The Global Mala Yoga for Peace Project: Uniting Yoga, Seva and Collective Consciousness


This site and the Global Mala Yoga for Peace Project belongs to the global yoga community. This is a seed of a world-wide experiment into the power of meditation in action.

The purpose of the Global Mala Yoga for Peace is to unite the global yoga community from every continent, school or approach to form a "mala around the earth" through collective practices based upon the sacred cycle of 108 on Sept. 19th or 20th, Fall Equinox as the yoga world's offering to further the UN International Peace Day.

Each center offers their form of a Yoga Mala according to their yoga tradition and inspiration:

  • 108 Sun Salutations (or variations of 27, 56)
  • 108 rounds of mantra such as the Gayatri or Maha Mrityanjaya
  • 108 rounds of a kriya
  • 108 minutes of meditation, kirtan or movement meditation

Each Global Mala Yoga for Peace event can be dedicated to practice or to practice and seva - service by integrating local action, and raising funds for the organization of their choice.

In 2010 Global Mala, Yoga for Peace and Yoga Health Foundatioin united for Global Mala Yoga for Peace which are featured events during National Yoga Month. 

Join us in this experiment, organize your own Global Mala Yoga for Peace or attend one in your city.

May all beings experience the blessing of unconditional happiness!

Om Shanti,
