Founded by Julia Elders, MALA SHAKTI, is a small
gemstone & mala design studio. 


Julia Elders has dedicated herself to helping people transform their lives and to take charge of their personal healing.

Her hope is to support people along their path of self-discovery, ecstatic awakening, and deep connection to sat guru, the true teacher within, through the teachings of yoga, auyrveda and crystal energy healing.  She hopes that each person finds a more heightened awareness of their most true, divine nature. She is eternally grateful for the teachers in her life and their infinite inspiration.


Everything that happens in the universe begins with intention.  The sages of India observed thousands of years ago that our destiny is ultimately shaped by our deepest intentions and desires. The classic Vedic text known as the Upanishads declares, “You are what your deepest desire is. As your desire is, so is your intention. As your intention is, so is your will. As your will is, so is your deed. As your deed is, so is your destiny.”

It is my intention to help people manifest their destiny with a little help from mother Earth.  MALA SHAKTI is the fruit of this intention.
