Thanks to the ability to stream yoga classes, pilates classes, and other workouts online, more and more people are exercising and meditating in the comfort of their own homes. What this means? There's an increasing need to make your bedroom, den, or backyard deck function as an energizing, health-enhancing exercise zone or mindful meditation and yoga oasis.
As the founder of Studio 26, an eco-friendly, urban fitness and wellness oasis located in New York City, I have the pleasure of witnessing the transformation and health benefits a supportive space can provide for the most stressed out of all urban dwellers: New Yorkers.
A negative space is an assault on the senses that can make your body shut down despite serious, strenuous efforts to improve it. So take these simple steps that, with a little help from nature, smart design, and cleaner, better-smelling air, make for a healthier yoga and workout space. As an added bonus, your workouts—yoga or otherwise—will drastically improve.
