Yoga on the Fly, a concept offering passengers the ability to practice yoga, meditation and breathwork while traveling, is getting ready to open its first-ever location. Its first studio will open at Denver International (DEN) on Nov. 6.
The 800-square-foot location will house five private mini studios. Upon entering the location, passengers will consult with a wellness advisor about their yoga experience, and the advisor will help them select the best class for them. Then, travelers will be shown to their own private yoga space, equipped with a yoga mat, a wireless headset and an iPad. All the yoga classes, which are played on the iPads, are 8-20 minutes long.
Founders Elizabeth Feinstone and Avery Westlund say the concept is about “creating an escape for people.” Both have a long history with practicing yoga and met while teaching yoga in Nicaragua together. They enjoyed traveling, but they didn’t like how their bodies felt once they reached their destination. Yoga on the Fly is their answer to helping people feel better while traveling.
All of the video yoga classes were created and produced by Feinstone and Westlund. “It was really important to us in establishing the quality to have produced it all ourselves,” says Feinstone.
In addition to the classes, Yoga on the Fly will have a retail section for wellness branded, such as MPG Sport, Blooming Lotus Jewelry, Manduka, Zaq, S’well and Go Dash Dot.
The concept will begin with a 90-day residency for the holiday season at DEN. It will be open Sunday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturdays from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Pricing ranges from $15 to $60, depending on the desired studio time.
