Meditation and yoga space

As I prepare for YTT (yoga teacher training) I am steadily marking things off my list to do. I am building a yoga wardrobe so that when I am attending class 6 days a week from Jan to March, I have enough to get me through without constant washing and with enough variety to keep me from being hugely bored. I have all my books ordered. I got a new gym bag to make schlepping all my books and mat and other items to and fro easier.

Finally, I need to have a space in the house to meditate and do yoga where I can shut a door and be left to it. The easiest option was to set something up in our bedroom. We have a decent amount of space free in there and already had a leftover media console that I could appropriate.

Here is where it stands right now.

The art is from Etsy. A glass, metallic, dish from Target clearance holds meditation stones. I have two Buddhas (one large, one small) I have a rock I brought back from Sedona. A candle. An incense holder. The bottom part of the console holds my YTT books and has a space to hold incense, matches, candles and the eventual meditation cushion or other props I have on my list.

I really wanted something chakra based in the space since that practice speaks to me.

I found this outrageously beautiful print but it is also outrageously outside of my budget for this space. WHOMP WHOMP.

So instead I went with this handmade chakra chain

which I ordered online and was able to get MUCH cheaper from here vs Etsy (same artist)

Willy is going to fix the cable that is running to the TV, since it’s too short and bugs the crap out of me.

I intend on rounding out the space with a vintage kilim rug

(she has another cactus piece also, so really it could be either, I love them both!)

I would also love my own bolster, blocks and blankets to do restorative poses at home.

There is still some rearranging that needs to happen before the space is completely yoga ready but it’s nice to get things started.
