Global Mala

The NJYC is Officially Hosting NJ’s 9th Annual Global Mala!

September 23, 2018
Long Branch, NJ
7:30 AM – 12 PM
7:30 AM FREE beach meditation
9:00 AM 108-minute yoga practice

The Global Mala Project is an annual celebration of mindfulness that unites 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).

Asbury Park, NJ served as a wonderful hOMe for the Mala from 2009 until 2017.

Reggie Flimlin, the owner of Juice Basin and one of the state’s top 25 Leading Women Entrepreneurs, brought the Mala to the Jersey Shore in 2009 for a multitude of reasons – to unite the yoga community, to raise funds and awareness for worthy causes, to invite people from all over the state to the progressive, transformative, and artistically renowned city of Asbury Park, and to celebrate of LOHAS, which stands for “lifestyle of health and sustainability”. Reggie ran the event with incredible success for four years, before passing it into the strong and capable hands of Christian Valeriani, the owner of Evenflow Yoga. Christian, together with his wife Dana, continued to grow the tradition of the Mala for four years thereafter, before graciously entrusting the NJYC with such a special event.

On September 23, 2018, the NJ Yoga Community will celebrate the Global Mala in Long Branch, NJ for the first time, right on the Great Lawn and the Promenade. We are grateful for the opportunity to infuse new energy and life into what has always been one of the most loved and anticipated yoga events of the year.

What else is new? The style of the practice! In 2018, you will have the chance to move and groove with 12 of the best yoga teachers in NJ, who will each take the stage for 9 minutes. These teachers will bring their creativity and personal vibe to the day in an unprecedentedly exciting way.
