Custom Hand Painted Yoga Mats...

Picture
My hand painted yogamats happened by accident! As an artist and a yogi I really wanted a way to blend both of my loves together. I looked down at my yoga mat one night during class and thought wow, I wonder what it would be like to practice on my mat with an image that filled my heart with joy? So I went home and decided to depict the 7 Chakras in a creative way that I understood on my mat. While I was painting I thought about all the things that were good in my life, I prayed for more healing to come in, for blessings for my mat and my practice and for anything good that the Universe would like to share with  me.

The domino effect was tremendous the next week when I went back to class. My fellow students had never seen a mat like this before!. For me as an artist it made sense to have my prayers laid out in front of me to focus on so I could be reminded of all the good changes I was working on bringing into my life. As I practiced I could feel not only a sense of comfort and security, but also the energetic vibration of the colors and images and hidden messages that came through in "aha!" moments every time I was on my mat. Before I knew it, I was getting orders in every week from my fellow students and their friends who wanted to have their yogamat become a unique and  special place to practice their moving meditations on. It has been a merging and blessing of two of my favorite worlds and affords me the chance to focus and concentrate and send love to people I may never have the chance to meet or know about in person.

If you are interested in seeing more of my mats and possibly ordering one, they are $150 each plus $20 shipping, and you can order them through my main site www.AlineMarie.com
