Teachers in the Terminal: FREE Airport Yoga Classes in JFK- JetBlue

yoga at the airport

Yoga in airports isn’t a new phenomenon for wanderlusting yogis seeking a little inner peace amidst the chaos that is the airport scene these days. Spaces for practice and/or meditation are popping up worldwide, and we couldn’t be more thrilled with the trend. For us? Just further proof of the exponential growth of yoga and the impact that is has on practioners. They want their fix like they want a cup of coffee between flights! But this is something new. An actual class in the airport for passengers? Say what?

Straight form the horse’s mouth, Ava Taylor, at Yama Talent:

One of a kind pilot program offering world class yoga when you need it most.  Allowing travelers to make the most out of idle hours at the airport and to fly with ultimate peace of mind.  Situated in the recently renovated T5 at JFK, this innovative yoga program will cater to those traveling on the Monday to Friday long haul JFK to LAX flights. Each 60 min class is taught by a distinguished instructor curated by top NYC based yoga agency YAMA Talent.  A collaboration with fellow entrepreneur at JFK – Bar Veloce, this is the pinnacle of convenience for the wellness minded jet set.

+Trial program runs 1/20/2016 through 1/22/2016 and is located in the main concourse of

Jet Blue T5 during the winter and the outdoor terrace and wooftop when weather permits.

And in USA Today:

Passengers who need to stretch and bend will now find yoga studios tucked into corners of a handful of airports around the country, but this week JetBlue brings the yoga discipline front and center with a series of free classes in Terminal 5 at John F. Kennedy International Airport.
