Yoga and Natural Gemstones Jewelry

 Yoga comes from the Sanskrit word that means “to join” or “to unite”.  When we practice yoga, we unite with our true selves as well as the environment around us. Combining the use of natural stones with a yoga or meditation practice is a natural partnership.

Incorporating natural stones can be beneficial in many different ways.  Stones can be used in a focused way, wearing stones that assist with the particular issues or areas of life that could use improvement (health, job, love, money, etc.)

Best thing about Yoga is that you don’t have to be perfect in it. You can start from ground zero and build up your practice to levels which are both comfortable and beneficial to you. Basic poses like lotus pose and namaste pose are relaxing and paired with right gemstones, can have multitude benefits overall.

Poses like this beautiful mermaid pose take much practice to achieve, and it would be even more difficult to achieve while placing or holding stones.  Get all the benefits of using stones without hindering your practice with beautiful natural stone jewelry pieces from Sivalya.

Jewelry is a fun (and beautiful!) way to incorporate natural stones into everyday life, including yoga or meditation.  It can be with you always and there is no need to carry a stone around all day long.  Carrying a stone in a pocket can lead to the stone being forgotten and washed with the laundry, which may ruin its beauty and possibly its effectiveness.

At Sivalya we design and create collections which especially focus on showcasing gemstones so as to gain maximum benefit from their powers. Right from setting of the stones, to metals which bring out their powers at best, mostly sterling silver, brass or copper each detail is cared for. Most of our jewelry designs feature some of the most healing natural stones, like moonstone, amethyst and labradorite.

Moonstone has healing and calming qualities.  Emotionally, this stone can relieve stress, prevent overreactions and rash decisions.  It is associated with feminine energies, increasing intuition and sensitivity.  It is especially effective for protection during pregnancy, childbirth, and while traveling.  Its physical benefits include regulating the digestive, pituitary and hormonal systems.

Amethyst has a wide range of benefits, both mental and physical.  It can promote stability, serenity and common sense, making it a wonderful stone for meditation practice.  It is very good for general healing—it can help with circulatory, endocrine and immune system issues as well as pain relief.

In our stressful, sleep-deprived world, labradorite is essential.  Labradorite can help with stress, anxiety, and insomnia.  It wards off negativity while promoting more restful sleep.  It has protective and restorative qualities, keeping energy levels from being drained and keeping negative energies out.

 For a devout yogi and life enthusiast, gemstones are more than stones found in nature given for birthday and wedding celebrations. Gemstones are empowering and beautiful with inherent living energies that celebrate beauty, devotion and balance. The power of yoga and gemstones have an intrinsic connection, and that’s why every yogi should incorporate jewelry into their practice
