If you are tired of moving the coffee table and cleaning up toys every time you want to do yoga, maybe it is time to create your own private studio. You can still go to your Saturday morning Bikram yoga class, but at least when you practice at home; you will be able to do it somewhere that offers the right atmosphere. If you have a spare room, basement (with a fairly high ceiling), or even an extra-large garage that you can section off, you can easily make your own studio.
Soothing Color - That tangerine paint may seem like a great idea, but the blush will likely wear away after a few practices. Opt for a soothing shade of green, blue, or purple, or stick with shades of wheat and sand. Save the tangerine or other bold colors for the Zumba room you are creating next.

Indoor Waterfalls - A water element is a must-have in a personal yoga studio. It's sound and visual display will create a soothing environment. Plus, it will clean the air and block noises from the neighborhood or the TV playing in your teenager's bedroom. You will really appreciate this if you like to enjoy a little meditation after your yoga practice.
Flat Screen TV - If your spare room is large enough then you could certainly put a TV stand in there against a wall. Otherwise, a flat screen can get mounted on the wall, which will give you more floor space to work with, since you won't need a stand. If you are an advanced yogi and do not follow along with instructional videos, then you may just want a docking station for your iPod or MP3 player.
Mirrors - Ideally, you will have at least one full wall of mirrors. Being able to see your form is every helpful in making sure you reap the full effects of every pose.
Curtains - Unless you live out in the country with no neighbors, you probably do not want your yoga practice on display for the entire neighborhood to see. Besides, you don’t want to be blinded by the sun bouncing off the mirror either.
Yoga and Meditation Accessories - You may already have a lot of things on this list, but if not, you may want to consider adding mats, blocks, straps, bolsters, eye pillows, microfiber towels, incense, zabuton, jellies, and stability balls.
