Yoga is something that is so beneficial no matter the duration of the exercise. Just spending 10 minutes a day stretching and variating yoga poses is incredible for your health. A few to mention: mental relaxation, improved sleep, alleviate arthritis symptoms, improves flexibility and balance, and it's good for the heart!
So, if you're looking to create a yoga scene at home, here is a guide to making a practical and soothing yoga scene.
Find a space that is open, a place you know is great for yoga and stretching! It is important that not only do you find a space, but it is clutter free of things like chunky furniture, dangerous corners and edges, and items of no practicality are to be removed! If not, the space you have must be big enough where you can leave those items in the room without it posing a risk of danger.
This is so you can perform your yoga exercises with so much more physical and mental breathing room so that you can keep calm and concentrate on your workout. This also keeps it safe for yourself by removing hazards!
The easiest step: open the blinds and curtains! Get in as much natural light as possible which will really help get you into the calming yoga mood. Add in additional lighting, such as lamps, LED lights or fairy lights too!
You need to get the correct flooring for yoga! No slippery surface or rugged carpet which can be inconvenient for yoga. You will need a flat, even and hard surface where there is a good grip - for example, wooden flooring, cork, bamboo, porcelain tile or marble or some examples.
When doing yoga poses, it's always handy to check your form because you should never be doing an incorrect pose or workout as this can lead to an injury. You want to target the right muscles and reap benefits from the workout, and as good as it is to follow a YouTube video, you may still need to correct your form which can be spotted by using a mirror. Of course, there's always a muscle-to-mind connection, but sometimes our judgement can be off!
You will need to decorate your yoga scene with the essentials! This includes a Yoga mat, yoga ball, a water bottle to stay hydrated and if you can- a water dispenser tank! This makes it easier to refill and stay hydrated. You can get a multifunctional pillow for yoga support of the neck, back and waist too!
You can think about installing a TV, or a stand for your device so you can watch a yoga routine you want to follow or keep entertained with your favourite show!
Lastly, you can hang up a clock and some wall art and place pots of plants around the room to keep the room zen-friendly and soothing…. your yoga scene is a place of serenity!
