Here’s how you can make a yoga room in the comfort of your home
With this guide you will be able to achieve the same sense of bliss that is present in a yoga studio, without having to leave the comfort of your home. This inexpensive yoga sanctuary is very easy to create.
The first step to make a yoga room is to de-clutter the space you will be using.

Use scented candles
To create a welcoming feel to your yoga room, use incense, scented candles or aromatherapy sprays. A small shelf can be reserved in your yoga room to place flowers, statues and candles to give the room a calming feel.
Try looking for unique storage solutions, blankets, props and yoga mats at thrift shops or flea markets; an antique chest or trunk would also do. Interesting sculptures would also add to the ambience!
The trick is to make the yoga room as intentional and as simple as possible. You can even add a little wall art to give the room a personal touch.
