Make a statement in your yoga practice with this Empower & Breathe eco vest. This was designed for our Empower & Breathe events which raise awareness of how we can live our yoga off the mat.
The design features the Durga Yantra. This symbol is made from Sacred Geometry that honours and embodies the energy of the Goddess Durga. From a Tantrik Non-Dual perspective, we can tune into the energy of this goddess from within, and bring out these qualities within ourself.
Durga represents strength, protection and action. It’s the ability to fight for the good, and it’s motivated by the power of love and devotion. Durga is a fearless heart. She gives us access to our courage to do what is right and to take a stand, to dare to make the world a better place.
The yantra hold this energy with it’s own sacred features, the bindu which is the central point represents creation and absoluteness, the triangles represent Shiva (upward facing, masculine energy) and Shakti (downward facing, feminine energy), the hexagram represents the union of these male and female aspects of divinity, the circles represent manifestation, the lotus represents purity and transcendence and the square represents earth with four gates to enter into the yantra in each cardinal direction.
