Long hours of flying can wreak havoc on one’s stress levels and sleep pattern, so it’s no wonder frequent travelers often appreciate a quick rest at the lounge. Now, visitors to Cathay Pacific’s The Pier business class lounge at Hong Kong International Airport will also be able to enjoy a yoga or meditation class.

The Sanctuary is a newly opened space within the lounge that’s dedicated to helping travelers relax and rejuvenate before their flight. Developed in partnership with The Pure Group, which runs multiple gyms and yoga studios across Hong Kong, the 65-square-meter space is home to yoga studio The Body Sanctuary and meditation studio Mind Sanctuary.

Travelers can choose to practice on their own in private corners or join a class led by instructors in a guided video. Chairs and stretching instructions are also available for those who’d like a more passive stretch.

Meanwhile, The Mind Sanctuary offers both “audio mediation” and “gazing meditation”. The former allows guests to use one of four cushioned pods as they listen to meditation sessions guided by Pure Yoga instructors using noise-cancelling headphones and iPads. Those who prefer gazing meditation can sit on the cushions and enjoy the graphics on the wall.

Gary Wise, regional marketing director of The Pure Group, said: “No matter how rushed the trip is, just a few minutes of calm can make all the difference.”

The Sanctuary welcomes all guests of The Pier Business class lounge, which include first- and business-class passengers on Cathay Pacific and Cathay Dragon flights; Diamond, Gold, and Silver members of the airlines’ Marco Polo Club frequent flyer program; as well as Sapphire and Emerald Oneworld members.
