Namaste

Namaste

The Namaste Collection was inspired by our venture into finding more zen in our everyday lives. In this fact-paced world and industry, ensuring our employees find balance in life is important to us.  One way we’ve done this recently is through incorporating the practice of yoga into our workplace culture.

Namaste Collection1

Our just-launched Namaste Collection of leathers is now available in our “sample store”, go to www.townsendleather.com/leather/samples/featured/Namaste-Collection to see the full collection and request your own samples. 

Townsend supported the month-long training of Monica Carey, who has worked in Customer Service at Townsend for ten years, to become certified in Sivananda Yoga.  She has since taught classes to Townsend employees during our work day.  This has proven beneficial to our employees, providing them stress relief and placing an emphasis on the importance of caring for their mental and physical well-being.

Namaste is derived from the Sanskrit nama, meaning “bow,” and te, meaning “to you.” A common salutation, namaste literally means, “I bow to you.” But the significance of the word namaste goes far beyond its use as a term of greeting; namaste is an acknowledgement that we are all divine and that we are all ultimately connected.

Our Namaste Collection has taken all aspects of Yoga and the divine world that Yogis practice and turned it into a beautiful, calming, and luxurious leather collection that is offered in 8 colors with coordinating patterns and sheens.  We hope this collection brings peace and beauty to each interior design where it is used.

Namaste Collection Prana Cowhide (PRN)

Prana meaning the vital life force or subtle energy of the vital breath – Prana is a Sanskrit word constructed of the syllables pra and an. ‘An’ means movement and ‘pra’ is a prefix meaning constant. Therefore, prana means constant motion. Breathing exercises are called Pranayamas, which means to control the Prana and control of the Prana leads to control of the mind.

Raja is a Sanskrit term meaning “king.” Just as raja is the highest rank of the state, Raja Yoga ranks highest among the four paths of yoga and is also called the royal path. The chief practice of Raja Yoga is meditation, offering a comprehensive method for controlling the waves of thought by turning our mental and physical energy into transcendental energy.  This means that it is considered the state of peace and contentment that comes with sustained yoga practice and meditation.

Namaste Collection Karma Cowhide (KRM)

Karma is a Sanskrit word which means “action” or “work.” It derives from the root verb kri, which means “to act.” As a concept, therefore, karma can refer to all the actions a person makes, both with their body and in their mind. All activity creates karma.  As one of the main paths of yoga that a practitioner can follow, Karma Yoga is the Yoga of Action; it is the path of action, or selfless service towards others.  It is the path chosen primarily by those of an outgoing nature.  It purifies the heart by teaching you to act selflessly, without thought of gain or reward.
