Yoga At Home
There are many ways to stay healthy and well now that the holiday season is getting closer. One of the best ways for your mind, body, and soul is with a Yoga at-home practice.
When it comes to exercise it can be very hard to start. They say it takes 21 days to create a new habit in your life. So over the next twenty-one days, you MUST do something every day towards your new goal.
A great resource to get started is Badass Habits: Cultivate the Awareness, Boundaries, and Daily Upgrades You Need to Make Them Stick by Jen Sincero.
If you do the daily exercises in this book you WILL see the results. It has actionable steps to help you get started today.
That said let’s get into all the yoga at home essentials you’ll need to reach your fitness goals this year.
This post is all about Yoga At Home Essentials.
Boho Beautiful Yoga At Home
If you are serious about starting to flow with an at-home yoga practice one of the best resources is Boho Beautiful. You can follow the youtube videos or join the membership.
Do what works best for you but make a decision to start and stick to it.
When you exercise daily for yourself and the health benefits that’s when you’ll finally stick to a routine. If you are just doing it for your next vacation, to get that date, to impress someone or because the summer is coming YOU WILL NOT stay consistent.
You have to get yourself to a place where you love yourself enough to set aside 15-20 minutes (to start) each day to workout just because it feels good.
Trust me… that’s the game-changer.
Also, keep in mind that it’s 80 percent diet and 20 percent exercise so if you don’t change both it will not be effective.
Here is a 14-day yoga routine you can start on youtube right now from your home.
There is also a 14-day Meditation practice that will help you stay the course. If you have never meditated be patient with yourself and give it time.
It will feel weird and woo-woo at first but it will change your life if you stick with it every day. You will get in tune with your thoughts and creativity. Another benefit is learning to stay in the present moment and just be still.
Try it and let me know how it goes after the 15 days are complete. There is an extra bonus meditation day.
If you love the program you can make the commitment to yourself and sign up for the app and monthly subscription.
This is not even an affiliate post BTW that’s how much I LOVE Boho Beautiful and all they stand for. They truly have changed my life and I am forever grateful for what Juliana and Mark have created.

1. Cork Yoga Mat
This is a must-have for any practice. I have found it important to have a nonslip mat especially when you are doing harder poses. Having stability underneath your feet is key to your yoga success.
Cork is naturally antimicrobial and provides a self-cleaning surface that reduces grime and odor. This mat has a cushiony top layer that supports hands and joints throughout every pose.

2. Mat Towel
While I don’t tend to sweat during my practice many do, especially if they are doing hot yoga or pilates. My son used to do this during the wrestling season to drop the extra pounds of water weight and a towel was definitely a necessity.
Made of nanofiber the fabric of this towel absorbs 2.3 times its weight in moisture without the bulky, nappy surface of other towel textiles. The vented silicone carry case has a clip for attaching to your bag which is great for traveling.
You’ll love this towel whether you’re going for a hike or a yoga class.
3. Water Bottle
One of my favorite crystals is my ROSE QUARTZ STONE NECKLACE from Boho Beautiful. It has been out of stock for some time now but you can purchase a similar one from ALEX AND ANI.
Having the crystal inside your water bottle during your yoga practice will be a constant reminder to love yourself because that is the meaning of this crystal.
Rose Quartz purifies and opens the heart chakra to unconditional love and positive energy, making it one of the most important gemstones for healing. It promotes love, self-love, friendship, deep inner healing, and feelings of peace. This crystal dispels negativity and protects against environmental pollution, replacing it with loving vibes. It encourages self-forgiveness and acceptance invoking self-trust and self-worth.
4. Yoga Blocks
Yoga blocks are great for stability and balance. They’ll help you with optimal alignment, deeper poses, and increased strength.
Adding yoga blocks to your practice also helps to extend, support, and deepen your stretches. The ultimate goal is to increase your range of motion and these blocks will do just that.
Choose between four color options when placing your order. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced yogi these blocks will take your practice to the next level.
5. Yoga Ambiance Smudge Kit
Smudging is a way of clearing negative energy from your space. Depending on who used the space before and for what you’ll want to clear the air of negative energy. The goal is to welcome only positive energy and good vibes.
Burning sage is one of the oldest and purest methods of cleansing a person, group of people, or space to get rid of unwanted spirits.
You’ll want to do this in your space to set the intentions of your yoga and meditation practice.
Steps to Smudging Your Space
- Clean your space (this helps the sage travel better)
- Turn off all electronics (tv, radio, and you can silence your phone)
- Open a door and or window so the negative energy leaves your home
- Set an intention before you begin
- Light the sage and keep a vessel or small plate underneath
- Start at your front door and walk counter-clockwise around your space
- Start in the lowest part of your home and work your way up
- Fan the smoke using a feather as you move through your space
- Focus on corners as they tend to hold toxic negative energy
- After you are done light a candle and go through your space to bring in positive energy
As you walk through your space you want to ask the negative energy to leave. You can create your own mantra but this is what I like to say:
“Any energy that is negative and not of my greatest good get the [email protected]*k out with love, you are not welcome to stay here. Please leave out the open door and window.”
Change that up to fit your own needs. It’s meant to give you an idea of what to say.
6. Yoga Inspiration
I was very tempted to put the inhale-exhale wall decal we have in the Airbnb but I just felt this was more appropriate.
So often we hold onto resentment and anger from the past when we truly just need to let that [email protected] go. Realizing that I can ONLY change myself has been a game-changer in my life and helped me let go of the need to control.
Definitely a work in progress but something I’m aware of on a daily basis.
7. Meditation Pillow
There are six colors available in this meditation pillow. The grey option shown is perfect for a calm zen space. If pastels are more your jam choose from the purple, blue, or sage colorway.
A comfy meditation pillow will help you get into that zen zone as you meditate. If you are like me and meditate twice a day trust me this is a necessity.
A meditation practice along with journaling will help clear your mind and make you less reactive. It’s a game-changer if you make it part of your daily routine.
8. Rose Quartz Pendant Healing Crystals
Wearing crystals around your neck is a constant reminder to breathe and protect your energy at all costs. This is something I have been working on.
My rose quartz pendant necklace is from Boho Beautiful but this one from Amazon has the same vibe. Anytime you are feeling off or need love just grasp the crystal and allow the energy to calm you.
Trust me it works!
9. Essential Oil Diffuser
This will help create a calm peaceful environment to flow during your practice. It can run for 18 hrs so it’s great for your yoga studio, bedroom, or living room.
Choose from the many essential oils in the set below depending on the vibe you’re after.
10. Essential Oil Set
Essential oils are perfect for diffuser, humidifier, freshener, massage, bath, skin and hair care, or adding into lotion and shampoo.
These oils are fabulous for putting you in a good mood and creating an atmosphere in your home.
11. Recycled Wetsuits Yoga Mat
Inspired by the California lifestyle, this yoga mat is made from recycled neoprene wetsuits. Personally, I love a sustainable design that helps protect our environment.
If the cork is not your jam then go for this yoga mat instead.
12. Himalayan Salt Lamp
Crafted from 100% natural salt this is a great way to add good energy to your yoga studio at home.
When you purchase this please be sure to add a small plate underneath because the moisture from the salt rock will damage your furniture. The lamp is perfect to use as a nightlight as well as good energy.
13. Yoga Mat Cleaner
Show your yoga mat some love. Asutra’s Yoga Mat Detox allows you to clean and refresh your mats and props with no slippery residue.
14. Mid Century Plant Stand with Pot
Use this pot stand for your favorite plant. Perfect to add in the corner of your workout space.
15. Buddha Head Statue Essential Oil
This essential oil decoration is perfect for your Yoga or Meditation Room. Add the oils from above to create a zen vibe in your home.
16. Double Roller Mini
Roll out any areas that may be sore after your workout with this stylish roller.
17. Hidden Crystal Candle
This candle contains crystals associated with self-love. By now you know I’m a lover of healing crystals.
They’re a powerful tool for clearing away any negative toxic juju.
18. Reiki Healing Crystals 7 Chakra Gemstones
This will help you attract wealth and prosperity, success, and all good things while you work out in your Yoga Studio.
19. Chakras Meditation Decor
Learn to understand your chakras with this zen wall decor. This is the perfect decor for your yoga at-home studio.
For more information on the seven chakras head to A Beginner’s Guide To The 7 Chakras.
20. Divine Rainbow Chakra Ring
Sparkling gemstones represent the seven chakras in this silver ring. This is great for yourself or to give as a gift.
21. Yoga Wheel
This is on my holiday list this year for sure!
A yoga wheel is designed to help open the chest, shoulders, back, and hip flexors in the most beautiful way. It enhances your poses by achieving deeper stretches, smoother backbends, and loosens tight muscles.
Sounds amazing right!?
22. Serenity Stone Floor Pillows
Use these plushy “stone” pillows as yoga props or as a nature-inspired floor cushion. Love that they look like a big stone rather than just an ordinary pillow.
Image yourself sitting on a rock by a stream as you meditate and calm your mind. These pillows will make any space a little more serene.
They’re also a great gift for your yogi friends.
23. Artificial Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree
Bring the outdoors in by adding greenery to your at-home yoga studio. This plant is artificial but you can also add the real deal.
There are many benefits to adding greenery into your space including the following:
- Reduce stress
- Increase productivity
- Reduce sickness
- Make spaces more attractive
- Clean the air
- Reduce fatigue and headaches
- Help to reduce noise levels
- Boost creativity
- Reduce blood pressure
24. Seagrass Basket with Handles
This is the perfect basket to hold your essentials, towels, or to use as the base of your plant.
25. Yoga Towel
Here is another yoga towel to add to your at-home yoga studio. I love the fun print in this trendy yoga towel.
If you like a pop of color in your space this towel is for you.
26. Inhale Exhale Art Wall Decal
Also, remember your breath will help you get through those challenging poses. We have this exact decal in our Airbnb bedroom and it’s fabulous!
27. Release and Recover Ball Set
Recover and treat your sore muscles with these recovery balls.
28. Spiritual Yoga Quote Print
Set the vibe of your space with zen inspiration.
The translation reads “Namaste: I honor the place in you in which the entire universe dwells. I honor the place in you which is of love, light, peace, and joy. When you are in that place in you, and I am in that place in me, we are one.”
29. Yogi Spirit Candle
This yoga-inspired candle reveals a meditating cast iron sculpture as the wax around it melts away.
30. Yoga Bolster
Round cotton bolsters provide perfect support for many yoga postures. You’ll find that they’re firm enough to provide full support, yet soft enough to be super comfortable.
31. Yoga Strap/Stretch Bands
This strap will help you increase your flexibility as you stretch so you can get further each day.
That’s a wrap, my friends! I hope this gave you ideas and inspiration to design your at-home yoga studio today. As I mentioned above the way to see results is to establish a regular practice that you maintain consistency.
Have a great day full of Unicorns and Rainbows.
