Does Your Home Design Include a Yoga Studio? Are You Wishing It Did?
Many experts are predicting that the pandemic and the necessity of having to stay home in order to stay safe will have impacts on interior design in Asheville – and all across the country. One of many things that the skilled designers at Stratton Interior Design Group of Asheville may be asked to create in home designs moving forward is space for someone’s yoga practice.
From Seattle to South Beach, people are trying to find room to unfurl their yoga mats while quarantining at home. You may have seen images on social media of people in yoga poses in their living rooms, bedrooms and even their kitchens. Not ideal, but we certainly give these creative yogis credit for continuing to maintain their practice.
What Makes a Good Space for Yoga?
If you want to carve out some space in your home to practice yoga, there are some basic steps you can take that will help:
- Start by finding a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed. (If that’s too much too hope for, do the best you can!)
- Make sure the space allows plenty of room to move.
- With all the deep breathing you’ll be doing, you’ll want to make sure the space is clean.
- Clear away any distracting clutter.
- If the space you have chosen doesn’t have room to store your yoga gear – including your mat and any blocks, straps, towels or pillows you may want – make sure you gather it all together before you begin a session. And don’t forget your water!
