A personal space for practicing yoga at home is a great way to keep up your fitness when you can’t go out regularly. Yoga is associated with finding your sense of calm and spirituality—the more peaceful and less flashy, the better. Decorating your yoga room is simple. Here are some ideas for inspiration.
Choose a room or any space free of loud noises, flashy lights, or anything that causes stress. When you are practicing asanas or meditation, you need to focus and be mindful, so it is better to pick a secluded spot. If you prefer to practice it outdoors on your lawn or garden, the crack of dawn is the best time, as the lighting is just perfect and the chirping of birds is soothing to hear.
If you choose a room as a yoga studio, de-cluttering is the first and foremost thing to get done. Clutter is often associated with a cluttered mind, and it is also known to harm your life. So, try and get rid of unnecessary things in the room and your house and make space for new possibilities! Keep things to a minimal and place only the essentials that inspire you and not what distract you.
Choose neutral and soft colors such as earthy brown, beige, minty green or icy blue. No need to create an accent wall or a statement with colors. Adding wooden shelves makes it look more aesthetic. You can have wicker baskets and other organic products to create a natural appeal.
You can add houseplants for a touch of greenery and beauty in your yoga room. Many indoor plants can thrive in low-light and require little maintenance, such as snake, monstera, English Ivy, parlor palm, and others. These plants are known to purify the air from toxins. You may also keep dried flowers for added fragrance.
Candles and scents
Most yoga parlors light candles or incense sticks, as they are symbolic of awakening your mind or chakras. You can use natural candles instead of scented ones if they are a concern.
Essential oils are a great way of adding beautiful fragrance to the room. It is better to invest in a good diffuser. You may use a fragrant herb bundle or rosemary, or native natural herbs to keep you in good spirits.
Add inspirational quotes, asana pictures, or ayurvedic guidelines in your yoga room. If you don’t have a separate room, you can hang floor-length curtains as a partition of space dedicated to yoga practice. You can add crystals to create a visual appeal. These are associated with energy in a yoga room. A huge mirror is helpful when you are practicing asanas. You can check and correct your alignment quickly.
