Create a Personal Yoga Studio in your VersaTube Building


Create a Personal Yoga Studio in your VersaTube Building

by VersaTube on January 30, 2019

Always wanted your very own yoga studio? Many people in this situation end up using their garage. Afterall, the mighty garage can be used for so much more than dusty storage bins and muddy boots. If you’re a yoga and fitness fan, consider turning your underutilized garage space into a personal yoga studio.

VersaTube makes it simple, easy and affordable! For the DIY’er and the busy-bee alike, our garage building kits come standard and custom-made.

Here’s how you can create your own personal yoga studio in your VersaTube garage:

  1. Add Flooring. Add natural flooring such as hardwood or tile. Carpet and cement are not ideal as they make it difficult for yoga mats to grip the floor during yoga exercises and poses. Use flooring with neutral or muted coloring that won’t distract you during yoga sessions.

  2. Insulate Your Studio. Nobody likes practicing yoga or fitness in a chilly or damp garage. Your studio should be comfortable and warm enough to help you relax your muscles. Cool air can lead to muscle strain as it will seriously impeded your body’s ability to relax during stretches and deep breathing exercises.

  3. Storage Shelves. Although yoga doesn’t require a ton of equipment, you’ll want to make sure that you have some of the basic equipment recommended for yoga. Consider adding wooden or metal shelving on your garage walls for storing equipment such as mats, yoga blocks, weights and towels.

  4. Earthy Tones. Natural colors will help you stay focused during sessions. Some people choose to paint their walls and floors with neutral tones that match with the overall decor and atmosphere. Browns, soft greens, lavender and off-white are typical colors used for a “zen” look and feel. Just make sure that the colors you choose aren’t competing with each other. Try using the color wheel if you’re not sure which colors go well together.  

  5. Natural Lighting. Most yoga studios have natural lighting. Add windows with frosted glass to your garage for privacy and natural light. Additionally, you can place a lamp in the corner of your garage with soft light (white or yellow depending on your preference) for late night sessions.

  6. Tranquil Decor. Yoga is all about minimalism and inner peace, so it goes without saying that your decorations should fit with the atmosphere you’ve created. Here are a few decor ideas:

    • A small, portable water fountain can provide you with the soothing sound of water as it trickles down over rocks.

    • Paintings with natural landscapes can be hung on the walls.

    • Attractive bare branches or plants displayed on the walls play into the “earthy” theme preferred by yoga enthusiasts.

    • Inspirational or yoga-inspired posters can be used to fill up blank wall space.   

  7. Weather Proofing. Make sure that your garage-turned-yoga-studio is fully weatherproofed for all seasons. Weather-resistant garage doors will make a significant difference for you during mild to severe weather. Wind, snow or extreme heat shouldn’t stop you from this important daily or weekly ritual!
