Mala beads for the young yogi.  It doesn’t get much cuter than that, folks.

I’m getting crafty in Kids Yoga this week.  We will make Mini-Malas.  We will chat about what a Mala is used for and then put the beads to work.

The mantra for our little prayer beads:

I am strong.

I am beautiful.

(That’s a good mantra for any age.)

Mini-Malas were inspired by this lil’ guy who attends my ‘Baby and Me’ yoga class at Tula and insists on wearing my mala beads the whole class…


Mini-Malas were also inspired by my Grandma, who made me a tiny Mala that she made to help with focus and relaxation.

For simplicity sake, the kids and I will stick to the style of Mala that my Grandma made. (Pictured Below)

    You do realize that these go into those young mouths.Very possible to swallow and or choke on them. Just a warning– However very nice
