About Milwaukee Global Mala

OmTown Yogis presents the Milwaukee Global Mala each year since 2010. Popularly called "the Mala," the event brings local yoga community together, including yoga teachers and practitioners from all styles, studios, gyms and homes across Greater Milwaukee to unite for global peace and community. Inclusive & festive, it is part of the Global Mala Project.

The Global Mala Project...

is uniting yoga, service and collective action. The purpose of the project is to bring the global yoga community together from every continent, school and approach to form a "mala around the earth" through collective practices based upon the sacred cycle of 108 (108 Surya Namaskar, Mantra, Kriya, Meditation). - The Global Mala Project

The 2018 version of our tradition finds a home at the Milwaukee Art Museum, longtime friend and partner to omTown Yogis. This event could also be considered a *very special* Yoga @ the Museum offering. The morning begins with a few moments to register, receive a free Make-a-Mala kit with written and verbal instructions. This is followed by a guided meditation with the option of using the mala if you've made one. At 8:15 we'll begin gentle asana (stretching, movement, postures) to awaken, gather together breath, body & mind, and prepare for some sun salutations and other options. We'll practice with the shared intention of global, local and inner peace. We'll practice our sun salutations as a factor of 108, a sacred number across many traditions. This will be followed by rest in savasana.

PRE-REGISTER HERE VIA the Yoga @ the Museum page.

Proceeds support omTown Yogis' Annual Grant Fund, bringing high quality yoga & meditation instruction to those who otherwise have less access to it in our city. Together we can help make Greater Milwaukeeans more vibrant, happy and connected. Together we work to #makeMKEwhole.
