Mala Necklaces and Yoga at Power Yoga Buffalo


This class is sold out, but be sure to add yourself to the waitlist! This is how we know what classes you want more of. We're also planning another session for August, so add yourself to the waitlist to be notified when it is live on the website! =)

MUSEjar is headed to the Power Yoga Buffalo Studio right around the corner on Oakwood Ave. where we will combine two very artful practices, yoga and mala making. With a 45min yoga practice and a 1 hour mala making class, there is no better way to enjoy your Sunday afternoon. Everything you need to enhance your mind, body, and soul in one spot!

A Japa Mala or Mala is a set of beads commonly used by Hindus and Buddhists. Malas are used for keeping count while reciting, chanting, or mentally repeating a mantra or the name or names of a deity. This practice is known in Sanskritas japa. We will be showing you how to create your very own Mala Necklace, complete with the traditional wood beads, semi precious stone marker beads and tassel. 


Ages: Most suitable for adults of all ages - no experience necessary!

Materials: All supplies are included.

Instructor: Vanessa Frost (mala making) & Lauren Chmielowiec (yoga)

As a full time artist and owner of MUSEjar, Vanessa finds inspiration and joy in teaching art. Art is a language that is often forgotten about and it's amazing what happens once it's tapped into. Her background is fine art and film production, with a degree from The University of Vermont. She loves mixed media, and currently works mainly with acrylics, but she is constantly exploring and experimenting with all other mediums.

NOTE: All classes require a minimum number of students to run. Please sign up in advance to help avoid cancellation due to low registration. In the case of a cancellation you will be notified prior and receive a full refund. Please read our class policies.
