Align with your intention with mala beads
Mala necklaces are the perfect way to stay aligned with your intention in meditation and throughout the day. Each of the gorgeous Alo Yoga mala necklaces is comprised of 108 precious gemstone beads, as is customary with traditional mala necklaces.
The meaning behind 108 beads
There are many theories as to the reason for the specific number of 108 beads that make up Mala necklaces, and the number 108 holds significant meaning in yoga. In an article in Yoga Journal about the significance of the number 108, the Yoga Journal goes into more detail on its significance, and Shiva Rae explains that in the yogic tradition, there are 108 known pithas, or sacred sites, throughout India. There are also 108 Upanishads and 108 marma points, or sacred places of the body. It is also customary for some yogis to perform 108 sun salutations at the time of spring equinox. The significance of 108 is represented in so many ways.
Meditating with your mala
When meditating with your mala necklace, hold it in your right hand, draped between your middle and index finger. Starting at the guru bead, or charm, use your thumb to pull each bead towards you, repeating your mantra until you've traveled all the way around the mala and back to the guru bead again. Manifest your intention by repeating your mantra 108 times as you touch each bead, one by one to actualize and invoke your inner vision into your outer existence.
