Using the Yantra Mat
The Yantra Mat provides relaxation for your mind, body and soul. It is simple to use and very effective. Made from cotton, it is 75cm long by 44cm wide. Its 210 flowers have 8,820 acupressure contact points which provide the same amount of pressure. Have a look at the variety of ways you can use the mat to promote relaxation. It's surprisingly comfortable and beautifully revitalising.
Lie gently on the mat on your back or stomach, place it on a chair or sofa and lean against it or use it as you would use a pillow. Feel your body relax and enjoy the moment...
You will feel the relaxation benefits whether you use the mat on a soft or hard surface. To start with, you will probably want to use the Yantra Mat on a softer surface. Whilst getting used to its effects you may experience a warm and tingly sensation and be a tiny bit uncomfortable. Keep breathing deeply until you feel totally relaxed. Try it first wearing a thin layer or put a cotton sheet or towel over the mat. After a short time, you'll be just as comfortable using the mat with no layers.
We would not recommend using the Yantra Mat if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, and if you are taking medication please check with your doctor first before using the mat.
With the mat on a comfortable even surface, gently lie down on it. Place a pillow under your neck if you can. Close your eyes, breathe deeply and relax. This stimulates acupressure points along your spine, increases your relaxation and may help relieve back problems.
Lie on your stomach in the position shown in the picture. Breathe deeply. Feel the relaxation spread through your body. This could improve your metabolism, reduce constipation and indigestion and loosen your diaphragm and respiratory muscles.
Roll up the mat and lie down gently placing your cheek against it. You may want to put a thin sheet between your skin and the mat. This could loosen any tightness you have in your neck and jaw.
You can use the mat on a chair, or lie down with the mat placed under your buttocks and thighs. This position can reduce tension and aid relaxation in your lower back and buttocks.
