Decorate like a Yoga Studio: Our Top 7 Yoga Decorations

yoga decorations

When you walk into a yoga studio or home yoga room, what is that special something that evokes the feeling of “zen”? Is it the painting on the wall? The dim glowing salt lamps? The little Buddha statue in the corner?

After visiting yoga studios all over the country, I’ve noticed that yoga decorations can make or break the ambiance of a yoga room. Tacky statues or clashing colors can quickly become a distraction during asana practice. On the other hand, special details like a chakra tapestry quickly transform a room for a dreamy vibe and rewarding yoga experience. 

Decor is everything when it comes to designing a relaxing and inspiring yoga space. We’ve reviewed the top yoga decorations to help you decide what decor elements will be best for your studio or home yoga room.

Zen Yoga Decorations

#1. Best Yoga Tapestry – Lahasbja Chakra Tapestry

Lahasbja Seven Chakra Tapestry Yoga Meditation Tapestry Wall Hanging Colorful Mandala Wall Tapestry Indian Chakra Tapestries Decoration for Studio Room

Have you ever noticed what a huge difference a wall hanging makes on the ambiance of a room? If you don’t want to invest in expensive artwork or paint jobs, this vibrant rainbow tapestry can quickly transform a yoga room by covering bare or unsightly walls. It comes in 3 sizes and can also be used as a mat, blanket, curtain, or throw. The chakra symbols are accurately represented and beautifully complimented by a psychedelic mandala background. 

Pros: The Lahasbja tapestry is very affordable, colorful, and versatile. 

Cons: The tapestry cannot be machine washed. It could also be potentially distracting during a deep yoga practice.

#2. Best Yoga Statue – Alpine 15” Tall Meditating Buddha Statue 

Trinkets and statues are the perfect accents for any yoga space. This meditating Budhha statue is calming and aesthetically pleasing. It is a large enough size to bring a renewed energy to a yoga room, studio, or meditation altar. 

The Buddha is a universally recognized symbol of inner peace and zen. You can add floral, leaf, or crystal accents surrounding the statue as a center-piece to your yoga decorations. Focus on the tranquility of the statue for the direction of your drishti (yogic gaze) during balance poses, or when practicing trataka yogic gazing. 

Pros: Durable, weather-resistant, light weight, beautiful sheen, 15” tall 

Cons: Made of polyresin plastic (not real stone), slightly high price

#3. Best Essential Oil Diffuser – Tenswall Essential Oil Diffuser

Himalayan Glow 1002 Crystal, 8-11 Lbs, Salt Lamp

Scent is a powerful grounding force that brings all of our senses into the present moment. You may have noticed the signature smell of most yoga studios comes from essential oil diffusers. The Tenswall Diffuser comes in three colors (black, dark brown, and light brown) and offers a diversity of functions. It acts as a humidifier when you don’t want to use essential oils. It also has a timer and 7 different dim or bright colors to change up the lighting in your yoga room. 

Pros: This diffuser has silent operation and an auto-off feature. It is the perfect aesthetically pleasing yoga decoration that functions as a source of both light and scent.

Cons: Essential oils are not included and it also requires a nearby plug. 

#4. Best Yoga LIghting – Himalayan Glow Salt Lamp

Himalayan Glow 1002 Crystal, 8-11 Lbs, Salt Lamp

Himalayan salt has been used since ancient times to purify and clean indoor air. This lamp has a warm dimmable light with a primordial glow to add a calm ambiance to your yoga room. The included 15 watt bulb gently heats the salt to release ions into the air. It is also an extraordinarily beautiful yoga decoration to use as both a statue and lighting accent. 

Pros: The Himalayan Glow salt lamp comes on a rot-resistant neem base with certified fire-proof dimmer and cord assembly. You can adjust the brightness of the lamp to fit your practice and easily change the bulb (though it lasts many years before burning out). The salt also neutralizes odors and purifies the air.

Cons: Every lamp is a slightly different color due to the natural sourcing of the salt. It also requires a nearby plug and is slightly heavy. 

#5. Best Yoga Poster – The Mindful Word Yoga Poses Poster

The Mindful Word Yoga Poses Poster (24x36 Inches) - Yoga Poster with 62 Beginner - Int. Asanas/Positions/Stretches - Printed on 100% Recycled Paper - Postures in English & Sanskrit (Rolled/Tube)

I’ve noticed that many yoga studios have posters that are both educational and decorative. This Mindful Word poster includes 62 different asanas with both the English and Sanskrit names. The poses are grouped by body position and surrounded by floral and mandala designs. This poster is the perfect yoga decoration 

Pros: The poster is fairly large (24 x 36”) to cover a portion of a wall in your yoga room. The canvas-like material is rip-resistant, durable, and easy to hang. It is a practical reference and attractive yoga decoration to remind you of yoga poses and help you learn the Sanskrit names.

Cons: It is a plastic material designed to look like canvas.

#6. Best Yoga Mat Basket – Goodpick Jute Rope Storage Basket

Goodpick Cotton Rope Storage Basket- Jute Basket Woven Planter Basket Rope Laundry Basket with Handles for Toys, Blanket and Pot Plant Cover, 16.0' x15.0' x12.6'

Baskets are the best organizational yoga decorations because they are both functional and pretty. This natural cotton and jute basket is soft, chemical-free, and the perfect size for a yoga mat or blanket. It can also be used as a planter to add foliage accents to your yoga studio.

Pros: This basket is sturdy, naturally beautiful, and multi-functional. 

Cons: It arrives flattened, but can easily be reshaped. 

#7. Best Meditation Cushion – Florensi Buckwheat Meditation Cushion

Florensi Meditation Cushion (16'x16'x5'), Large Velvet Meditation Pillow, Premium Yoga Pillow for Women and Men, Yoga Cushion, Meditation Pillows for Sitting on Floor, Buckwheat Meditation Cushions

A firm, comfortable cushion is a must for beginning and ending a yoga practice. This “zafu”, or round meditation cushion, is made with natural buckwheat hulls and comes in 7 different pastel colors. It is super supportive for the back, encouraging good posture during and after your asana practice. It also has a mandala design to add a zen flair to your yoga decorations. 

Pros: The Florensi meditation cushion is modeled after traditional zen cushions with a mandala lotus flower and 7 color options. It includes a cover, pouch cushion, and an extra 1” foam pillow. It also functions as the perfect floor seating for other activities like reading or working on a laptop.

Cons: This cushion is quite firm and uncomfortable for some people. It won’t be the perfect size for all body types.
