Like the practice of yoga, our beautiful new jewelry designs awaken the spirit and reflect feelings of balance and peace. Simple symbols such as the tree of life, lotus flower, and Om character adorn bracelets, necklaces, rings, and more.
Why is yoga jewelry on-trend now? After all, yoga symbols have been used in various forms for thousands of years. In recent decades, though, more and more people have discovered that yoga offers health, healing, and even inner transformation.
As the practice has grown, so has the popularity of jewelry inspired by yoga symbols. Whether selecting something for yourself or as a gift for someone special, knowing more about the meaning of these symbols proves helpful.
Om – The Om symbol as seen on our Om ring is written in ancient Sanskrit. Its meaning is deeply significant and spiritual, and is representative of the four divine states of Brahman – karuna (compassion), metta (loving kindness), mudita (sympathetic joy), and upekkha (equanimity). Each part of the Om symbol has a special meaning. The two curves on top of one another, and the connected curve to the right, which might remind you of the number 30, represent three states of consciousness. The larger, bottom curve, stands for the state of normal awareness or being awake. The smaller curve above it stands for deep sleep, and the one that emanates from the center of these two curves represents the dream state.
Lotus – Many yoga poses are inspired by things found in nature, such as trees, animals, and flowers. Several of these poses have their own symbols. The lotus symbol, as seen on our lotus bracelet, symbolizes one’s potential to expand and blossom physically, mentally, and spiritually.
Tree of Life – This symbol, which adorns the custom beaded tree of life bracelet, has long been associated with various spiritual traditions. It represents faith and deep grounding, as well as interconnectedness between all things.
There are different ways to personalize these special pieces of jewelry. You may want to have a name – your own, or that of a gift recipient – engraved on the inside of a ring or on a pendant. You might also consider having a significant word engraved on the item you choose. Meaningful ones that remind you of the role yoga plays in your life are particularly distinctive, and can have a grounding effect that helps you to overcome adversity with greater ease. Om, Breathe, Namaste, Ananda, and Peace are some examples.
However you personalize and whichever symbol you choose, you will find that our yoga inspired jewelry is both beautiful and meaningful at MyNameNecklace.
