How to Create the Perfect Garden Yoga Studio
If you’re looking for a serene and peaceful environment to practice yoga, consider installing a garden yoga studio. Garden yoga rooms can provide the perfect setting for your yoga practice and can also be great places to host yoga classes or workshops. Here are some tips for creating the perfect garden yoga studio in your own backyard:
- Choose the right location for your garden yoga room
The location of your garden yoga studio is important for two reasons: first, you want to make sure it’s in a peaceful and quiet spot in your garden; and second, you want to make sure it has the right amount of natural sunlight. If possible, choose a spot that gets morning sun and afternoon shade, as this will provide the perfect lighting for your garden yoga studio and enable you to practice your Sun Salutations.
- Create a garden yoga studio you can use all year round
Your garden yoga studio should be a space you can enjoy all year round, regardless of the weather. All our garden rooms are built with weather-proof and energy-efficient materials so you can use your space whatever the weather, but you may also wish to add some extra features to make it extra cosy. Installing a wood-burning stove creates a welcome ambience in the cooler months, and stylish radiators can provide a modern and functional addition to your space.
- Use comfortable and durable flooring in your garden yoga studio
The flooring in your garden yoga studio needs to be comfortable enough for you to practice yoga on, but it also needs to be durable enough to withstand wear and tear. A carpet is a good option for garden yoga studios, as it’s soft and comfortable. Alternatively, hardwood or laminate flooring gives a natural, tactile feel that is easy to clean and can be topped with comfortable mats on which to practice.
- Select peaceful and calming décor for your yoga room
When choosing décor for your garden yoga studio, select items that are peaceful and calming. Choose colours that are soothing and muted and select furniture and accessories that have a simple, uncluttered look. Avoid anything that is too busy or brightly coloured, as this will be distracting and make it difficult to relax. Instead, focus on creating a space that is serene and calming, so you can fully engage and enjoy your yoga practice.
- Consider your clients or guests
If you are hosting clients in your garden yoga studio, it’s important to create a space that is both comfortable and inviting. If your yoga room is purely for personal use then it can be tailored to your exact taste and preferences, but if your garden room is a place of business then there might be a few extra elements you could include to make your clients feel comfortable. A private place to change or wait for their appointment could be beneficial, as would a toilet or shower room. Also, consider plumbing your outdoor yoga studio so that you have running water to offer refreshments, or maybe include a water feature for the ultimate zen.
