Last spring I was living with the loveliest, soulful friend & we had had the best weekly ritual. Monday nights after my yin class, we'd play music, break out the crystals, curl up on the floor & make malas. It was such a grounding way to start the week. Mala Monday made that typically challenging day of the week a little sweeter.
Malas are traditional meditation beads, a circle of 108 beads + 1 (the guru bead, representing a pause & moment of gratitude for our teachers). The tassel symbolizes oneness & connection, representing the thousand-petaled lotus of the crown chakra. Malas are meditative tools; the tactile weight & texture of the beads act as an anchor to the wandering mind & counting mantra repetitions by passing the beads through your fingers will deepen affirmations & intentions. They support your energy & emotions, protect from negativity, and act as a reminder of practice, intention, & self-love that can travel with you throughout your journey.
This beauty is inspired by sunset tones with complimenting turquoise accents. Citrine, yellow aventurine, orange aventurine & turquoise. Features a handmade tassel & Ganesha detail (the remover of obstacles). Available now at the mala store at www.eva.yoga/shop
