Long lines, flight delays, and the anticipation of spending hours at 30,000 feet make many travelers tense. But if you’ve got time to kill at SFO, you can let it all go. In January 2012, the airport opened a yoga room in terminal two. The 150-square-foot space is dimly lit with mirrored and blue-hued walls, and is free to ticketed passengers once they pass through security.

Visitors are advised to remove their shoes and leave all food, drinks, and mobile phones outside the room to keep the zone as peaceful as possible.
