Yoga or meditation is becoming a trend among urban people, and even some of them make yoga or meditation a part of their lifestyle. This is quite understandable considering that people in urban areas are often burdened with the demands of work and life which are sometimes quite stressful.
To calm the mind, many people in the city try yoga or meditation. However, a special area or room is needed to do meditation or yoga so that this activity can really be useful for relaxation, both for the mind and for the body. The design of the room for yoga must fulfill the following points:
The location of a yoga room is far from a nuisance and traffic, choose a room in a fairly quiet house, its location on the edge, and away from the entrance, living room, dining room, kitchen, or areas where many people come in and out easily. In fact, maybe you need to make a room or pavilion for yoga that is separate from the main building, and its location is close to the park, home page, or outdoor area.
Choose soft and soothing colors for the walls, when designs meditation rooms, presents colors and textures that bring peace and are able to calm the mind. Try not to choose dark colors, because this color will actually make the room look narrower and torment the mind. So, try to choose colors that are young but still calm, and avoid bright colors like bright orange or yellow. Light blue, milk chocolate, pandan green, and pastel colors will have a calming effect on the room for yoga. On the walls and floors, try to avoid ornaments or decorations that make you unable to concentrate.
Presents a fragrance of a yoga room with aromatherapy elements. To support yoga and meditation activities, certain fragrances are needed, such as fragrances from aromatherapy candles, fragrances from spices and vetiver, fresh floral fragrance, perfume or essence oils, and fragrances from incense. Fragrances in the form of candles or incense are fragrances most often used for yoga and meditation spaces. In fact, this aromatherapy candle not only creates a calm and peaceful feel from the fragrance, but also from the dim candle, but it can give a warm impression.
Bring live plants or a touch of nature in the room. If you live in an apartment that is far from trees, try to bring live plants in the room, by placing plants in pots near the window, so that the plants still have access to sunlight to grow. The existence of living plants will bring natural elements to the yoga room. Or to make it easier to place plants, then do yoga in the open space, which is on the balcony of the apartment surrounded by greenery. Present plants of various types, especially those with thick leaves, beautiful flowers, and can bear fruit. The idea to make a balcony as a yoga area is worth a try, especially for those who want to get a yoga sensation in an open space but do not have a terrace or yard.
Bring a comfortable carpet, cushion or cushion, Yoga is usually done on the floor using carpets, special pillows, or bases that can make us feel comfortable and relaxed to sit for several hours without moving too much. So, it is important to bring comfortable and soft seat covers in the room for yoga. Last but not least, make sure we also wear clothing that is soft and comfortable to use for meditation or yoga.
Good luck. Happy Weekend.
