Which is the best floors for a Yoga Studio?

Yoga is a group of physical, mental, and spiritual practices or disciplines which originated in ancient India. There is a broad variety of Yoga schools, practices, and goals in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism. Among the most well-known types of yoga are Hatha yoga and Rāja yoga. (source: wikipedia)

Yoga studios are meant to be a relaxing and harmonic environment. Beautiful historic plank flooring can create a warm, welcoming reception space.

As yoga increases its popularity over the years, studios are rising everywhere, and even big gyms are adding yoga classes to their current schedules. Homeowners are also looking to create small yoga workout rooms in their own house.

If you plan to build a yoga studio whether at home or as a business, you’re probably wondering what flooring is best for a yoga studio?

There are many flooring options available, but when it comes to yoga, there are three musts that need to be met:

  1. Floor Hardness (flexible enough for comfort, but robust enough to keep balance and perform correctly)
  2. Water Resistance (for sweat, water bottle, and hot yoga)
  3. Floor cleanliness (ability to mop and sweep fast in between classes)

Hardwood is optimal in yoga studio design.

While there are other decent choices for yoga flooring like laminate, cork, or bamboo, you should always avoid concrete, vinyl, marble, and especially carpet. Our best recommendation still is to look into hardwood floors. But please be sure to maintain the humidity levels in the studio. Excessive humidity, together with drastic temperature changes causes woods to expand and retract because of the moisture absorption.
