What do you need for your yoga shed?

  • Essential Oils Diffuser

If your local yoga instructor uses essential oils in class and you’ve enjoyed those, you might consider adding them to your own yoga room and practice. Here’s some basic information about essential oils being used in yoga practices. First, consult with your doctor before using essential oils or doing yoga on your own. They may be able to help you determine what types of essential oils to try.

  • Extra yoga mats and supplies

You may want to include some extra yoga mats, blankets, cork blocks, etc. That way if you have a friend that joins you occasionally or if your kids want to try it out with you one morning you’ll have the supplies they need.

  • Sound System

Add a sound system or battery powered bluetooth speaker to play relaxing, meditative music at a soft level.

  • Walls painted in muted tones

Paint in muted tones, such as a soft lavender or off white. Check out a few of these color options!

This will help you enter the room and immediately feel comfortable and relaxed. Also, with these softer colors it will give the room the appearance that it is more open and bright.

  • Heater or fans

If you want to add these amenities you may need to look into adding electricity to your shed. You may be fine without these extras in the fall or spring, but as winter comes in or summer begins, you may need these for your safety as you work out.  

Remember adding electricity is not something to take lightly and you will need a professional electrician to add it to your shed. You also will need to contact your local government to see if there are any permits you will need before adding electricity to your shed. Read more about this here!

  • Hang relaxing items from the walls

Choose items to hang that will help you relax. Remember minimalism is a good thing!  You want to give yourself a place to focus on your body and your breath and not necessarily your surroundings. But, if there’s a mantra or verse that helps you focus, add it to a wall. Or add calming landscape scenes to your walls. You could even hang a beautiful rug from the ceiling if you would like.

  • Add a journaling or reading corner

After you’ve had a good workout and are relaxed, before heading back inside your home to the hustle and bustle of the day, take a few minutes to just enjoy the quiet. Read, journal or just relax quietly as you sip your water. Add a comfy chair and lamp to a corner and you’re all set!
