“We’ve essentially created an urban oasis at the airport,” said Rosemarie Andolino, commissioner of the Chicago Department of Aviation.

A mirror covers one side of the bamboo-floored room, while a tinted window on the opposite end creates privacy and lets in natural light. A television on the wall plays calming music to peaceful scenes. Outside, near a sign that invites passers by to “find your inner peace at our yoga room,” a screen allows passengers to look up their flight information.

The room, open from 6 a.m to 10 p.m. daily, does not come with an instructor — just mats and disinfectant wipes. Travelers may use the space for free.
