Many yoga enthusiasts are choosing to move yoga out of a traditional studio and inside the privacy of their own home. Instead of working around the hours of a private studio you can engage in the soothing meditation of yoga when it suits your busy schedule. By creating a luxury home yoga space, you can use the practice of yoga to sooth the body and soul any time of day or night.

Finding the Right Space for a Home Yoga Retreat

Some homeowners are devoting a room, such as a spare bedroom or office space, to use as a yoga room. Others are finding unused space in a finished basement or large living room to create a yoga and meditation space. Regardless of whether your space is small or large, by dedicating a spot inside the home to focus on the peace of yoga practice, there is no more reason to miss time tending to you.

Finding the Right Furnishings for a Home Yoga Retreat

Yoga studios tend to be minimalist by definition. You will not need to worry over furniture choices or decorating inspiration. Hardwood floors are ideal as they provide a more supportive surface for yoga movements that could lead to slipping. Some yoga studio designers opt for a small altar or shrine with candles and statues to create an atmosphere of serenity. More elaborate yoga spaces are complete with plush yoga mats and cushioned surfaces. Including soft surfaces for resting is always a nice touch for after a tough session.

Finding the Right Color for a Home Yoga Retreat

One way to make your yoga space feel more Zen is to choose a paint color that is soothing and inviting. Some will opt for neutral colors such as beige, white or light browns, while others will look for more pops of color. Light colors such as lavender, aqua and light gold shades make for a nice warm feeling. What is most important is to find a color that creates the right feeling for your particular studio.

Others Ways to Create an Ideal Yoga Retreat

An important element to your home yoga experiences is sound. By adding a sound system where you can implement soothing sounds and music, you can take your yoga retreat to the next level. Adding the ability to control temperature is also a nice bonus. It is also helpful to choose a space that capitalizes on natural lighting so artificial lighting can be avoided during daytime yoga sessions. A final way to make a home yoga space more personalized is to add scented candles or incense to an atmosphere that helps increase your productivity during yoga sessions.

A home yoga retreat can be small or large, simple or adorned; however, what it most important is that it creates an environment where you can meditate, stretch and get the most out of your yoga sessions.
