This Om House

Creating a yogic sanctuary in your own home can transform your practice—and your house—into a comfortable and peaceful escape. Whether you're remodeling your home, changing the purpose of an old guest room, or enhancing your garden, a few ideas can transform the space into your own studio.

As you design your yoga space, try to make use of natural light and airflow so that you're less reliant on electricity. Not only will you connect to the natural energy around you, you'll save on your bills—making your wallet a yogic sanctuary of its own.

Look for natural props and materials like bamboo, organic cotton and hemp, or natural rubber when outfitting your practice space. By going chemical free, you will make yourself and the environment balanced for years to come.

Transforming existing space is the best way to create an eco-friendly yoga area in your home. If you clear out items as you renovate, recycle or give away whatever you can to avoid adding to the landfill, or be inventive with repurposing.
