What is a Mala? And how do I use it?

Don’t we love to wear our yoga, from tees to tattoos to jewelry that expresses our devotion to the practice?


What is a Mala?  

Strands of 108 beads plus a “guru” bead traditionally used for meditation and prayer, are the newest thing in wearable yoga, with designers making mala necklaces that combine gemstones impregnated with potent energies and sacred meaning to infuse your practice.


 A mala is used to chant the names of God. It’s the same thing as prayer beads, or a rosary.

A Hindu mala is usually worked with by using the right hand. The mala is held resting over the third finger of the right hand, and the beads are brought toward you, one by one, using the thumb. Each bead counts one repetition of the mantra. When you get around to the guru bead, you don’t count it, and you don’t pass it; you stop there, mentally bow to the guru, flip the mala around, and start going back the other way. Each time you come to the guru bead you awaken once more, then you turn around and go back the way you came.
