Purple is a very special color, a balance between Red (a stimulating colour) and Blue (a calming colour). Seen in all its glory during sunsets as daylight transforms into darkness, it symbolizes change of consciousness and transcendence from our normal waking state into the palace of awareness.
The Purple base on your mat is meant to calm your mind. It is the colour of the Crown chakra, Sahasrara , the seventh chakra located on the top of the head. It is linked to our nervous system and our brain and represents pure thought. It connects us with infinite consciousness and deep spiritual understanding.
Gemstones that help the awakening of the Sahasrara, like Amethyst, can be used during meditation by being placed between the eyebrows while lying down. Amethyst’s gentle purple energy, helps quiet down our thoughts allowing the mind to experience tranquility. Purple teaches humility and shows the way into the realm of true knowing and wisdom.

ALA D ASTRA - Philosophy & Bio

Aladastra [Ala-d- Astra ] : translation: “pathway of stars”, composed by the words ala and astra.

The word Ala has wonderful meanings in different cultures, in architecture though it signifies the small rectangular space before entering the altar of a temple.

D’astra translates ‘of stars’ springing from the ancient Greek word for star , Aster .

Just as yoga prepares you to enter the cosmic realm, your mat is your personal altar, a small celestial corridor on which you train your body and cleanse your mind and soul to enter peacefully a higher state of being.

The artworks on the mats have a threefold purpose. The first layer is the color palette. All colors have special powers and when combined can assist in the fine tuning of emotions. The second layer is the alignments. Patterns and lines that help you create mental notes on the placement of your limbs during Asanas. Through practice you will start placing yourself without having to double check your positioning, removing therefore an extra layer of control enabling you thus to let go, and in time become fluid. The third layer is comprised by their imagery and symbols. Although in total a beautiful composition is the end result every drawing on you mat has a different purpose, either an animal whose strong traits are accentuated, either a talisman that for centuries across cultures has been used for enlightenment, good luck and transmittance of positivity.

Ps: They have a surprise for you… everything about their mat is revealed in the small manual accompanying it… so go on discover the story of your mat layer by layer!
