With World Yoga Day on the horizon (21st June), we've put together the perfect mantras for all you yoga lovers out there...
Each piece of Mantra Jewellery represents a powerful mantra, or positive phrase, to repeat to yourself through the day as you hold onto your jewellery. Use it to give you a few moments of peace, stillness and mindfulness, during a busy day; or to bring to mind your intention from your morning yoga session.
Here are our top 7 mantras for yogis
‘Be still, be present, be mindful’
A beautiful reminder to just slow down, be in the present moment, and notice what is going on around you. The present moment is all that we have – yesterday has gone, and tomorrow isn’t here yet - so be here now, in the present.
‘I breathe in calmness, I breathe out stress’
Take a moment during your day to just breathe. Inhale, exhale. Deep breaths centre us, ground us, and connect us back to ourselves. Hold onto your necklace and slow everything down.
‘May I awake each day renewed’
Each day gives us the chance for a new start, a new outlook, a new mindset. When you turn out your light, set an intention for how you want to feel in the morning; and intend to keep that mindset of feeling refreshed and renewed throughout your day.
‘Sky above me, earth below me, fire inside me’
This is a wonderful yoga mantra. As you stand, grounded in Tree pose, really feel the earth beneath your feet, holding you steady; picture the sky above you, representing infinite possibility; and experience the energy inside your body, giving you life. Take this feeling with you off the mat, as you go through your day.
‘Be the best version of you’
Just as the Lotus Flower flourishes anew each morning, rising through the muddy waters to always be at its brightest and purest, so we can all be the best version of ourselves. How we respond and how we behave in our lives is our choice – wear this mantra to remind you to always choose the right way.
‘Peace comes from within’
A lovely mantra to bring to mind when sitting in Easy pose on our mat. The key is to carry that thought throughout our busy lives, remembering that it is from within ourselves we will find the happiness and contentment that we seek, not from external factors. Our yoga practice can help us live this.
‘My body achieves what my mind believes’
Some yoga asanas can be difficult and challenging, and we can feel pressure to get them ‘right’ when we are in a yoga class. With a calm mindset, regular practise, and full acceptance of the differences in all our bodies - we can astonish ourselves with how much we are capable of.
