  4. Moonstone taps greatly into the feminine energy of the world through its connection to the Moon and that is why it is a crystal of life wisdom and intuition. It is also a stone that does great work for your mind, soothing violent urges, anger and providing you with deep relaxation and clear thinking.
  5. Shungite is a powerhouse of protection from negative influences and outside threats, be it negative energy, geopathic stress, fatigue, anxiety, and irrational fears.

        So these are our usual suspects when it comes to choosing crystals for our crystals healing and exercising, yet they are not the only ones. 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.



Now, what can you do to improve your yoga experience with the power of crystals?

        The basic thing here is that you should let crystal properties into your yoga routine. There are plenty of ways to do that. First of all, you can place crystals that you’ve chosen on top of your yoga mat. That will give you their presence, energy, and properties while you are exercising. However, you can dramatically increase this presence by creating a crystal grid. Pick crystals, which have properties that correlate with your intentions, yet we advise to use crystals with similar properties for maximum effect. 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. Such jewelry items as string bracelets are very comfortable to wear and won’t lower your mobility, basically, you won’t even feel them. You should wear a crystal bracelet on the left hand during your yoga routine since the energy enters your body from the left side.

        To get to a deeper connection with the crystal vibes you can meditate on them during your yoga exercises. To do that, you should be in the posture in which your hands are free, for example, the lotus position or the throne pose. 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.
