Class Description

Get Meditative and Creative! Walk away with a personally designed 108-mala bead necklace handcrafted by you! Known traditionally and in various cultures as prayer beads, today malas have gained popularity for use in yoga and meditation, and are also simply worn as jewelry, serving as a physical reminder of your personal intentions & affirmations. Our workshop dives into the history & uses of malas and touches briefly on meditation & mantra practices. Learn about the energetic meaning of the natural elements and gemstones as you are led through the creation of your very own mala necklace.
