Vancouver loves its yoga, so it has always been pretty surprising that there isn’t already a YYoga studio at the YVR Airport. Flying can be an anxious and somewhat uncomfortable experience (especially when you’re sitting for more than 4 hours!) so getting a little bit of stretching or meditation in before a flight can be very valuable.

This summer, YVR will be trying out a new dedicated yoga room as part of the Take-off Fridays Festival, the airport’s popular summer event series that features music, entertainment, and family-friendly activities in the terminal. The yoga room will be open each Friday until August 26 from 10am – 2pm.
