I am so excited to host my second mala bracelet class. The first one was filled with so much laughter and fun that I knew immediately I would be making mala classes a regular thing. Hopefully this will be the start of offering a mala class every month, each one with different beads and a different handmade charm!
What is a mala?
These beautiful bracelets originated as part of buddhist and hindu meditation practices and today can be a gorgeous part of your yoga lifestyle.
