Create a meditation space


It takes only a few basic elements to create a peaceful zen space for yoga, meditating and relaxation.

Find a quiet space, add comfortable cushions or a yoga mat, candles, a source of natural light and ideally, a collection of your favourite things to focus your mind. Experiment with scents and essential oils, personally, I like to burn sage or incense. Add ambient sounds, download the sounds of flowing water or relaxing music and include natural elements like pebbles, small rocks, flowers and plants.

The space doesn’t need to be lavish, keep out the clutter and keep it simple. Design the space to meet your own particular needs and create a sanctuary.
