5 Crystals For an Incredible Yoga Practice

5 Crystals For an Incredible Yoga Practice

Are you falling in love with crystals and stones? Are you gaining more perspective with them and embracing that people might not actually be crazy. You might actually be shifting and enjoying your day better with a few rocks in the pockets?

Or bra, if you are a true yogi, you wont have pockets. Yes, bad joke…probably.

I remember when I was first introduced to crystals I had a resistance toward them. My mind was full of wondering if they actually worked. I’m an earth sign so I’ve always loved rocks, and growing up in Utah, I really loved the rock structures we have.

Anyways…going back to crystals. I had a friend once tell me to close my eyes, as she held different stones in my hands, unknowing anything about them, she’d ask me how I felt. Almost every time the feelings I felt correlated with their meanings. I’ve been hooked ever since!

So, you are here to learn which one’s you should use for yoga! Well, yogi, I have a few you might feel drawn to. I have a lot of stones in my home, and these are just a few I love to take on the mat with me for a kick ass practice!

GREEN JASPER: 

This stone has been my favorite lately for that special time of month where you question if you are psychotic or not. Well beauty, that to shall pass and you might want to pick up a jasper for your pocket.

This stone is a heart chakra stone with a lot of love. It helps to balance out the emotions and ease tension. Clear the water works and get it together yogi!

Put this crystal next to you for added comfort and a sense of calm for meditation. You will soon be on your way to feeling more your authentic self.

VANADINITE: 

This stone is my absolute favorite stone for getting on a more uplifted; positive beat. It ignites a different kind of fire within my mind, spirit, and body, I notice instantly. I believe it’s a powerful stone that will help you feel magnificent in no time.

Okay, so what’s this stone do?

First off, it is a sacral chakra stone with orange and red qualities to it. A very eye catching stone. It’s great for collecting and firing up those creative colors inside of you! As well as give you a boost of energy and spark of motivation.

AMETHYST: 

Yes, it is quite the popular stone and for good reason! First off, it’s purple and always beautiful as it glimmers in the light. A crown chakra stone to help protect you from negative energies that you come across. Set an amethyst on your mat and watch your being calm and slow down. Allowing you to be 100 percent indulged in your yoga practice.

On a side note this is a great stone to travel with, because of it’s amazing protective qualities.

SHELL JASPER: 

Oh hey, root chakra and beautifully grounding stone. This is a stone that feels gentle and calming. You feel rooted and at peace for a whole like feeling. With it’s powerful but quiet qualities, it can help you feel more at ease with yourself. It will balance you out with a boost of confidence.
