Global Mala: A Collective Pulse for Peace


  • Yoga Spot East Gate bldg. 7F 78-8 Yamashita-cho Naka-ku Yokohama Japan (map)

What is Global Mala?

The purpose of Global Mala (“mala” means circle or garland in sanskrit) is to unite people around the planet in collective movement with an intention for peace.  This movement coincides with the United Nations’ International Day of Peace and the auspicious season of the autumnal equinox. Global Mala was lovingly developed in 2007 by Shiva Rea (you can learn more about the worldwide movement here: www.globalmala.com).

Seva (Service)

The deeper intention of Global Mala is an embodiment of seva or sacred service. With that as our purpose for this practice, we are contributing 100% of the energetic and financial currency generated to the Kodomo Hope Project, an organization that offers yoga teachings to youth populations in the areas affected by the 2011 earthquake in northern Japan.  Together, we will be a part of the vibration that promotes empowered peace and lasting change through compassion and love.
