Choosing the Right Flooring for your Yoga Studio

Designing your first (or second or third) yoga studio can be the most exciting, challenging and rewarding experience all wrapped up into one. From layout and studio floors to wall colors, general decor and so much more, the list of things to decide on can seem endless.

Luckily, we know a thing or two about bringing the design of a space together into one cohesive environment. Plus, we’re especially handy when it comes time to determine which flooring option is ideal for your studio space.

Flooring for your Style(s) of Practice

Different styles of yoga may require different flooring, so it’s important for you to determine the types of styles your studio will be used for before you pick out flooring.

One big example of this is hot yoga. Due to the increased temperature levels associated with this style, non-temperature-stable flooring options like wood or bamboo may not be an option for your studio. Additionally, some flooring options may not be able to withstand the water created by increased humidity levels associated with hot yoga.

Flooring with Durability in Mind

Everyone practices yoga in their own unique way. That’s especially true at a studio, where you can’t control the intensity of which someone is changing positions. So, when your studio offers sessions in everything from Bikram to Aerial Yoga, Yogalates and more, it’s important to choose a flooring that will stand up to the variation from class to class.

Flooring that Meets Safety Concerns

Safety is usually a cause for concern when determining the flooring option you choose for your studio. But it doesn’t have to be. When you choose a yoga studio flooring option that is easy on muscles, joints and is slip-resistant, the yogis practicing in your space will be able to focus more on breathing, posture and maintaining various poses.
