Herbal Organic Yoga Mats

 

Yoga as commonly understood, is performed on highly toxic, chemically infused materials that are largely counter-productive to the very essence of yoga.

 

These eco friendly ayurvedic yoga roll-able mats are made of organic cotton (certified), hand loomed and infused with natural, rejuvenating ayurveda herbs that are not only non toxic but beneficial for the overall well-being of the individual. They are also infused with natural rubber to ensure an anti-skid base.

 

Hand made by artisans under supervision of practitioners of ayurveda, these yoga mats are dyed in natural herbs such as turmeric, holy basil, red sandalwood, vetiver etc. and are known for their amazing healing properties.

In fact, ayurveda, the science of holistic herbal healing claims that almost 800 grams of toxic chemicals are absorbed by our bodies in a year, due to our exposure to machine made chemically dyed clothing and other materials that our body comes into contact with.

 

The term Ayurveda derived from its Sanskrit root ‘ayur’ (life) and ‘ved’ (knowledge) is the oldest surviving comprehensive medical system in the world with its origins going back some 5000 years. Scripted over a 1000 years ago, the principal compendium Atharvaveda and thereafter Astanga Hridayam along with the Chakra Samhita (internal medicine) and Sushruta Samhita (surgery) form the backbone towards the current practices of its application.

 

This traditional Hindu system of medicine (all natural) is based on the fundamentals of balance in bodily systems through diet regulation, herbal treatment and yogic breathing. It is therefore not simply a health care system, but a form of lifestyle adopted to maintain perfect balance and harmony within human existence.

 

Based on the premise that life represents a cohesive presence of the mind (mana), body (sharira), soul (atma) and senses (indriya) all of which revolve around the 5 elements (air, water, fire, earth and ether) that makeup the constitution of every individual, ayurveda offers an unique blend of science and philosophy that balances the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual components, necessary for holistic health.
