Mala Bead Making Workshop

What are mala beads? Mala beads are worn during meditation and yoga to help enhance your practice and awareness! They are made from a string of 108 beads-a sacred number holding much power and significance in many cultures and practices worldwide. Llamaste will be holding a unique workshop for children ages 8+ through adult, to come together to create their own special mala beads!

This workshop will include an all levels yoga class, a brief discussion on mala beads and how/when to use and wear them, and time to make your very own in either a necklace or bracelet! We provide all materials, colorful beads, and mats for your practice. You're welcome to bring any significant charms, gems, tassels, or symbolic pieces of jewelry to add into your mala beads. Ideal for ages 8 and up. Grab your tickets today!

This event will be hosted by instructor Jennifer Smeddy. Jennifer is a 200-hr RYT with a background in Education. She has worked with children for years in the education industry and is so excited to be leading and hosting this workshop for Llamaste's community. Check out her full bio on our site at!
