Texas yoga studio boasts bamboo flooring
Texas yoga studio boasts bamboo flooring Many people participate in yoga to benefit both their body and mind, and now individuals in Garland, Texas, can visit a studio that also benefits the environment.
According to The Dallas Morning News, Yoga Synergy, located approximately 30 minutes outside of Dallas, has been practicing green yoga for over four years. The studio was built using a variety of eco-friendly materials, such as paints low in volatile organic compounds and bamboo flooring.
"Yoga helps people become more mindful. Becoming more mindful of our decisions helps us become a more responsible community, which is the very essence of what being 'green' really is," Yoga Synergy owner Kristina Bauer told the news source. Bauer is also a member of the Texas Campaign for the Environment.
Environmentally conscious yoga practitioners and other like-minded individuals who are remodeling their homes can follow Yoga Synergy's lead and install bamboo flooring.
Because the plant's root system isn't harmed during harvest, bamboo is a sustainable material and a renewable resource. And, since bamboo boasts a similar aesthetic to hardwood, bamboo flooring is an elegant yet eco-friendly addition to any room.
