How To Set Up The Perfect Home Yoga Space

How To Set Up The Perfect Home Yoga Space

 

 

Transform your yoga space into a haven of tranquility with a few special items

Yoga can be an incredibly personal and rewarding practice, physically, mentally and energetically. It has a way of transporting you away from the hustle and bustle of life, with all the stress, pressures and distractions it offers, and depositing you exactly where you are meant to be; in the here and now. 

 

As with most activities, preparation for your yoga session will help you to submerge yourself more deeply in the experience.

One of the beautiful things about yoga is how your experience can evolve. The more consistent you are with your practice, the deeper your experience can become. Physically you might notice yourself becoming stronger, more flexible, and energetically more balanced. Mentally, you will be able to cultivate more awareness of yourself. You will find yourself becoming more aware of the thoughts, as well as your body, and developing a better understanding of how they interact with each other.

 

Unfortunately, though, not everyone has the freedom or finances to attend regular classes. But this doesn’t have to stop you from getting your daily yoga kick! 

 

Yoga can be practised anywhere; inside, outside, in a class, or at your own home. That being said, some spaces are going to be more conducive to a really rewarding yoga practice, so it’s a good idea to give some thought to where you are planning to practice your yoga.


Setting up your own home yoga space will enable you to have the freedom to practice whenever you like. It will also provide you with the peace and privacy to really submerge yourself in the experience. 

 

Don’t let the limited space you might have put you off the idea because you don’t need a studio or even a spare room to practice yoga. Nor do you need mirrored walls, plush carpets or surround sound speakers. All you need is a peaceful spot, one that you can make small adjustments to, to help create an environment that will support the internalisation involved in practising yoga.

 

Here are some tips to help you set up a little slice of heaven in your own home:

Choosing your location -

 If you happen to have a spare studio outside, or even a spare room, fantastic! But don’t worry if you don’t because it isn't necessary. All you need is a quiet space with enough room for you to put a mat down and practice, undisturbed.

 

A few considerations when choosing your yoga space:

 

  • Ventilation - Practicing any health-based activity is best done in a well-ventilated area, to ensure that your increased respiration is being supported by clean air. Breath awareness plays such a important role in yoga, so it is even more important to choose an area that is adequately ventilated. Ideally, near a window that can be opened, and without too many overpowering smells.
  • Privacy - You might not have the luxury of having a yoga space where you can be completely private. However, it is a good idea to pick a place you can be free from disturbances. So ideally not a walk-through area, when you live with other people. It is also a good idea to switch your phone off, or put it to silent and leave it in another room.
  • Room - You might not require a whole room for your yoga space, but you do need to ensure you have enough room so that you can move about freely whilst practising. A good starting point is ensuring you have room for your mat, plus space to move your arms in all directions.
  • Comfort - You can make other adjustments to your space to ensure that you will be as comfortable as possible, for example, making sure that it is a comfortable temperature to practice in.

Setting up your space

Making sure your yoga space has everything you will need, within easy access, will help create the yoga space feel. 

 

Considerations include:

 

  • Yoga mat
  • Bolsters/blocks
  • Pillows
  • Light-weight shall/blanket
  • And anything else you use in your practice, such as mala beads, yantras, and music.

 

De-clutter

A busy space often leads to a busy mind. So try to de-clutter your yoga space as much as possible. Only have what is needed and remove what doesn’t suit the purpose of the space.

 .

Creating peaceful ambience

 Personalising your space in any way that will help you feel as relaxed and comfortable as possible is an important way to help support your practice.

Some basic consideration might include: 

 

  • Lighting - Try to opt for soft lighting if possible. This might mean using candles, or even a small lamp with a low-watt light bulb.
  • Alters - Many people like to have a small table or space where they can display images or anything that might promote spirituality, or help deepen your practice - for example, mala beads, candle, incense, oils, statues.
  • Music - Music is not essential to a yoga practice, however, it can be very calming, especially if you live in a noisy area. If using music, it is a good idea to create a playlist, or CD, that will run for the duration of your practice, so that you don’t have to stop to change songs mid-way. There are so many fantastic yoga compilations available online, some upbeat, some chill, so make sure you pick something that resonates well for you!
