The Global Mala Project (www.globalmala.org) seeks to unite the global yoga community and form a human “mala around the earth,” as people practice yoga in cycles of 108.

Over 35 countries, hundreds of yoga studios and thousands of yoga practitioners will participate, raising funds and awareness for some of the most essential issues of our times such as global warming and youth aids.

Steve Ilg’s HIGH PERFORMANCE Yoga is part of a worldwide yoga practice in which yoga communities across the world will simultaneously form a mala, or prayer, around the earth by performing various versions of 108 sun salutations.

If possible, coach ilg suggests a donation of $5.00 be Gifted to the nonprofits warchild.org and/or youthaids.org
