be more daring next time.

  2. I can’t say I’ve seen any random acts in the airport, yet. I think every airport should carry a yoga room, though. They have chapels in most. Time for Yoga rooms1
