You can also use such crystals as citrine, hematite, tourmaline, crystal quartz, garnet, jasper, and many more, just be sure to check out their crystal properties first.

Then pick a symbolic pattern, which you feel drawn to, lay your crystals down and activate the grid by touching every stone in your grid with a centerpiece, for which we usually use a crystal point. Then, simply keep your grid at the top of your yoga mat and enjoy crystal properties.
Another way how you can enjoy crystal properties during yoga without having to deal with any kind of preparations is simply by wearing jewelry pieces with crystals.

Take similar crystals in your hands, clear your mind, and think about your intention. You can also use an intention-specific affirmation for better effect. Or even better, you can combine crystal meditation with full-body relaxation. For that, you should lay crystal items on your body while you are in Shavasana pose. This way you can plunge in even deeper meditation, getting closer to your intention and to the root of your possible obstacle.
