Turn Your Garage Into a Yoga Retreat

Many homeowners look for ways to increase their living space without a lot of additional expense. If you have an attached garage, you are in luck. There are many ways you can use your garage, including as a yoga retreat. The team here at Neighborhood Garage Door Repair of Tulsa has a few ideas to help you get started.

1. Find a Comfortable Floor Solution

Sure, you’ll use a yoga mat, but you’ll likely want more padding than that. You can lay down area rugs or rubber tiles as an additional cushion on the floor. Concrete floors are cold in the winter and generally hard on the body.

2. Paint the Walls

If you have parked in your garage routinely, then the walls are likely dingy or dirty. Spruce up the room by painting the walls with a color that relaxes you. You might consider going with a yellow color or a neutral shade. Since most garages don’t have much natural light, you won’t want to go with a dark color.

3. Come up With a Heat and Air Solution

There are several things you can do to create a heat and air solution for your space. Here are a few ideas.

Heat:

  • Space heaters
  • Floorboard heating
  • Run the HVAC from the house into the garage

Ac:

  • Window unit
  • Run the HVAC from the house into the garage
  • Install an exhaust fan and circulate the air with floor fans

We recommend that before you run the HVAC vents from the house into your garage, that you check with a professional. Depending on the unit you have, it may not have the capacity to heat or cool your extra room.

4. Insulate Your Garage and Door

In order to keep the air regulated in your garage, you’ll need to make sure it is insulated. That will include the garage door as well. If you can see light through the door, then it needs weather stripping. You should look at the condition of the existing weather stripping to determine if it is cracked. This might need to be changed out.

5. Create Ambience

To make the environment relaxing, you’ll need to install low lighting or set up lamps in the garage. Work to make the room inviting and not distracting. This is particularly important if you spend time meditating while you do yoga.

6. Set up Your Yoga Gear

Make a space on your floor to set up your yoga mat and get all of your gear together. You’ll need a place for towels, blocks, or cushions you need for your session. Come up with a storage solution that keeps the gear out of the way when it is not in use.

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
