How To Create The Perfect HEATED At Home Yoga Studio
March 31, 2020 Posted by Y2 Yoga Blog
Step 1. Pick a room. Do you have any room you can think of that you don’t use very often? Can’t think of one? Get creative. When’s the last time you used your workout room? Playroom? Kid went off to college? Find an area that you’ll feel most comfortable practicing in.
Step 2: Does the room have carpet? If so, you might want to invest in some high quality plywood. The prices usually range form $25-$60. However, if you’re okay practicing on carpet, be our guest.
Step 3: Go grab 1 or 2 space heaters from your nearby Target. The size of your room should determine how many space heaters you actually need.
Step 4: Make sure you don’t leave the space heaters on and plugged in all the time! Turn them on 3 or 4 hours before you flow, and right after your flow, unplug them.
Step 5: If you purchase 2 space heaters, find two different circuit breakers so you don’t blow a fuse. Don’t know what we’re talking about? Read this.
Step 6: Purchase a *warm mist* humidifier or vaporizer. You can get a really nice one like this, or, A simple medium sized one like this for just $14. We recommend the cheaper option because it does release lots of warm water vapor to create that humid like feel. We’ve tried the $14 one out, it’s perfect for an at home yoga studio!
Step 7: Don’t feel like purchasing a humidifier? Boil some water in a kitchen pot, keep the lid on and bring it into your yoga studio, then uncover the lid to let out all the hot vapor. You can then leave it in the room with the lid off and slowly let the water continue to create steam. For a more humid effect, leave it uncovered in the room, and every 20 minutes take it out to re-boil the water, bring it back into the room and release the hot steam again. We know that sounds excessive, but aren’t you stuck at home…?
