We have gathered all the information you need on how to make a yoga room at home. Find out more!


There is no better time to get into yoga than now. Our lifestyle is too fast and stressful for us to not just stop and take a breath. So, if you’re planning on getting into yoga but don’t want to leave the comfort of your home, you’ve come to the right place. Setting up a yoga room at home is not that difficult. You just have to create that perfectly calming environment that is great for yoga or just a relaxing afternoon. Create a light and soothing place in your home with the help of just a few products. We have put together a few yoga room ideas for your home in this article.

Do You Need A Separate Yoga Room?

Creating a space for yoga at home does not necessarily mean setting up a separate room. If you have the luxury of an extra room in your home then go ahead and decorate the room to create the perfect yoga-like environment. However, many people may not have the option of having a separate room for yoga and that is okay. The meditative qualities of yoga can be felt with just a few things. You can easily transform a corner in your living room into a yoga space or create the perfect yoga space on your balcony.

Clear The Way, Clear The Mind

De-clutter yoga room

Clearing your mind of stressful thoughts is only possible when your surrounding is relatively de-cluttered as well. You can’t expect to achieve clarity sitting in the middle of absolute chaos. If you can, you must be a master of meditation. The first thing you need to do when creating a space at home for yoga is- to keep the area clean. By clean we mean hygienic and clutter-free. Even if you are clearing out a corner in the living room, make sure that you are leaving enough space for movement. Clearing out a corner does not mean you should pile up your furniture and cushions to one side that will defeat the purpose of your yoga time. If you have an individual yoga room, the equipment, furniture and decor of the room need to be well organised and minimalistic.

Colour it Cool

Cool toned colours

This goes for all the people who have a separate room for yoga. Colour therapy has proven to be very relaxing for the mind and is used a lot during therapy and massages. Incorporate the power of colour therapy in your yoga room by painting the wall in cool-toned colours. We would recommend going with shades of blue as that will sit well with the decorations in the room. Moreover, Yoga was originally performed outdoors usually with or before the rising sun. The blue colour on the walls can replicate the colour of the sky at dawn before the sun has fully risen.

A Treat for The Eyes


Our daily exposure to screens has increased a lot over the years and with the recent pandemic, it seems like half of our lives were spent in front of a computer, TV or phone screen. The best way to give your eyes some relief from the constant screen exposure is something green. Nature is the best healer but your yoga room can be filled with as many plants as there are corners in the room. The presence of plants also makes the room smell like a forest or a garden. Moreover, if you water your plants every time you do yoga, the room would smell like fresh rain on the soil.

Set The Mood

Mood lighting

The lighting in your yoga room or corner needs to be perfect. Ideally, we would suggest having a lot of windows in the room for natural light. Natural light can really brighten up the room especially if you have a lot of plants. However, if natural light is not possible then soft lighting is the way to go. If you plan on using LEDs, then don’t go for the bright ones. Choose ones that can change colours or are at least dimmable. You can also go for hanging lanterns or pendant lights.

How To Set Up a Yoga Room At Home?

Once the basics of the room are done, you need to pay attention to decorating the room and setting it up. Along with the calming atmosphere, you will need to add certain practical items to the room. Certain storage and decoration pieces are a great way to give the yoga room in your home a complete look.


Whether you have a separate room or corner in the bedroom for your daily yoga, you will need a storage option for your yoga equipment. Yoga mats, blocks and resistance bands don’t take up too much room but still need to be stored in something. For apartment dwellers, a storage box that can easily fit under the bed is a great option. Homeowners can install shelves and cabinets in their yoga room. We would recommend going for wooden storage shelves or cabinets. Wooden goes well with the natural theme of the room. You can store additional things such as your yoga attire and towels.

Decoration Pieces

If you have storage shelving in the yoga room, you can use part of it to store your yoga equipment and the rest to display things. Tiny plants and decorative crystals can add to the aura of the room. Additionally, always add some sort of scent to the room with diffusers, scented candles or incense sticks. Lavender, peppermint and jasmine are great options for calming scents.

Another important aspect of every yoga room is a mirror. A full-length mirror is almost necessary if you have the space. You can skip this step if you don’t have the space. Mirrors make the room appear bigger since they reflect light. But more importantly, they are a great way to keep a check on your form when doing yoga.

Your Safe Haven

A yoga room at home should be the one place where you can completely relax. Add everything you need to relax in this one room or corner. From your favourite scented candles to rattan wall decorations, there is no limit to what you can do with your yoga room. You don’t HAVE to use this space just for yoga. This room can be the one place in your house where you can enjoy a hot cup of tea by yourself.
