The digital world is distracting. Everywhere you turn, there’s a screen in your face – is it any wonder wellness workspaces are trending in offices? Offering employees a chance to recharge and regain productivity, the trend has carried over to the home. If you want to get inspired to create a zen environment, these handful of yoga and meditation rooms will do just that.
Sculptures and Low Furniture
Botanical wallpaper makes an unusual backdrop in this enchanting home yoga studio, where a low-lying bench stows essentials. A sculpture in a standing tree pose suits the space, as does the Buddha head tucked into the cubby.
If you live a warm climate – or one that’s tolerable for half the year – then this brilliant boho set-up is for you. It’s essentially a bunch of bright, patterned textiles thrown down and strung up. All that’s missing is you and your yoga poses.
This 140-year-old converted church makes for an ideal (and idyll) spot to practice yoga or just get stretching. Resist the urge to fill the space with clutter and let the building envelop shine on its own.
In Your Element
This light and airy meditation room from Mike and Lisa Holmes is the perfect place to unwind. What more can you ask for? OK, you’ll have to add a mat to lie on, but there’s no excuse but to get your zen on.
Plain Has Punch
Keep yoga decor simple: use plants, candles and wind chimes. Add portable speakers to play comforting music. Of course, adding a spot for yoga essentials, like blocks and mats, is key.
Most people don’t have an entirely separate room to stretch the stress away. Get creative by unfurling a mat at the foot of your bed (or anywhere in your bedroom where there’s a sliver of space). Dim the overheads and practice your downward dog.
Wine and Yoga
This Ottawa home puts two of the homeowner’s favourite things into one room: yoga and wine. It just might be a contender for the most inspiring yoga space on this list.
Yoga for Kids
Turns out finding your zen isn’t just for grownups. We’re diggin’ this fun play space designed by the Property Brothers. Spoiler alert: once the kids have gone to bed, it can be your spot too.
So Red, Eh!
Have a home gym? Find a comfy spot between the weights and workout equipment for you to sweat and stretch.
