If you travel often, you know that staying fit can be a challenge. From excursions to conference calls to late nights and more, it can be tough to stay on track with your workouts. Enter a new company that’s launching yoga studios in airports: Yoga on the Fly.
Yoga on the Fly is working to make airports healthier, and their first studio will open in Denver International Airport on November 6th. Instead of the usual instructors or classes, it will offer instructional videos on iPads. Travelers will be able to choose videos that range in length from 8-20 minutes and complete their workouts via a private mini studio room.
While this isn’t the first yoga has been introduced to airports, Yoga on the Fly focuses on assistance and guidance. The company was founded by two yoga instructors, Elizabeth Feinstone and Avery Westlund, who met in Nicaragua at a retreat. After discovering their love for travel but a concern for its negative effects, they thought up Yoga on the Fly as a way for travelers to clear their minds and prepare for their vacation or business trip.
According to Forbes, “the programs include a variety of yoga, meditation, breathwork and guided movement practices to offer an escape from the stress of travel and address specific issues airline travelers may face, such as muscle aches, circulation problems and anxiety.”
Both headphones and rubber mats will be provided and sessions will cost $15-$60 depending on the length of time you’d like your workout to last. It will be open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through Friday and 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday, so no matter what time your flight, you’ll have the opportunity to help yourself stay in shape.
