  1. Beautiful piece!

  2. I have a beautiful Equilibrium Mala with a jasper guru stone, that I wear to my yoga classes. However I do not practice with it. It sits beside my mat while I practice and for meditation I have it on. It’s a very dear piece to me and sits in my alter when it’s not on. Right now is sitting on my window cell, and it has been sitting there since last night to absorb all the beautiful and powerful energies of the Full moon and the lunar eclipse.

  3. I’ve never used a mala because I don’t have one! Would love the workshop

  4. malas are such a lovely component of my movement as medicine practice! love to integrate them, but I always end up gifting them away so I have none at present 🙂

  5. I use Mala beads in my meditation practice.

    Both of mine are from Jewels of Saraswati and I couldn’t be happier with them!

  6. I have not yet used a mala as part of my yoga practice. However, I really want to try to begin using one, especially since I’ve returned to my Christian spiritual practice and embarked on a 200-hour yoga teacher training. I love how prayer/meditation beads are a a tradition across so many cultures.

  7. I’ve never used a mala because I don’t have one!

  8. I don’t use mala beads but have often thought about starting. I regularly drool over JOS items. :

  9. I have experimented with malas for meditation practice but often use mine as “worry beads” (instead of a worry stone) to keep my hands busy.

  10. I haven’t used malas before, but would love to try.

  11. I learned about Mala use in my yoga training but I do not have one to use. Would love one!

  12. I have used beads in meditation, but never a mala as part of my yoga practice. Would love to give it a whirl. Thanks IAYB! 🙂

  13. I just received a beautiful mala made by JOS and am about to use it to start a meditation practice!

  14. I would love to learn more about malas!

  15. This is a very beautiful and unique piece.

  16. I have a collection of malas – of various stones and seeds that hold different energies. I like to rotate through them while meditating. The simplest one is sandalwood – given to me by my guru and feels the most powerful and comforting.

  17. I have never used mala as part of my yoga but I have considered it!
