If you’ve been wanting to create a calm, peaceful-feeling yoga room in your home, there are a few fun and Zen-filled steps you’ll want to take.

Nicole Fonovich of Nicole Anne Yoga offers a mobile yoga and holistic wellness practice specializing in Advanced Yoga Training, Yoga Nidra, Sound Healing, Restorative Yoga, Holistic Nutrition, and Life Coaching. She recommends finding a space in your home that does not have a lot of traffic or noise. The best yoga spaces are sparse and calm. Also, choosing calm colors is key. Paint the walls of your yoga room in a soothing color. Muted cooler tones, warm whites, shades of tan, light green, lavender and light pink are ideal. Lighting is also incredibly important and can have a huge impact on your mood and well-being. If possible, install dimmer switches on overhead lights. Small details can have a huge impact in a yoga space, so accessorize with intention (use scented candles, an essential oil diffuser, incense or aromatherapy spray to create a welcoming feel to the space.)
