108 Yoga Mala



This Sunday, September 21st at 9am, Morning Glory Yoga is uniting with The Global Mala Project  and yoga communities around the world to practice 108 Sun Salutations in support of International Peace Day.

Mala – a sacred garland, 108 prayer beads , a timeless tool for transformation, a global gathering for unifying consciousness and action through yoga.

The purpose of the Global Mala is to unite the global yoga community from every continent, school or approach to form a “mala around the earth” through collective practices based upon the sacred cycle of 108 on September 21st, Fall Equinox, as the yoga world’s offering to further the UN International Peace Day.

Please join us for  1 – 108 Sun Salutations.  We will move as a group at a very moderate/mindful pace, creating a mediation through action.  You are invited to rest and modify as needed and will find listening to your body to be very empowering.  Let’s lend our efforts to the greater intention of creating a peaceful world.

Lokaha Samasta Sukhino Bhavantu! May all beings experience the blessing of unconditional happiness!


Please arrive early to ensure that we begin on time — powerfully and peacefully united.
