True to the name 'Shivam' - consciousness, mindfulness, - we strive to make our items by re-using our existing resources, and natural, organic materials.

Our yoga mat bags are handmade using upcycled, vintage fabrics, while the aromatherapy eye pillows are filled with the healing goodness of organic lavender buds and organic flax seeds. 

We hope to extend and share the journey of these goods as they make their way around the world. From our house to yours.



Welcome to my blog at Shivam Creations.

Shivam means mindfulness in Sanskrit; this space is about trying to lead a mindful life and the elements that go with it: yoga, healthy living, nature, and the creative forces within each of us.

Open your heart with Ustrasana

Shivangi Parikh

During the winter months its very natural to feel slow, sluggish, and sometimes moody and borderline depressed. The season has a tendency to bring people down, which is why its always important to incorporate a heart-opening pose in your yoga practice. even if you dont do a full hour of practice, just opening your chest and shoulders with a single pose can work wonders to lift your spirits. 

One of the best chest openers is Ustrasana, or Camel Pose. It lifts your heart towards the sky, and also allows for a back bend to strengthen your core. The only thing with this pose is that people tend to over extend themselves in an effort to drop back as low as possible. That is not the important part - lifting your heart toward the sky is - and it doesnt matter how far you can drop. With time and practice, that day will also come.

Below is a good demo on Yoga Journal

Hope you can do this at least once or twice a week especially during the cold season.

Here's to lifting your heart, and spirits :)
