The story behind the designs:
Chakra Think of the chakras as wheels that spin simultaneously to create a combination of energy and life force-from our grounded foundation to our spiritual expression and understanding. There are seven, representing different energies and needs. The more balanced we can be in our lives, we can experience a sense of fullness-emotional, mental and physical; mind, body and soul. This balance manifests in our relationships, conversations, actions, goals and interests. In this design, we’ve aligned our chakras beside our yogi, emerging from her lotus blossom-which grows grounded in the earth, and reaches upwards seeking the light.
Mandala The word Mandala is loosely translated as “circle” and is said to represent the universe surrounding us. The circle is also a universal representation of infinity, and the endless cycle of nature and energy. Mandalas come in an innumerable variety of designs, patterns and colors, but are always designed to give visual balance. During yoga practice, this visual balance may help you stay focused and present. Our My Yoga Essentials mandala is designed to incorporate the seven chakras in concentric circles, or wheels. After all, the word chakra means wheel, each of which, in yogic symbolism, represent the spinning energy centers of our being. The chakra symbols each have their own color, name, location, mantra and element. Read the more about the “chakras” in the tab below and see if you can recognize them in our mandala! You may even want to count the outer “petals” of each ring. How did we do?
Namaste I love this word! In traditional Hindu, and throughout much of the Indian sub-continent It is used both for a respectful greeting and farewell.
It can be interpreted as meaning "I honor the place in you that is love, light and joy." It is an expression of humility as well as a means of recognizing our "sameness" with one another. It is selfless, literally having a root that means "not I", telling us to let go of self importance.
Breathe The word is so powerful and relevant right now. Breathing is the first thing we do when we enter this world, and the last thing we do when we leave it. In yoga, we call it "prana", or life force. This word can conjure up feelings of peace and personal power as readily as it can conjure up the fear of illness or the tragedy of injustice and inequality right in our home communities. Whatever feelings the word "breathe" conjures for you, we all breathe the same air. Our breath can calm the storms that loom for each of us personally and collectively. Together we can light the way to a future that recognizes and respects our own, as well as the unique contributions, colorful expressions and beliefs of all our neighbors.
Linen Mat Product Information:
We are proud to offer durable and eco-friendly products. They start with a base of natural rubber from the best Hevea rubber trees. The rubber is collected (tapped) in a sustainable manner, not harming the trees and allowing them to mature and continue to produce the milky latex within the latex vessels in the bark. While natural rubber (latex) may cause allergic reactions for some (Try our TPE mats as an alternative!), rubber is non-toxic, non-slip/skid, waterproof, stain resistant, durable, has excellent flexibility and cushioning, and is recyclable. And because natural rubber is sticky when heated, our manufacturing process takes advantage of this physical feature to combine many types of surface layers WITHOUT the use of chemical adhesives.
For our Hemp Linen top layer, we use a blend of hemp and linen (called flax), which are both sustainable and renewable. These fibers are strong and smooth but become softer and more supple with use. These fibers absorb moisture, are cool in summer and warming in winter, have antibacterial properties, are insect resistant, are biodegradable and do not fade.
At 5 mm thick, our linen topped rubber mats have a bit of “give” for comfort but are dense enough to ground and stabilize you during your practice. These mats roll out and stay flat-no bunching or curling.
Our mats contain zero PVC’s or harmful chemicals and are 100% recyclable.
