How to easily create your own home yoga space
It’s not necessary to have a dedicated room for your home yoga space. I’ve carved out a little nook that I find peaceful and have made that my yoga and stretching space. These are the 6 essentials I keep there to encourage myself to practice more yoga at home.
Home Yoga Mat
The foundation for all yoga and stretching poses. I prefer a thicker (1/2 inch) more cushioned mat to help my knees feel a little more comfortable. While there are many pricey mats out there, this basics mat is great quality, durable and affordable even comes with a carry strap. Available in 7 colors.

Yoga Blocks and strap
We all need a little help and support getting into certain yoga poses. If your hips and hamstrings are tight, like mine are, yoga blocks and straps are fantastic assists. My yoga strap doubles as a stretching tool after a run as well.

Keep your mat cleaner and less slippery with a towel designed especially for yoga. It is sweat resistant and quick drying. I have 2 of these and love them. Available in 7 colors.
Perfect for Savasana, Restorative yoga, meditation, and just relaxing, yoga bolsters or pillows are a great addition to your collection. Available in 6 colors.
Scents and Smells
Having a few scented candles and or a diffuser in your yoga nook, adds extra sensory comfort.
A fun addition to any home yoga space. This set of 3 different sized yoga wheels come in their own storage bag. Get extra support to hold poses or use like a foam roller on sore muscles.

Post-run, post-workout, or anytime, yoga does a body and mind good. Hope my ideas give you some inspiration to create your own home yoga space. Cheers to more Namasté and Savasana in 2021.
