What have I learned? You want to give gifts that are made by you with intention and love.
You’ve seen my Mala creations and now it’s your turn to create your own Mala, complete with your intention or affirmation, your choice of beads, your design. Yay! It’s so rewarding, so fun, and a beautiful time to be with friends for the evening!
Arrive at Mountain Song (My House), pour a glass of kombucha, or a cup of tea and let the fun begin!
You will start by choosing your main mala beads, each kit labeled with the meaning of the gemstones. You may be attracted to color, texture, or the intention itself! Next you’ll choose accent beads and spacers – only if it feels right to you! I will be there to help you with this very fun, sometimes onerous part!
Next up – the stringing of the beads, the tying of the knots, the guru bead and finally the tassel! You will have your individual tray to lay out your beads and can work at your pace. I have a YouTube video for any directions you may need if you don’t get your mala completed. I promise, you can do this! You may even get hooked on it!
During our time together, I’ll talk about a practice with your mala for prayer, affirmations, or meditation. You’ll leave with a printed sheet on caring for, using, and wearing your Mala. We’ll have a short meditation with our mala (no matter where you are in the process).

1st Chakra – Root | I Am
The yoga practice will guide you through a series of asana (poses) & pranayama (breathing exercises) to balance the root chakra and cultivate grounding with gratitude. When the root chakra, or Muladhara, is out of balance a person can feel anxious, uneasy, fearful, worried and stressed. This can lead to low energy and low immunity and an overall sense of instability. Use the tools of yoga to strengthen and balance to the root chakra, the foundation of all the other chakras. Cultivate self love, stability, and sense of security. You are worthy and deserving. Remind yourself, you are awesome and you are supported! Take good care of yourself so you can take good care of others.

You will find awareness for accepting others and new experiences; in letting go and being in the flow. The Sacral Chakra holds the basic needs for sexuality, creativity, intuition, and self-worth. It is also about emotions, friendliness, and confidence. Take good care of yourself so you can be free to connect on a deeper level with yourself and others.
3rd Chakra – Solar | I Do
The yoga practice will guide you through a series of asana (poses) & pranayama (breathing exercises) to balance the Solar Plexus chakra with an energizing yoga flow for willpower and motivation. The third chakra contains raw fiery energy and when it is balanced and healthy it can feed us, teach us and magnify our energy so that we can help others. Connect to your courage, your self-worth, self-esteem, and come in to your personal seat of power. This chakra area is the area where responsibility for serving others emerges. It is important for you to strengthen and balance this chakra if you want to discover and manifest whatever your amazing and unique gifts are for the world!

You are invited to focus on your originality, expressing your authentic voice and using that voice to speak your truth. Allow the story to unfold.
