5 top tips for making an intentional home studio space
- FIND A NOOK : it doesn't have to be a big one, just big enough for your mat really. Preferably uncarpeted and with natural light.
- MAKE A BOUNDARY : make sure your nook is in a place that you won't be distracted and those around you know that you'd like not to be distracted.
- DE-CLUTTER or DECORATE : set it up in whatever way brings you calm.
- MAKE IT SMELL NICE , LIGHT A CANDLE : burning essential oils that help settle the nervous system is wonderful invitation to practice.
- GIVE YOURSELF PROPS : set yourself up with everything you need to support your practice.
I'm sure there are plenty of other ways to help tether you to the online yoga space, but I've found these to be really helpful. And of course, perhaps the most important way to keep you engaged in an online class is through your connection to the teacher. Below are my top five online platforms and teachers below that I have loved & learnt from over the years. I'd love your recommendations so please feel free to leave them in the comments.
And if you're still not sure what props to start with, these are a few of my personal favourite home studio essentials :
A set of birch yoga blocks
2 x yoga blocks are always better than one. Not only do blocks help you find greater depth in your poses but they are fantastic strengthener tools.
A cylinder bolster
A Desha yoga mat
Happy space making yogis ,
