Yoga is an activity that teaches spiritual, mental and physical discipline. Yoga studios are becoming ever more popular around the country as a place for people to exercise and find peace of mind. Unfortunately yoga studios often require constant cleaning to ensure a healthy germ free environment. The New York Times did a study linking many bacterial, fungal and viral infections to unclean yoga facilities. Cleaning and maintenance are important for any type of building, but for recreational facilities such as yoga studios, providing a clean healthy environment is important for your customers.
Yoga unlike other forms of exercise takes place on the floor and mats in particular. So priority number one is to make sure that your floor space and yoga mats are cleaned very frequently. We recommend having your floors professionally cleaned and washed on a regular basis. This way it does not become you or your employee’s duty to wash the floors. Many people who practice yoga on a regular basis use their own mats so they don’t have to share communal yoga equipment. Yoga mats can be cleaned with a machine wash and a light detergent, but communal yoga mats also need to be disinfected after every use. We recommend mixing vinegar, water and essential oil in a spray bottle to create a green cleaning disinfectant. Collecting communal yoga mats and then spraying them after each session will keep your yoga mats clean for the next user. Maintaining a clean floor space along with clean yoga mats will not only make your yoga studio more appealing to its customers it will provide a healthier environment for them to exercise.
A yoga studio should be a place for meditation and relaxation, thus ambient lighting is essential. Cleaning your windows regularly is great way to increase the amount of sunlight that enters your building. It’s a fact that people generally feel happier and more energized when it is sunny outside as opposed to cloudy or rainy weather. The same idea applies to your yoga studio. The extra sunlight will create more positive attitudes while people practice their yoga. Clean windows will also make your yoga studio look more appealing from the outside. People who are driving or walking by your business only have a small window of time to look at your yoga studio and get their first impressions. Overall window cleaning is a great way to add ambient lighting to your yoga studio and make it look more appealing to those passing by.
Yoga should take place in clean and relaxing environment so you can exercise and achieve peace of mind. Maintaining a clean floor space and keeping your mats bacteria free will not only provide a better yoga experience, but a healthier and cleaner one as well. Also by keeping your windows clean you will be adding ambient lighting to your studio which will make your customers have a more enjoyable experience and attract more customers.
