Looking to get into the habit of doing yoga at home? You’re not alone!
Many people are unable to work out because they don’t have the money or resources for a gym membership. Even fitness gurus are faced with this dilemma when they’re traveling but still want to stay in shape.
The solution? Set up an at-home yoga studio!
All you need is a few props and some motivation, and you’ve got yourself a full workout regimen without ever leaving your house.
Read on for more information on how to get this done.
1. Invest in Yoga Mats for Your At-Home Yoga Studio
A yoga mat is an important part of your at-home studio. It keeps your hands and feet from slipping during poses, which helps you with better form and prevents injuries.
This is the first step in how to set up a yoga studio at home.
How much should you spend on a yoga mat? If you have a look, they usually cost between $15 and $20. Just make sure to get a size that is appropriate for your home studio, anything longer than six feet may be too bulky.
2. Get Some Blocks and Straps
Blocks and straps can help you do more yoga when you are at home. Blocks can help in poses like Bridge, Half Moon, and Triangle. Straps can help with leg stretches and other exercises that make you more flexible.
This will cost around $20 in total. Yoga blocks and straps are durable, so you won’t have to replace them often.
3. Get a Few Blankets for Floor Work
Blankets are an easy way to make your floor softer for those challenging yoga positions. You can either buy new ones or find some at a garage sale or thrift store.
You will need two yoga blankets. They usually cost around $20.
4. Get Some of Your Favorite Music
Working out is a lot easier when you are listening to your favorite music. This way, you will be motivated and inspired to keep going. Make sure you have a playlist ready with songs that make you feel good.
5. Say Goodbye to Clutter by Setting Up Cords and Chargers Nearby
Since all these props need electricity, it is helpful if they are near a power source. I like to keep mine plugged in by my bed, but for this studio, we recommend finding a space near your living room or kitchen.
That way, you are greeted with beautiful music every morning. Just make sure it is easy to get to if anything malfunctions.
6. Make Your Own Temple-Like Atmosphere With Incense
Don’t want your apartment or clothes to smell like someone else’s sweaty workout? Use incense! It makes your apartment smell nice without being too strong. Just get a bamboo incense holder, that costs approximately $10.
7. Add Some Personal Touches With Photos and Flowers
This costs nothing, but the greatest souvenirs are always memories and mementos so take some photos and place fresh flowers in your studio whenever possible!
The cost? None, it’s free!
