How we use Moonstone
Here are some ways we love to use Moonstone at Yoga & Oils.
Begin your yoga session with a short meditation. Hold a moonstone in your hand or place it on your third eye (forehead) or heart chakra. Focus on your breath and visualise the calming, renewing energy of the moonstone enveloping you, bringing balance and tranquility.
While performing asanas (yoga postures), place a moonstone on the corresponding chakra to enhance the energy flow and deepen your practice. For example, place it on your heart chakra during heart-opening poses like Camel Pose or Cobra Pose.
Wear moonstone jewelry, like a pendant or bracelet, during your practice to keep its energy close to your body. This can help maintain a sense of calm and balance throughout your session.
Close your eyes during Savasana (Corpse Pose) and visualise the soothing energy of the moonstone spreading throughout your body, promoting relaxation, renewal and inner peace.
