Building an At-Home Yoga Studio

We at IMPACT Magazine created our dream at-home yoga studio at the beautiful Shane Homes Showhome in Calgary, AB.

With a small office space (78 sq. ft.) as our starting point, we wanted to show our readers that you don’t need a massive space to create your own little slice of yoga heaven at home.

Our cozy, comfortable, fully-equipped yoga studio has all of the accessories a yogi needs for a well-supported practice, all within a few square metres. Our studio is complete with a snack and beverage station for a pre- or post-practice tea, coffee, juice, or bite of dark chocolate. We added a few succulent accents to bring nature to you, and don’t forget to light a fabulous candle or burn some stress-melting palo santo before rolling out your mat!

The beauty is in the details, and the quality of the practice materials you choose can help you take your at-home practice to the next level. Throw on your favourite online class or cue up a calming playlist and enjoy deepening your yoga practice from the comfort of your own home. Here are a few of our favourite products to help get you set up.
