YOGA ROOM IDEAS
THE ESSENTIALS – YOGA EQUIPMENT YOU’LL NEED
To set up a home yoga room you don’t need much equipment. Ideally, you want your yoga room to be a clean and uncluttered space. All you need is a quality yoga mat and some yoga blocks. You may also consider adding other yoga room essentials to your space like a yoga strap, a bolster or a blanket.
YOGA ROOM DECOR – KEEP IT SIMPLE
A minimalist decor will help you create a place of zen, where you can disconnect from the outside world and focus on your practice.
Choose decorations that are inspiring and functional, such as yoga and meditation books, a piece of art, houseplants, vases, or a small speaker.
To keep the space organised and uncluttered, store your non-essentials in cabinets, shelves or baskets.
CHOOSE A SOOTHING COLOUR PALETTE
Your yoga room is a place for exercise, meditation and peace. Choosing the right colour palette for this space is important as it can affect the way you feel in it.
Earth tones can be incredibly calming and grounding, making them excellent colour choices for a yoga room. Light cool tones such as blues and lavender also enhance a calming state of mind.
CREATE A NATURE-INSPIRED ENVIRONMENT
Findings show that exposure to nature can lead to a decrease in stress levels and anxiety, while boosting mood and self-esteem.
Bring the outdoors in by adding natural and organic elements into your home yoga room, such as houseplants, green walls (walls of plants), and exercise equipment made of natural materials, such as cork and wood, to give you a sense of connection with nature.
LET IN NATURAL LIGHT
Set your yoga room or space next to a window or another area where you can benefit from natural light and fresh air.
To increase natural light in your space, consider leaving your windows unadorned or choose the thinnest material for your curtains.
ADD A MIRROR OR MIRRORED WALL
Adding a mirror or mirrored wall to your yoga room will not only help you correct your form but will also lend the illusion of a larger and brighter space. As mirrors reflect light into the room, they can double the amount of sunlight that enters the space.
ELEVATE YOUR PRACTICE WITH SCENTED CANDLES OR INCENSE
Using candles or incense for home yoga and meditation help create a peaceful atmosphere, helping you focus and reach a calm state of mind.
