Elizabeth Feinstone, COO & Avery Westlund, CEO
Elizabeth and Avery met while teaching yoga on a retreat in Nicaragua, and quickly discovered that while they both loved to travel, they emphatically did not love the adverse effects of air travel on body and mind. The two began to consider how yoga can be used to not only recuperate from travel but to preempt and prevent the physical and mental discomforts of flight before takeoff. Exploring the endless benefits of yoga for weary travelers, they realized there is an opportunity to revolutionize health and wellness en route by offering guided yoga, meditation and breathwork in serene, private studios at airports around the world. And just like that, Yoga on the Fly® was born!
With over a decade of teaching yoga and entrepreneurship between them, Elizabeth and Avery will bring Yoga on the Fly® to market Fall 2017 as Your Ticket to Traveling Well™.
EXCLUSIVE: AMERICA'S FIRST AIRPORT PRIVATE YOGA STUDIO IS OPENING IN DENVER THIS FALL
Picture this: You’re on your second or third leg of some crazy flight schedule, but instead of killing time reading another magazine or sitting in a chair watching the news on a loop, you can pop into a serene studio to do however much yoga or meditation your layover length permits. Sound dreamy? Well, soon it’ll be a real option for travelers when Yoga on the Fly, the country’s first private yoga-and-meditation studio in an airport, opens on November 6 at Denver International Airport (DIA) in Colorado.

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.
Out There: Yoga on the Fly to Open First Airport Studio
"People want to feel well, but still might not make the time or the healthiest choices. Yoga is a reminder to breathe, and a pathway to feeling better and more comfortable in our bodies and minds even during chaotic times. Airport yoga rooms are an amazing first step; we are seeking to elevate that experience even further, and for a broader audience, by incorporating privacy, careful instruction, and brief, targeted classes, so that it's less intimidating than going it alone in a communal yoga room."
Where to Get Healthier in 2018
Hotels, cruises, airports and tour operators are making wellness a priority.
Avery Westlund, the company’s co-founder and a certified yoga instructor, said she came up with the idea for Yoga on the Fly because her frequent travels left her physically and emotionally exhausted. “Travel can be a grind, and yoga and meditation are simple and efficient ways to alleviate the stress,” she said. The company expects to open locations at two more airports in the United States by early 2018.
New Airport Guided Yoga Studios Help Travelers Stay Fit On The Road.
Fitness and wellness options for travelers keep getting better, and now a new company is introducing yet another way to make better, healthier use of airport stays by offering private yoga studios.
A Private Yoga Studio is Opening at DIA
Feinstone and Westlund used both their yoga expertise and their education—Feinstone has a bachelor’s degree in exercise science and a master’s in public health while Westlund has a master’s in forensic psychology—to create sessions that would explicitly address travel-related aches and pains, poor circulation, and anxiety.
De-Stress During Holiday Travel at Denver Airport’s Yoga on the Fly
"Showers and gyms have come to some of the privileged private lounges. So now, instead of killing time during a layover by reading a magazine, watching YouTube videos or eating whatever catches your jet-lagged eyes, you can use that time for some personal, private mental and physical restoration to unwind and de-stress."

Everything You Wanted to Know About Airport Yoga (but Were Afraid to Ask)
Maybe it’s due to stressful, ever-changing TSA regulations or cramp-inducing airplane seats, but a growing number of airports worldwide have begun to offer dedicated practice spaces for traveling yogis. It’s far better than trying to find a quiet corner on the concourse for your downward dog.
Most dedicated spaces are very basic, but because of the increase in interest, airports are testing other options to get a sense of customer need. Recently, Yoga on the Fly—the first guided, private airport yoga and meditation experience—launched in Denver. While the offering was popular with travelers, a temporary lease means that the space will close at the end of March. Cofounders Elizabeth Feinstone and Avery Westlund already have future locations in the works.
Wellness Travel: Yoga on the Fly
Any regular traveler knows how stressful traveling can be. But Yoga on the Fly, a new private airport yoga concept, is trying to give passengers and travel employees a little escape.
A YOGA STUDIO WILL OPEN INSIDE A DIA TERMINAL THIS FALL
While other international airports offer communal airport yoga rooms, Yoga on the Fly is the first private airport studio with guided instruction via an iPad and SoundOff headphones.
“We are thrilled to be introducing the world’s first-ever guided, private yoga and meditation experience within airports,” said Elizabeth Feinstone, co-founder ofYoga on the Fly. “Our goal is to elevate the passenger and staff experience, offering an accessible respite from the chaos of travel.”
