all about your wellness
- all about the mala -
The Mala Studio’s name is derived from “The Mala Bead” a prayer bead used in Hindu
and Buddhist prayer ceremonies and meditation, similar to what we know as a Rosary
Bead. Our name reflects this mindfulness and spirituality but it was actually inspired
by the philosophical interpretation of a young Indian philosopher we met in India
back in 2015 rather than by the bead itself.
“As long as it is sacred, anything can be your Mala” he explained.
A Mala Bead or any Mala, is a means for you to channel your energy on a prayer,
chant or mantra, and one would be mistaken to assume that in the absence of an
adorned bead, they cannot pray. “A letter from a loved one, a stone, even a
picturesque scene can be your Mala, so long as it is speaks to your soul,” and just like
that “The Mala” came to be.
We started with one goal that holds true until today - making our clients happy in a
one hour window. With that goal in mind, we carefully thought out every single detail
that followed, carving out roles for ourselves and learning as we go. We are proud to
say that in our four short years, we’ve seen clients become avid practitioners and
some have even become certified instructors who now teach at The Mala. We’ve
hosted workshops with both Egyptian and international instructors, attracting clients
in Egypt as well as from abroad. We’ve collaborated with Egyptian brands in order to
deliver the best of what Egypt has to offer to our clients, from yoga mats to natural
disinfectants. We’ve handpicked instructors who represent the essence of The Mala.
Growing from 4 to 20, our family of instructors is truly dedicated to sharing their
knowledge with clients as well as with one other. We support local initiatives and
charities, and aspire to continue using our platform not just to promote wellness, but
also social responsibility.
Our studio is open to clients of all levels throughout the week. We cater to both early
birds and night owls, adventurous, spontaneous clients as well as those who prefer a
bit of structure and routine in their lives. We offer private classes both for clients with
special medical conditions as well as those who just prefer one-on-one sessions.
We’ve also expanded into the virtual world, offering a range of online live classes, as
well as specialized programs.
