For many people, yoga is not just a sport but a philosophy. It is similar with yoga jewelry : Here, not only the optics is in focus, because his wearer often has a higher, spiritual goal in mind . The jewel should, for example, help with meditation or remind of self-love.

Especially crystals are often used to purify or strengthen certain chakras as well as to ward off certain energies. The form in which this happens is quite different. As with other jewelry areas, there are also rings, necklaces, bracelets and earrings in the yoga jewelry.

There are these variants

1. Malas

Probably the best-known jewelery worn by yogins and yogis alike is Malas. The prayer beads used in Hinduism and Buddhism traditionally consist of 108 beads and a larger accessory bead, often made of wood or stones. More than other yoga jewelry, Malas are primarily intended for meditating on mantras . Pearl by pearl, the mantra is repeated until the meditator returns to the top of the chain.

Malas can be provided with all sorts of stones and symbols and thus serve as a reminder of a project or an inner strength in addition to the traditional use.

4. Bracelets

There are also bracelets in the field of yoga jewelry in many different styles and forms.

Others prefer chakra bracelets, ie ribbons in the individual chakra colors and provided with the special symbol. The idea: If a particular chakra - the human energy centers in yoga teaching - is blocked, special jewelery can help to solve the blockage . The traditional mala is often used as a bracelet or even worn in a shorter - then not traditionally 108 pearls - version. And, as in the case of necklaces, rings and earrings, the bracelet assortment in yoga jewelery also shows various symbols from yoga .

Also very popular are all sorts of crystals and gems . They are hung on chains or entire chains made of it - sometimes even to whole Malas - worn as a stone on rings or earrings as well as as part of one or even as a whole bracelet around the wrist.

Each individual stone has its own meaning in addition to its own look and promotes certain energies . For example, crystals are popular for their own star sign or those that are assigned to certain chakras and strengthen them.
