The Shakti® Charity Factory
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 employees 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.
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.
