Yoga is derived from the word yoke which means union or joining. Hence, Yoga is literally the joining together of the finite self and the infinite self. The finite self is defined as the actual physical body and the experiences that we have physically. Everyone can relate to the physical body because it is a real entity that can be seen and touched.Next comes the infinite self. This is the inner self- the higher self-the spiritual self. Yoga provides the skills necessary to connect mind, body, and soul.
A room in which a person can practice a yoga routine must be one that blends in comfort with an aura of relaxation. In order to truly reap the benefits of yoga, a person must be able to move around freely and in perfect comfort. When considering your yoga room decor and design you must be sure to add things that will free you mentally while in the yoga practice so that its benefits will be felt to their fullest.
The color that you choose for your yoga room should be an earthy tone. Perhaps a rosy yellow or a waterfall blue/white combination of our cotton wall tapestries would be a great color for this room. This will add to the calming effects of yoga while in practice of it.
Another color choice may be a deep red to reflect the color of decor that yoga originated from. Lightweight and sheer organza sari curtains would create a splendid ambience for your yoga practise.Either way, you want the color to help your mind relax as you concentrate on particular muscle groups in your practice.
Statues, carvings and wall decor that imbibe the spiritualism of yoga are another important part of yoga. The colors of the wall tapestry you choose can either match or contrast with the colors that you’ve chosen to paint the room.
