We provide educational and financial support to the children of the workers who make our mats. These are the daughters of some of our weavers. When you buy a mat, $5 goes towards helping educate these girls and all the children of our productions workers. If you choose to make an additional donation, 100% goes toward this cause. Not a dime is deducted for administration.
Our mats are produced in a region of India where many communities struggle to meet basic educational needs and necessities, such as clean water and medical care. With a little help from our friends in the yoga community, children of this region can become self-sufficient and look to a better future.
In Hinduism, a Kalash (brass container) is considered to be a symbol of abundance and the ‘source of life’. Each portion of the Kalash represents material things: the pot references a container of fertility, the leaves are associated with the God of Love, Kama, and symbolize the pleasure of fertility, and often a coconut embodies prosperity and power. For Yogasana Circle, the green swirl represents the benefaction received. The green leaf symbolizes growth and nurturing provided to the children we help to support.
