Namaste Oasis: Your Yoga-spired Garden Sanctuary

Decking area with outdoor shower, surrounded by nature

Calling all fellow Yogis! That tranquil space for you to unravel yourself, stretch, breath and allow nature to wash over you may be closer than you think.

We may not look at our garden and envision an oasis, but any area, big or small, can be transformed into the best suited area to meet your needs. When we move into our homes we make grand plans to nest and decorate. Why not treat your outdoors space the same? 

A place where the art of nature, your mind, body and soul can be harmonised. 

Cultivate your own oasis

Yoga itself is very personal, it has many meanings to people all around the world. Each practice is different. One aspect stays firmly rooted within the practice; Nature and our connection to it. 

When designing a personal oasis in your garden, every element of your surroundings can be carefully curated to evoke senses of serenity and calm. Grasses gently sway in the breeze, fresh lavender fills the air and the sound of trickling water mixes with the buzzing of bees. This ensures that the moment you step out of your home and into your garden, you are transported to a safe space to switch off and unwind. 

During the design process we can establish the style that suits you. From Bali-inspired tropics of exotic planting to sleek Japanese-inspired zen havens.  Creating completely unique landscapes filled with blends of culture, senses and style, our in-house landscaping team ensure that every design is tailored around your preferences. 

Roll out and immerse yourself

At the heart of your Namaste Oasis lies a dedicated yoga space, nestled amidst verdant foliage and bathed in natural sunlight. Here, you can roll out your mat and immerse yourself in the ancient practice of yoga. Whether you’re a seasoned yogi or just beginning your journey, this tranquil setting provides the perfect backdrop for finding balance and connection.

Options are endless for the perfect place for you. Imagine yourself on a pontoon overlooking lily pads and lotus flowers; besides being the name of a popular yoga pose, the lotus flower is considered a symbol of (re)birth, self-realisation and spiritual enlightenment.

Maybe you want to be surrounded by a canopy of trees or in a secret spot offering privacy and seclusion. Every space can be designed with your taste and preferences aligned. 

Setting the scene of sanctuary

Meandering pathways can be created to lead you to and from your yoga space. Surrounded by lush greenery and vibrant blooms. Why not have different themed areas to tie into yoga practices?; pockets of hidden bliss. Paths can lead to focal points to lay your yoga mat down or statues or sculptures that help centre you. Areas designed around chakras, mandalas or other spiritual symbols that speak to you. 

Structures can offer further sanctuary from the elements, they can also be used to encourage climbers such as jasmine to offer sweet flora scents. Imagine a waterfall of wisteria flourishing in the summer sun. What better drishti ‘focused gaze’ than one of nature. Close your eyes and listen to the soothing sound of it flowing in the gentle breeze.

Nourishing the body

In addition, your Namaste Oasis can cater to the physical senses, a bounty of fresh fruits supplying you with all the nutrients for a breakfast bowl. Calm and soothe your soul with tea infused with chamomile, mint and rosemary. Create the perfect post-yoga poke bowl, bursting with root flavours of carrots, broccoli, spring onions, cabbage and peas. A kitchen garden at your fingertips offers further wellbeing for both your body and mind. This area can also be visually beautiful, the design can continue to use aspects of your yoga flow. 

Sustainability is important to consider too. Curated to minimise environmental impact while maximising freshness and flavour. By growing a diverse array of herbs, fruits and vegetables right on our doorstep, we reduce reliance on transported produce, cut down on packaging waste and nurture a healthy ecosystem. With a commitment to organic practices and responsible water usage, a kitchen garden can not only sustain culinary needs but also nurtures the earth.

From zero to zen

Inspired to cultivate your own yoga-spired garden sanctuary? We can take you step by step, flowing through the project like a sun-salutation!  to your dream garden. Let our expert in-house landscaping team and garden designers create and craft walkways of graceful ferns, colourful blooms and fragrant flora, adorned with natural elements such as stone, wood, and water features.

Now sit back, relax and enjoy. 

Meditation has never been easier now you have a peaceful oasis. Turn off from the world outside, no electronics, no hustle and bustle. Just you and the nature surrounding you. Enhance the area further by adding twinkling lights that wrap around trees where a cosy hammock awaits you, scattered candles, maybe a bespoke ‘Namaste’ sign. The key is to create a space that speaks to your heart and nourishes your soul, inviting you to return again and again to find peace and renewal. 

Your personal Namaste Oasis is more than just a garden – it’s a sanctuary for the senses, a haven for the soul and a reminder of the beauty and abundance of the natural world. So why not embark on your own journey to create a yoga-inspired garden sanctuary of your own? Namaste.
