The 3rd annual Global Mala Boston occurred on September 20, 2009, to mark the U.N.'s International Day of Peace. Yogis convened on Boston's Common to practice yoga with some of the city's best teachers and support two charitable causes, Trees for the Future and the Food Project. Simultaneously, thousands of yogis throughout the world were doing the same thing.
