Shakti® Mat is the original and first textile acupressure mat brought by Om Mokshananda from India to the West in 2005. Since then, there have been many imitations, but none have the same core values as Shakti® Mat.
We take pride in our corporate social responsibility by investing directly into the community that produces the Shakti® Mats. We do this through a charity operation where our Shakti® Mats are made, the temple factory in the holiest city in India - Varanasi. Perhaps the oldest city in the world, where the sacred fires have burnt for thousands of years, we integrate devotion and work. The temple factory is built according to Vastu Shastra, which is the origin of Feng Shui, to fill the temple with harmony. All employees are women and we support them with good salaries, good working hours, good working conditions, meals and holiday pay. We also provide emplyees and their families with free health care and maintain a clean and happy working environment. Each mat sold directly supports these women and provides jobs they would not otherwise have.
Each employee yogini, has been initiated in Mantra Yoga. Through rituals and mantras to the Divine Mother Shakti, The Shakti® Mat is created. "Shakti" means the Goddess of infinite compassion and love. The Shakti® Mat is not only produced to work on the physical plane, but is created in awareness and compassion, so that every cell of the user vibrates in harmony. Our intention is to create harmony for everyone that comes in contact with The Shakti® Mat, from all stages in creation, all the way to the consumer.
Shakti Mat is the only acupressure mat on the market developed by a Vedic-trained massage therapist. All in all, Shakti® Mat offers you quality, longevity, sustainability and social peace!
All our mats are organic cotton, natural plant dyes and high quality foam.We use non-toxic, fully recyclable ABS plastic (the same plastic Lego is made of) for the spikes. This is a hard and durable plastic that keeps the spikes sharp through many years of regular use.
You are helping more people than you probably realize!
Thank you investing in The Shakti Mat!
Our business mantra is that everyone who comes in contact with a
Shakti® Mat gets a little bit of good from it.
