About the Mala Design
This is part of the Spring 2018 collection. I designed this mala for a morning yoga practice. Spring is a wonderful time to restart your practice in the morning. As the sun rises earlier, it is easier to awaken with the dawn and practice yoga. The guru is a rising sun, and symbolic of the dedicated practice of sun salutations. This mala will cleanse your aura, focus your intent for the day, and place you in a mindset for accepting what may arise. This mala is a play on practice and beauty. Also, I used hints of sterling silver and labradorite for a layer energetic protection and inner guidance. Finally, the design has cotton tassel in a fine cream color to match the smooth texture and color of the elegant riverstone mala beads.
