Yoga Centre turned attractive with dynamic LED lighting solutions from Lamps One. LEDs have been installed in the centre while keeping the meaning of Yoga which is ‘union’ intact.
Lighting has been designed as a transitional element that guides the user from the hectic and busy outer world to an inner atmosphere of warmth and serenity, favourable to the practice of yoga.
An important feature in this project is that all the lighting is connected through a standard communication protocol based on Bluetooth Low Energy. This enables both yoga teachers and administrators to control each point of light easily with the touch of a button using any mobile devices.
This facilitates the possibility of switching the lights on or off, raise or lower levels, select different colour temperatures (2700-6500 K) or select between different types of preset scenes or create their scenes, even remotely (outside the facilities).
The access to the centre is a first stage in the transition, with slightly higher lighting levels, neutral shades (3000 K) and open optics (58º) providing a degree of consistency in the access and reception counter, where adequate working lighting is kept.
From here, it is possible to access an intermediate space, before the Yoga room, where the lockers and a small waiting room are located. In this area, the goal is to create an environment that emotionally prepares the user for the practice and lets them disconnect from their routine while connecting with themselves.
For this purpose, the lighting in this environment becomes dimmer and warmer (2700 K) with a strong “scenic” component, using accent lighting with highly concentrated light beams (19º) to achieve this effect, as well as great visual comfort, which keeps the point of light hidden from direct view thanks to its shielding angle.
These areas are visually connected and the number of different luminaires has been reduced to only three families (Moody, Hance, and Stormbell) to achieve diverse lighting effects through the optics and accessories. Moreover, Yoga practice room, the main space, is installed with linear structures that merge into the room ceiling, parallel to the structures where “aerial Yoga” is practised.
