Malas and jewelry items include pendants and symbols with ‘Namaste’, ‘Om’, Lotus, the ‘Vitarka’ hand mudra, and Ganesh. We have also developed a nightlight and shadowbox with an ‘Om’ above a Lotus which provides soft gentle lighting to your practice space. You can read more about the symbols by visiting our ‘Symbols’ page.

Many of the symbols and icons that are meaningful in the yoga and Hindu traditions are shared with the Buddhist tradition. Both traditions are based in meditation and share the understanding of the unity of mind and body. Both originally come from India and so share several of the symbols and images such as the lotus and ‘om’ featured in many of Shakya Design items.

We have marked our ‘Yoga Friendly’ items with a Yoga Icon yoga-icon so that it is easy to locate them on the website. The many yoga friendly products such as bracelet malas, jewelry, statues, and night lights and can be found on the pages throughout our website.
