Attending studio yoga classes is a perfect way to develop a consistent yoga practice. Distraction-free environment, peaceful vibe, and community spirit – the benefits are countless.
But alas, life is not perfect.
Training with an instructor is costly, time-consuming, and not always convenient. So should you just give up and put your yoga practice on hold?
Not at all!
If you can’t make it to a yoga studio, you can bring the studio atmosphere into your own home by creating a private sacred yoga space.
Why Do You Even Need A Dedicated Yoga Space At Home
I’ve been traveling a lot for the last couple of years. Always on the move from one apartment and hotel room to another, I didn’t have the time and chance to set up my own yoga corner. I just rolled my mat wherever I had free room (I even did yoga in the hotel corridor once) and started flowing. Until someone or something interrupted my yoga practice.
They say a little bit of yoga is better than no yoga. I agree 100%. But with that lifestyle, the quality of my practice was suffering. Moreover, often, it was far from being peaceful.
Now that I’ve settled down (hopefully for a while 🙂 and dedicated a corner in my living room specifically to yoga, it finally hit me how much I was missing out. Such a simple thing as making room for yoga and other wellness routines has enhanced my practice and well-being in so many ways!
Here are five positive changes that happened to me after I’d put effort into arranging my home yoga space:
I became more focused. Believe me, this will happen to you too! Whether it’s a separate room, a small nook or a balcony, your yoga space becomes your sacred territory. With time, you’ll train your mind to switch off any concerns about the household, work, or life moment you step into your zen area. Instead, you’ll learn to focus on yourself and your practice.
You probably won’t be able to prevent pets from coming into your space, especially if you haven’t arranged it in a separate room. But you can keep people and all the distracting technology away. For example, I put my phone on mute and turn off laptop notifications before stepping onto the mat. And my husband knows that when I’m in my “zen zone,” I’m not available for conversation or answering questions.
I became more motivated. We all have days when we don’t want to do anything. As good as yoga makes me feel, sometimes I just don’t want to practice. But I love my yoga space since it’s just so cozy and beautiful. So I can casually sit on the yoga mat, switch on the music, light the candles and voila – my body starts stretching, moving and, all of the sudden, this turns into a full hour flow.
I became more relaxed. When I feel blue, anxious, or angry, I just fire some incense, light the candles and put on soothing music. How can you still feel stressed after this wellness treatment?
I became more mindful. Your yoga space doesn’t have to be reserved for yoga only. There are so many other things you can do there: journal, reflect on the day, plan, meditate, read a book, relax with a cup of tea (or any other strong beverage), craft a handmade decoration.
I became more creative. If you’re not an interior designer but always dreamed of being, this is your chance! Setting up home yoga space is soooo much fun, especially with all the dedicated goods for yoga readily available on the internet. You can also try handcrafting parts of your décor (dream catchers, for example) to add a more personal touch to your future yoga corner.

Plants & Terrariums
Green color is calming. Don’t trust me, trust the science!
Being near indoor plants and taking care of them is good for our emotional stability and mental health, according to this 2015 study.
No wonder. Our chaotic and busy lives rarely give us a chance to even go out and sit in the park to wind down. Besides, let’s not forget that not everyone is lucky enough to live in a sunny state with evergreen nature.

If green thumbs is a total opposite of you, the fake ones will do the work too (except, obviously, they won’t make your air cleaner).
