The Sanskrit word Chakra literally translates to wheel or disk. In yoga, meditation, and Ayurveda, this term refers to wheels of energy throughout the body. There are seven main chakras, or energy centers, which align the spine, starting from the base of the spine through to the crown of the head.
Since everything is moving, especially energy, it’s essential that our seven main chakras stay open, aligned, and fluid. If there is a blockage, energy cannot flow.
This 7 Chakra Japa Mala is created using 37 different types of Gemstones. Each one of the Chakras is represented by different colored gemstones to help you find balance. Crystal Quartz is a powerful healing and energy amplifier to help remove the blockages.

This Japa Mala was handmade in our studio in Toronto, Canada with lots of love. We use the highest quality nylon and we place a knot every third bead which creates a unique and strong Mala. All Malas are different and special, variation in color and inclusions in the gemstones are natural. Please take off when swimming, showering, and during hot yoga as water can damage thread.
Your Mala will arrive wrapped in silk paper and in a very special, One-of-kind handmade bag. These bags, which are reversible, are made by a group of ladies from a village outside Calcutta, India out of recycled saris. It will have a handwritten tag with the names of the stones. We will also include a special card with the description of the metaphysical properties of the stones.
