September 17th – Global Mala at Vulcan Park

 8am-11am – Come practice for peace and

help Sweet Om Alabama in its mission.

Each September, Sweet Om Alabama brings the yoga community together at the Global Mala for Peace Project. This annual event is held at Vulcan Park & Museum, where hundreds of participants gather to be led through 108 sun salutations by local teachers against the backdrop of the city skyline. Global Mala’s purpose is to unite yoga communities from every continent, school, and approach to form a “mala around the earth”. The mala, a garland constructed of 108 beads that is used during meditation, signifies the power a group can harness when individual intentions unite for the same cause. Birmingham’s 2015 Global Mala will be hosted by and benefit Sweet Om Alabama, a Birmingham-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit whose mission is to cultivate the health and well-being of Alabamians by mobilizing the yoga community to bring the benefits of yoga to those who lack access and to increase the awareness and practice of yoga in Alabama.
