SFO opens yoga room in Terminal 2

Travelers going through San Francisco International Airport's Terminal Two have a new way to relax before their flights.

What may be the first airport yoga studio ever has opened there. The dimly lit, silent room — a former storage closet — was officially inaugurated on Thursday.

It is located after the security checkpoint and available to all fliers. The room comes with chairs and yoga mats, but no televisions or instructors. Shoes and the use of cell phones and other electronic devices are prohibited. Silence is encouraged.

Airport Director John Martin said the idea came from a visitor to the terminal. The room cost between $15,000 and $20,000 to build.

It is marked by a black and white sign with a Buddha-looking pictogram on it.
