In yoga and meditation we are working with energy and therefore when we cover ourselves in a shawl which contains such peaceful, gentle energy

When choosing a meditation shawl it is important to understand the qualities of the shawl. These are best described in the Gunas as being SATTVIC in nature. This simply means that they should be made of natural fibres such as wool, ahimsa silk (eerie silk) or cotton. The production values should also be Sattvic and by this we mean handspun and hand loomed as opposed to being mass produced in a factory using power looms.

Why are the qualities of a meditation shawl so important?

In yoga and meditation we are working with energy and therefore when we cover ourselves in a shawl which contains such peaceful, gentle energy the sattvic qualities of Santosha (contentment) and ahimsa (non violence) are conducive to our meditation.

Since 2010, Door to the Himalayas has been specialising in providing meditation shawls that have been sourced from the Himalayas and have been produced by hand using local natural fibres.  Our range includes:

The Garhwal Meditation Shawl which is a mixture of merino and Botiya wool, handspun and hand loomed by Himalayan weavers in the foothills of the Himalayas near the hill station of Mussoorie. These have been described as ‘feeling as though a kiss has fallen on my shoulders’ because of the gentle and soft feel when draped over the shoulders. In these shawls no chemicals are used to bleach the wool they are a soft white natural colour.

Yoga Blanket/ Himalayan Blanket these are perfect for Savasana, the relaxation at the end of your yoga practise also referred to as Yoga Nidra. These blankets have been sourced from the Botiya tribe who live high in the Himalayas on the Indo Tibetan border near the source of the Ganges. They are mainly shepherds and graze their sheep in the fresh mountain air away from pollution, the sheep are hand sheared twice a year and the wool is then washed in the glacier water flowing down from Gormukh the opening at the glacier. This water is auspicious in nature and is a pure as water can be. Once washed the ladies of the Botiya tribe enjoy sitting together in small groups to deburr, card and spin to produce natural creamy white and grey yarn free from chemicals, bleach or dyes. The yarn is finally set up on to foot powered looms and each shawl takes approximately a day and a half to make as the weft is sent through by hand.

Pashmina Meditation Shawls despite Pashmina being such an expensive, rare and sought after fibre it is also when produced in the Vale of Kashmir, totally Sattvic in nature. The fibres are sourced at high altitude in the Changtang area of Ladakh where the fibres are combed from the under belly of the Lena Rama goat. These fibres are hand spun by ladies in their homes and at their leisure to produce the incredibly fine yarn which can only be woven by hand. The result after a 10 days on the foot powered loom is an incredibly fine, light weight, natural creamy white meditation shawl.
