Hamsa

Hamsa hand of protection

The symbol in the Yogaru logo is called a hamsa hand. It is an ancient symbol of protection, and you’ll find a small hamsa on all my jewellery designs. It brings the wearer happiness, peace, luck, prosperity and protection from The Evil Eye. You’ll see the amulet frequently in the context of yoga. The word hamsa means five, referring to the five digits of the hand. Each digit represents one of the four elements (with the addition of ethereal); one of the five senses; and five of the seven chakras (energy channels found along the spine).

The symbol also has the quality of ‘taking a pause’ or stopping, which is what Yogaru is all about. When you wear your piece it will protect you and keep you safe.
