5 Crystals To Boost Your Yoga Practice

Incorporating crystals and stones can be an easy way to boost the power of your yoga and meditation practice. Throughout recorded history, crystals have been valued for their beauty as well as for their healing powers on the mind, body, and soul. From creating positive change to manifesting intentions, to giving you protection, heightened intuition and a deeper sense of compassion and unconditional love - these little beauties can help you to go deeper and get more clear.

While there are many different types of crystals and gemstones that you can use in your yoga and meditation practice, we've chosen a few you can use to promote peace, love, groundedness, protection, and strength.

You can place crystals and stones around your yoga mat or the room as you practice. If there is a specific stone that you’re attracted to or needing right now, you can wear it as a pendant, bracelet or even as a mala. We also have our exclusive line of Crystal Bra Bracelets that can easily be attached to your outfit.

The first stone we would choose is Shungite. At Radiance, we like to call Shungite the Miracle Stone. It has the ability to purify, charge, protect, stabilize and heal. It is an excellent to purify water. Shungite has strong mystical energies that infuse the auric field with light. It can propel one along one's path keeping one focused, grounded and centered.

Of course we would also recommend Rose Quartz. Rose Quartz is a calming and reassuring crystal, excellent for use in trauma or crisis, including the emotional upheaval of mid-life crisis. It strengthens empathy, sensitivity, and aids in the acceptance of necessary change. It is also an excellent stone for comforting grief.

Reawakening the heart to its own innate love, it provides a deep sense of personal fulfillment and contentment, allowing one the capacity to truly give and receive love from others.

Fluorite is a protective and stabilizing stone that is excellent for promoting grounding, focus, and concentration and removing cluttered thoughts and negative thought patterns. This harmonizing and balancing stone helps overcome chaos, calm restlessness, and dissolve illusions.

Amethyst is a stone of peace, stability, clarity, patience, and inner strength. This sacred crystal opens and activates the crown chakra and helps purify the mind of negative thoughts. Meditating with this crystal will remove darkness, promote intuition, and boost inner peace.

Clear Quartz is a very popular and common crystal that is used to promote clarity of mind, inner strength, and spiritual growth. It is is particularly beneficial for deepening one’s state of meditation.Clear Quartz amplifies the energy or intention of other stones and can be used to align all of the chakras.
