Blue Door Beads
4167 Piedmont Avenue, Oakland CA
Learn how to string a mala or set of prayer beads and how to use them for meditation. Malas are a set of 108 wood, crystal or gemstone beads
that are traditionally used as a counting tool for mantric meditation. Many malas that you find in stores are strung tightly together which
makes using them difficult to use during meditation. We will be knotting between the beads using silk or nylon cord to make your mala easier to use and more beautiful. Please bring a mala to re‐string or purchase 108 round beads, a meru bead set (a 3‐hole bead set) from the store before class. Stringing materials and tools will be available for purchase during class. After our malas are complete, we will practice a mantric meditation together.

Private Yoga Therapy
Yoga Therapy is a blend of asana, pranayama, mudra, mantra, yoga nidra, visualization, and meditation that blend to bring greater health and freedom to all levels of being including the physical, energetic, and mental-emotional levels. I have found that yoga and the process of turning inward is beneficial for people dealing with injury and chronic illness. It allows them to listen to their bodies in new ways that can have a grounding and healing affect on the emotions as they move toward a better understanding of themselves. As we work together to uncover the root causes for imbalance, the entire person is treated rather than just the symptoms. Find out more...
