The altar for this yoga studio is a modern interpretation of the Japanese temple gate. Yoga is like meditation in movement. To reflect this, the rotating slats add a dynamic element to the traditional image of the Japanese temple gate. The centerpoint of the slats is asymmetrical, making the composition more interesting. From the massage studio, situated behind the altar, one can see the silhouette of the Buddha. When a massage and a yoga session happen simultaneously, the slats can be closed for privacy.
