Global Mala Instructors

Sunday 18th September at Palm Cove Peace Day

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 ,        as the yoga world’s offering to further the UN International Peace Day.

Han Wee Tan harmoniumStart the day at 8.15am with Mantra Meditation with Han Wee Tan and friends.

"The Mahamrityunjaya Mantra is a powerful Mantra for healing and liberation. When chanted mindfully and with intention, the vibrations help to purify not only the chanter but the environment as well, creating an atmosphere of harmony and peace for all beings. The Mantra will be broken up initially to allow participants to learn the words before chanting together for 108 rounds collectively as a group."

Your leaders through 108 rounds of Sun Salutations
