The most common way to Shakti is in bed before sleep. It’s easy to add to your bedtime ritual, whether that’s with a book or your favourite show. Just 20 minutes, lying down, under your blankets is all it takes to get started!
As part of your purchase, you’ll receive a free 5-part Shakti tutorial series to help guide you through your first Shakti sessions.
We’re going to be honest, lying on sharp spikes can be a little intense at first, but your body is going to love you for it.
First, you will experience a prickly discomfort that is tempting to resist. Once you push through, the sensations melt into a tingly warmth, known as the addictive “Shakti burn”. After 20 minutes it’s time for the real reward—the full-body sensation kicks in, tension washes away and you’re ready for deep sleep.
Choosing a Shakti comes down to more than just colour. There are 3 levels that will help you unlock all of the benefits of acupressure:
• If you’re curious about acupressure and happy to grit your teeth for a reward then the Originals are our most popular place to start. Effectively target deep tissue and restore the body in the same way deep tissue massage would. A perfect balance of challenge and reward.
• If you’re intimidated by the spikes and not quite ready to take the full Shakti leap of faith, then start with the Light. This has all the spikes but without the ‘bite’ resulting in a more gentle Shakti experience.
• On the other hand, if you’re wanting to join the Shakti masters, then the Advanced is for you. Imagine a hot sauna, cold plunge combo… Not for the faint-hearted, but well worth the reward if you’re ready for the upgrade!
The Shakti Mat Original - Black, now has two foam options to choose from. Here's the lowdown to help you pick the right one.
Standard foam "tried and tested" - available in all Shakti Mat colours and intensities.
• Made from the standard stuffing you will regularly see used in bedding and furniture.
• Lighter than the NiryasaFoam meaning it travels well and holds a firmer shape and structure.
• Cost-friendly, hypoallergenic and latex-free.
NiryasaFoam "something we're trying" - exclusive to the Black Mat in Original intensity.
• 100% natural - made from organic latex, sustainably harvested from FSC-certified rubber trees.
• Softer, springier and squishier than the standard foam for extra body-contouring and a satisfying sinking feeling.
• Allows heavier parts of your body to shape to your Shakti, taking your relaxation to a deeper level.
• Plant-powered to be breathable, sleep-cool and super long-lasting.
Both the standard foam and NiryasaFoam provide comfort and support for your Shakti experience, but the luxury features of the NiryasaFoam result in a deeper Shakti sensation and overall a better experience. If you're body isn't compatible with latex, we recommend you opt for the standard foam.
