Hi- my name is Janice but my spiritual name is Sangeeta which was given to me by my teacher in India.

The idea for making moonseats came about after my partner and I returned from a year long study at the Bihar Yoga Bharati in India. For his birthday I decided to make him a crescent moon shaped meditation cushion because I felt that that shape made the most sense for a comfortable cross legged sitting position. Since I love hand embroidery, I embroidered a symbol of the heart chakra on the centre. He loved it so much that I decided to make one for myself as well. When I noticed one of my yoga students looking a bit uncomfortable I gave her mine to try- and she loved it too! So much so that I gave it to her, made another one for myself only to give it to another student.

So I have been making and embroidering moonseats for over 6 years now and it still gives me great satisfaction to do so.

I am helped by a fabulous lady called Primrose who stuffs the cushions and ensures that each one is firm and perfectly shaped. The inner layer is made of a thick sturdy denim which is then covered by a moleskin "suede" material which has the embroidered symbol on it.

Listed in this shop are a few designs and you can see more at If you have a particular design in mind- you can let me know and I can make it up for you. The moleskin comes in a wide variety of colours so you need only ask me and I am almost certain I will have it.

I got into designing and making clothing because I couldn't seem to find designs that I liked for yoga. When I made the roll top pants for myself- I had a flurry or orders and am happy to have access to good quality cotton- lycra in so many different colours that enables me to keep producing within South Africa and not to have to outsurce for anything.

Thanks for visiting
Hari Om

Love Sangeeta
