The Ultimate Guide To Creating A Home Yoga Space


Yoga is a beautiful way to relax, and it’s relatable across different countries, languages, and cultures. However, while you might want to practice yoga daily, it’s difficult to make time to go to the studio if you have a busy schedule. Fortunately, you can create a sacred space in your home. It’s one way to acknowledge your commitment to yoga. Having a yoga room gives you the opportunity to practice daily. If you’re thinking of creating a home yoga space, here is a guide to follow.


Location is essential when designing your dream home. The same applies to your Zen space too. If you have a spare study room or a small bedroom, you can convert it into a yoga space. Nonetheless, if you don’t have an extra room, go for a quiet, secluded area in your home far from noise and foot traffic. Opt for a space where you can put a mat in and one that doesn’t feel crowded. Outdoors work great if you live in a sunny state; the sound of birdsong or being besides trickling water can help to keep you grounded in the movement. Check to ensure the surface is flat for balancing postures. A flat area also works great as it helps you root down into the earth.


Your chosen space needs to be free of distractions and clutter. Get rid of pet toys, papers, furniture and any knick-knacks. Store any items in a box or a basket. Determine if you’ll use a carpeted area or a hard surface. If you choose a carpeted area, you may want to add a board underneath as this prevents tripping. The next step is to make an altar where you can reconnect and meditate. At the altar, you can have flowers, incense, and photos. You’ll also need a yoga mat and props like straps, foam blocks, and cushions. Adjust the temperature to your comfort level and burn incense or sage to set the mood..


Vastu is the knowledge of space and living in alignment with sacred geometry and cosmic patterns. The science dictates that a space should be spiritually satisfying, pleasing in appearance, and comfortable. Also, your space should create an uplifting aura, inspire peace, and create a feeling of harmony. Creating your home yoga space is an excellent way to stay motivated to practice regularly. Also, it’s a chance to find out how a space can be uplifting. Don’t forget to set the sound using a Bluetooth speaker. Use the above tips to make your chosen space sacred and create an aura to inspire you.


It’s tempting to grab something you forgot when you’re practicing at home, but this will only welcome distractions. Make sure that your socks, blanket, strap, blocks, and yoga mat are all stored in a place near your space. A basket is a great place to store your essential yoga tools.
