How To Set Up A Peaceful Home Yoga Studio
Linda is an office going girl who does a typical (9 to 5) corporate job and is kind of an introvert. Her peers and officemates decided to join yoga classes, so they asked her if she also wanted to join. At first, she denied but after researching the benefits of yoga, she made up her mind to join. She slept with the butterflies in her stomach to start off something new and beneficial.
After reaching the yoga center the next morning, she felt uncomfortable and strange. She had never been to a yoga center, not even the gym. So that feeling came naturally. She had a mixed emotion of eccentricity and excitement. She faced the real challenge when the instructor told her to join in.
As a newbie in yoga sessions, it was obvious that she didn’t know anything about yoga postures. She found them a bit awkward to do in front of all. She dropped the idea of joining in and went back.
Do you think this happened because Linda was an introvert? If yes, then my friend you are wrong. This was just an example. There are many people around the world, who find difficulty in doing exercise or yoga in-front of so many people (including me!). And other reason can be time issues. Whatever the reason is you should not stop yourself from being healthy and fit.
The perfect solution for this issue is a home yoga studio. Yes, you read it right!! A yoga room or space in your house, where you can learn and practice yoga without any hesitation. Now you’ll say how and what if there is no spare room in your home for this? Don’t worry…just keep on reading!! We know about the problems you are facing, that’s why we are going to tell you about how you can easily create a yoga space without any hassles.
A Quick Sneak-Peek On Yoga,
Yoga is about connecting your inner soul and mind to the present world. So whether you go to the yoga club or doing it in your yoga studio, the place doesn’t really matter, only yoga matters!!. But if you feel nervous and anxious or don’t have much time to go to the yoga place in the morning, then do this in your yoga room at home.
Yoga means clarification of BODY – MIND – SOUL!!
“Yoga adds years to your life and life to your years”
What is a Home Yoga Studio?
A home yoga studio is a term used for a place that is dedicated to doing workouts or yoga practices. Many people don’t like to go to the gym or don’t wanna spend hundreds of dollars on membership. For them, this a quick and inexpensive way to do workouts.
But what if there is no separate space for this in your home? Don’t worry; all these ideas are space sufficient that you can easily implement in any corner of your house.
Home Yoga Studio = Here and now is where yoga begins!!
Before you get started with the process, Here is the list of things that you’ll need in your yoga practice sessions:
- Yoga Mats
- Yoga Bolsters
- Yoga Blocks
- Yoga Strap
- Yoga Blankets
- Meditation Cushions
- Yoga wheels and balls
After you get the above supplies, now you’re ready to create a peaceful yoga room. With these simple home yoga studio ideas, you can quickly transform any place.
Select A Place
The first step is selecting a place or room where you want to make the studio. It can be an open outdoor place or a spare room you already have in your house.
“ You can also turn any corner of your room into a yoga practice spot.”
Paint the walls of the room with soothing and calm colors. The ambiance is as important as other things, and it really helps you to get in the mood.
“Choose neutral, muted, and cool tones of color like baby blue, mint green, or classic white.”
Set The Mood
Another effecting factor that helps you to remain calm and relaxed while doing yoga is Smell. Sometimes unpleasant smells such as sweaty mats and the stinky smell of husband’s shoes can disrupt the whole mood. Use scented candles and diffusers to cover all the obnoxious odors so that you can do your yoga without any interruptions.
“ Use various oils in the diffuser according to your mood and enjoy doing yoga.”
If your room has windows, open them to get the fresh air and vitamin D (sunlight). Natural lighting helps you to connect back with nature. But if your room doesn’t have windows to bring the sunshine, you can always go for the artificial lighting.
“Make sure the lighting is not too bright and harsh on the eyes.”
Decorate the place with “Buddha idols,” not only it is an eye-pleasing decor, but also it helps you in your meditation sittings. For asanas like Shavasana, you need to block the light, for that use curtains on the windows (they’ll also provide privacy).
“ Crystals are also a great decor piece as well as they’ll maintain your energy levels.”
Print some quotes on the wall to get motivation. Yes, it is important to get motivated every day, because there is no meaning of one day yoga!! (like Linda did). Right?? You can also paste some yoga posture stickers on the wall so that you can practice by seeing them.
“ Yoga is not about self-improvement; it’s about self-acceptance.”
Mirrors!! Not only they brighten up the whole space, but also you can see your yoga positions in them that you’re doing it right or not.
Place some green live plants in the corners of your room to really feel the nature. You’ll get refreshed and feel energetic whenever you enter this room.
“ Plants represents harmony and balance, so put plants that are easy to take care of ”
Play some light rhythmic background music whenever you do your yoga practice. Invest in some good sound quality speakers, that you can easily hook up with your phone or laptop.
“Make your own yoga playlist to make your workout easy and smooth.”
So don’t bound yourself like Linda, Make a simple, calm and relaxed yoga room at home and enjoy your yoga sessions with yourself. And also don’t forget to remove all the distractions and by this, we mean mobile, laptop and other annoying sounds (kitchen and washing machines and other noises). These noises will disturb your yoga practice, and you are not able to do it properly. For more inspirational decor ideas, visit Innovativedecorideas.
