WEEKEND READ | AVAIL YOUR TIME TO CREATE A TRANQUIL YOGA STUDIO AT YOUR HOME
Time to peace out, revamp a little, and start a soul-stirring yoga journey
How often does your mind, body, and soul collectively breath? Well yes, it’s yoga that we’re talking about but ‘at home’– although we know that the phrase ‘I practice yoga at home’ is easier said than done but what’s even difficult is to stay consistent with it. Ever wondered that décor could be a reason behind this lack of interest and dedication? And why you can effortlessly go for classes at the ‘Yoga studio’ but don’t feel like doing it at home? We tell you why – because of the tranquil and zealous décor sensibilities that wash down your stress right when you step in. Maybe it’s the emptiness, or scented essential oils, or the lightings or the very calm Buddha statue greeting at the entrance – but it is definitely the energy of the surroundings!
Whether you already are a yoga enthusiast or planning to add yoga in your daily routine, this is the weekend when you should pull your socks up and with a little bit of planning and purchasing, spruce up your home space with a personal yoga haven – because you definitely deserve a good-energy oasis at home to start your blissful journey of ‘Om’.
If you are ready, here’s how you should make your home ready for it! Go Green
Greenery is not just soothing to eyes and improves air quality, but is also very therapeutic. And nothing can be better than adding a green view in your yoga room. They will help in providing a calm environment and bringing nature in, especially in the concreate world where we are living. Add a few creative earthen pots or consider forming a vertical garden on the accent wall – simply create your little nook of nature in your yoga room and do the asanas in serenity.
To get the Zen-out vibe, don’t underestimate the lighting effect. Good lighting has much more to do with your mood – the warmer it gets the calmer your mood will be. If possible, try installing dimmer switches on overhead lights or put few pendant lights overhead. Even investing in good candles can also create a huge impact. And if you are looking for something being good for your health and yet setting a good lighting mood, opt for Himalayan pink salt lamps and feel the magic. Lightweight cotton drapes are also a great option to filter the natural light from outside as well as creating some privacy while you are enjoying your daily rejuvenation time. Well! They also make for a really pretty Instagram backdrop (because you want the world to know, right?)
Give your yoga room a chic look, by adding a few elements like a meditation chair or a floor cushion. They turn out to be the perfect place to do some light stretching or to simply sit comfortably and just ‘be’. And how about a cosy little tea-table when you want to take a small break? You can also choose to add a meditation shrine table in your yoga room, to give it a very raw feel. Tip: choose the one with wooden carvings and atop a rustic-golden Buddha statue to make it look regal.
And while sprucing up your yoga space, you may want to add a few luxury items. Whether it’s a cashmere blanket or an antique art-deco, think of putting at least some of the splurge-worthy elements which not only add opulence but value to your personal yoga studio. You can also create unique storage space by adding an antique old trunk to house your yoga essentials. While buying those, do keep an eye for complementing sculptures and wall arts to set a theme for your space.
