Yoga Studio at Home

Dec 26, 2017 01:21PM ● Published by Christina Burns

More than a physical workout, yoga fosters a deeper understanding of your body, mind, and soul. If you’ve committed to a yoga practice, you may want to create a space in your home where you can listen to your inner self and take a break from running on autopilot.   Ideally, this space should be tranquil, calm, and separate from the rest of your home.  

When I practice my yoga, I  need a good foundation.  As an Interior Designer I can’t say enough about how awesome and underestimated cork flooring is!  Here is why I’m convinced it is the best flooring choice for your yoga studio:

Cork is...

  • Healthy; naturally antimicrobial, it repels mold and mildew and has zero harmful chemicals

  • Water resistant; a water based coating allows you to bring on the sweat! Simply wipe clean

  • Shock absorbing; easy on joints (perfect for sensitive knees), and for flowing in and out of poses

  • Sustainable; the bark of the cork oak tree is harvested every 9 years without harming the tree

  • Warm; a thermal insulator, it reflects your body heat back to you

  • Durable; 3 times more resilient than wood flooring and can last 50 years or more

  • Fashionable; available in several colors with an unassuming yet unique style

A yoga room should also have natural light and a soothing color scheme. You may want to light candles or incense to evoke a meditative mood. Remember, this is a place for slowing down, reflecting, and discovering the best possible version of yourself.   Namaste.
