The voice is a powerful tool that can help ease anxiety, assist in speaking your truth, and carry your unique song! We will be exploring the versatile uses of the vocal instrument we carry with us at all times. This class will begin with a gentle warm up, movement, and asanas to open up the throat chakra. We will practice breathing and vocal technique with a yogic twist! We will close the class by learning and singing the Gayatri mantra. This workshop is open to anyone wanting to find your voice, who enjoys singing and wants to incorporate voice into their practice.

A mala is a practical tool for meditation, but it is so much more than that. It becomes a reminder of our practice and a powerful talisman that protects us and connects us to the sacred as we perceive it.

In this workshop we will explore the techniques of mantra meditation, or japa. We will talk about the use of Malas, or garlands of beads, to facilitate mantra recitation. The techniques of how to use Malas will be explained in depth as well as why we might choose to have them or use them.

While any kind of Mala can often be used for practice, this workshop provides the opportunity to make a truly unique and personal Mala and imbue it with some positive energy. The intention that we put behind our practices, which includes the items we use for them, can dramatically increase the vitality of our connection to them.

Students must bring their own beads for this workshop. If you’d like to make a full mala, please bring at least 109 beads. You might like to bring extra beads for additional ornamentation or experimentation. If you’d like to make a half or quarter mala, you can bring at least 55 or at least 28.

Beads can be wood, bone, gemstone, or another material that has personal significance. Students can select beads by exploring their meaning and uses or just select through instinct and aesthetic preference, both approaches are valid.

We will provide all of the other tools for creating Malas, including string, wire, and tassles. If you have any questions about this, please feel free to contact us.
