Find your zen, air travelers: Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport now has a yoga room.
The Chicago Department of Aviation announced Tuesday that the airport yoga room is open on the mezzanine level of the Terminal 3 rotunda at O’Hare. The department also plans to open a yoga room at the city’s Midway International Airport in the near future.
Aviation commissioner Rosemarie Andolino calls the yoga room an “oasis for passengers.”
The 15-foot by 16-foot room has sustainable bamboo wood flooring, a wall of floor-to-ceiling mirrors and exercise mats. One side of the room has frosted windows to let in natural light. There is a video monitor to play yoga techniques or nature images and audio plays soothing sounds.
The room is open daily from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.
