The Inspired Collection comes from my desire to honor women who have served as mentors and guides to me in some way. Whether they have been deeply involved in my evolution or have acted as lights in the distance that helped me find my own path. I also use this special collaborative effort with some of my favorite women to give back. Fifteen percent of the profit from each special Mala sold in this collection is donated to a charity of the Inspirational Woman’s choosing.
Chrissy Carter was another of my very first teachers and an assistant in my first 200 Hour Teacher Training in 2006. Eleven years later, she is inspiring and teaching new teachers more than ever at YogaWorks in New York City, and elsewhere around the world. Her teaching style is an extension of her personal practice — passionate, deliberate, sincere, and light-hearted. I have found her classes to be the perfect place to realign myself body and mind.
Chrissy has chosen Bent On Learning to benefit from a portion of the sales of this mala. Bent On Learning is a nonprofit organization committed to teaching yoga to New York City public school children. They bring yoga to as many students as possible—not after school, but right there, in the classroom, where the learning happens.
