Make your own zen: Mala beads and their use are focus of Atascadero workshop



Learn the art and logic behind mala beads, a sacred part of any yoga practice, at a Mala Making and Meditation Workshop on Jan. 7 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Grateful Spirit Yoga in Atascadero hosts the event. Learn why 108 beads are required for a mala necklace, along with the history and traditions behind the practice. Attendees will also make their own mala bead necklaces. At the end, everyone will fuse their mala with a powerful mantra and wind down with a meditation session.

The workshop costs $38 if you bring your own beads and $48 if the studio provides them. Visit Grateful Spirit Yoga on Facebook for more information.
