The Yoga of Protection: Mantra + Mala Making

weave mantra into your very own sacred mala

Join mala artists and master teachers Stephanie Chee Barea & Jillian Glikbarg for a weekend of mantra and mala-making in practice and community. Gain greater understanding of the science and application of mantra – the primal, sacred sound of higher Consciousness – as we tap into our creative flow in the design and creation of our own personalized mala charged with intention.

Each student will have the opportunity to choose among sandalwood, lava and semi-precious crystal beads to thread and knot her very own mala to take home and for one’s personal practice or as an beautiful object of adornment. 


  • preparatory asana and pranayama practices to cultivate steadiness and ease for meditation

  • transmission, study and practice of mantra japa (mantra meditation)

  • guidance and instruction in the design and creation of your own personalized mala

  • all necessary materials: 108 beads, nylon cord, silk or leather tassel
