Hey beautiful souls!
We dance to a different beat, stretch with the yogi, run to the highest peaks, travel to unexplored territories, and swim where the ocean becomes one. We enhance your yoga practice with THE SHAKTI YOGA WHEEL.
THE SHAKTI YOGA WHEEL STORY
Open your heart and grow like a lotus, is our motto. For us it embodies the essence of the yoga teaching: to embrace life with acceptance and poise, no matter the situation. We’re not just a brand, but a way of living, loving, and becoming.
Founded in 2015, we come from a true love of yoga, wellness, and community. Together with my husband we started to develop our own yoga wheel because we wanted a light weighted, extra strong and eco-friendly wheel with an extra soft mat on top. THE SHAKTI YOGA WHEEL was born.
THE SHAKTI YOGA WHEEL is a personal passion project that represents a growing group of like-minded individuals. The core purpose of THE SHAKTI YOGA WHEEL is to showcase our trademark attitude through unique products.
The yoga wheel and it designs are heavily inspired by the yoga wheel pose. Before the yoga wheel, the wheel pose has long been a favorite for opening up the spine as well as the solar plexus chakra (the word chakra itself, meaning wheel). An open solar plexus chakra gives self-worth, self-power, and self-esteem. We couldn’t think of a better thing to represent.
WHY THE LOTUS? In Buddhism the lotus is known to be associated with purity, spiritual awakening and faithfulness.
The flower is considered pure as it is able to emerge from murky waters in the morning and be perfectly clean. Therefore in common with Egyptian mythology the lotus is seen as a sign of rebirth, but additionally it is associated with purity.
The breaking of the surface every morning is also suggestive of desire, this leads to it being associated with spiritual enlightenment.
