Chakra Stencils designed by Kathryn Costa
for StencilGirl Products
Kathryn Costa’s chakra stencils save you time drawing the chakra art so you can focus on your wellness intentions as you add your own patterns, color, and creative flair to the classic chakra designs.
Rooted in the yogic tradition, chakras are part of our energetic body. There are seven main chakras located along the spine where energy is stored, regulated, and distributed. Each chakra has a specific tone that relates to targeted areas of the body and has a distinct effect on our mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
Each chakra mandala is characterized by a geometric pattern, surrounded by a specific number of lotus petals that involve careful measuring and planning to draw.
Working with Chakra Stencils
as a Wellness & Spiritual Practice
Kathryn’s work with chakras began one fateful day when her jeans unexpectedly split while at a women’s wellness weekend. In that moment, Kathryn had a decision to make – buy another pair of jeans or focus on her health to fit into a smaller pair of jeans waiting for her in the closet. Deciding on the wellness journey, Kathryn sought out a holistic approach that was more than counting calories.
As a mandala artist, Kathryn was curious to explore charka art not realizing how this journey would open up a new path of healing with color, sound, movement, food, sacred geometry, intentions and affirmations.
Kathryn uses her chakra stencils as part of a daily mindfulness and spiritual practice. As she sits in her favorite chair, she puts on some meditation music, spends a few moments to get centered and asks the question, “What needs my attention?” Then she reaches for a chakra stencil that will help her to explore what’s showing up. After tracing the chakra, she then fills the design with patterns, color, and/or journal writing as she tunes in to listen to her inner wise self.
