From an esoteric point of view, it is representative of points of energy within the body and the two interlinking energies one must master through such a practise as yoga, often referred to as male or female, electric and magnetic, or more commonly in the East as yin and yang. It’s use dates back aeons and only came to be used in more mundane interpretations later throgh Greece, but it boggles the mind how it went from its initial representation to that of commerce.
