These ultra luxurious yoga mats are designed to elevate your everyday yoga experience. Each mat gets its sparkle from a selection of gems: a diamond (0.70 carats), ruby (3.5 carats), emerald (1 carat), sapphire (2.5 carats), amber (3 carats), opal (2 carats) and carnelian (3 carats). These jewels are not merely decorative; each of them carries specific vibrations that help clear and charge your chakras, from making you feel grounded, connected and healthy, to feeling strong, creative and compassionate. There’s a stone assigned to every chakra in your body, so a yoga session on a Chakracarma mat is meant to be nothing short of a healing experience. Gemstone weight can also be completely customised to your preferences.

The mats use ethically sourced gemstones and only the finest, vegetable-tanned leather. In fact, using skins for meditation was a prevalent practice in ancient India, as yogis believed it created deeper connections with the self and the universe. These chic mats not only offer great grip and support, but also age gracefully, crafted to look even better with time — which is why they come with a lifetime guarantee.
