The perfect yoga space for you
No matter what your favourite hobby is, there often comes a point when you dream of having a space designed entirely for you to enjoy it in.
Yoga is no different. If you've recently taken up this hobby, you may well be feeling its benefits already, and be desperate to practice as much as you can.
You might also be starting to think that it would be good to have your own special space to enjoy yoga at home.
Here are just a few tips that could help you create your dream yoga space, with only a little time and effort.
Pick your room
One of the great things about yoga is that you really don't need much space to practice in - so even that relatively small spare room you've been wondering what to do with could work, so long as it's big enough for you to stretch in and go through all the poses you'll want to do.
Decorate as you wish
This is your space, where you'll be enjoying a hobby that's special to you. As such, you shouldn't have to put up with a paint colour or style that doesn't suit your needs.
The best thing for you to do would be to style the room so that it makes you feel happy, relaxed and ready to enjoy yoga, and of course the way to achieve this will differ from person to person.
If you're wondering exactly what sort of decoration to use, why not simply opt for something very simple, like plain walls in white or another soothing shade?
Keep it ventilated
You may well want to make sure your room has a window that can open in it, and also a radiator. This way, you can control the temperature and make sure you stay comfortable while you do yoga, be it on a very hot, stuffy day, or on a chilly winter evening!
Kit your room out with the right equipment
One great thing about yoga is that, despite the variety it offers, it doesn't actually need you to invest in much specialist equipment.
However, you will certainly want to get some yoga equipment in place for your room. And you might want to invest in two of each item, so that you've always got one ready to use in your yoga space, and another to take with you when you attend classes.
Yoga mats are of course one of the most important pieces of yoga equipment. There are a wide variety of types to choose from, made from a variety of different materials.
Considerations you might want to keep in mind include colour. This is obviously something that is down to personal preference, but it's also possible you might want to match you mat to the shades you've chosen for the yoga space you've created.
Some of the brands you might want to look into include Agoy, Jade Yoga and Dragonfly Yoga, to name just three.
Yoga towels can be used on top of a yoga mat. Again, you may wish to invest in one or more of these to use while practicing yoga either outside the home or in your new yoga space. As with yoga mats, various colours and brands are available to choose from.
There are also hand towels available that can be used while you're doing yoga, to help you stay as comfortable as possible.
Other yoga equipment
Other equipment that may have a place in your yoga space include specialist yoga cushions, yoga blocks and yoga balls.
And one more thing...
Before you start enjoying your yoga room, remember that you should be sure you know what you're doing first. You don't want to risk injury by attempting a move in the wrong way, so it's a good idea to learn in a class with an expert teacher, or in a situation when you can be absolutely clear you're doing yoga correctly, before you attempt to practice unaided.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
