Whether you’re interested in starting yoga or you’re a seasoned pro, creating a space dedicated to its practice will ensure you hold yourself accountable. More importantly, when you fill the space with decorations, you’ll feel more motivated to do yoga whether you’d like to practice in the morning, on your lunch break, or after a long day at work.
Here are four ideas that will ensure you adore your new yoga room!
1. Add a Pop of Color to Neutral Walls
Neutral colors tend to provide a sense of tranquility to a space. However, to make your yoga room your own, you may want to incorporate pops of your favorite color or a color that makes you feel calm and collected. Common stress-reducing colors include yellow, soft blue, and pink. If you’re interested in incorporating a color but don’t want to overdo it, stick to adding a rug, motivational artwork, pot holders, and curtains that include your color of choice.
2. Incorporate Natural and Artificial Lighting
Nothing is better than a room with mood lighting. If you prefer bright lights, you may stick to an overhead light with open curtains. But if you want a more romantic feeling in your yoga room, add string lights to the walls and a couple of fun floor lamps. When you close the curtains, the room will be illuminated with soft yellow hues. This way, your yoga space will feel tranquil, and you can always add more lighting if necessary.
3. Integrate Plant Life
According to EcoWatch, house plants can boost your mood and productivity. So, why not add a handful of houseplants to your yoga room? The pot holders you choose can add a pop of color to the space, and you can pick out easy-to-care-for plants, such as snake plants, pothos, succulents, air plants, and spider plants. Using hanging pot holders on the ceiling or on curtain rods as well as plant stands on the floor can add some depth to the room, too.
4. Hang Up a Mirror
In order to perfect your yoga poses, you need to be able to see yourself! To do this, consider thrifting or buying a mirror from your favorite home goods store. The bigger, the better! Mirrors tend to make rooms appear larger, so if your yoga space is small, this purchase will definitely help. Plus, you can decorate your mirror and add a pop or color to match other décor throughout the room.
With these tips, you can create a yoga room you’ll want to visit daily. Happy posing!
