Mandala is a vinyasa flow class, where the sequence is designed to move 360 around the mat. Classes are based on the 4 basic elements – Fire, Water, Earth and Air, as accordingly with the Mayan calendar, each day is related with an element. Each element links to a specific area of the body, so we will flow and move with the breath, working on that particular target area:
🌬️ Air – backbends, opening up the shoulders and quads. Energetically we will be activating Anahata Chakra, related with our social identity and self love, finding space in our hearts.
🔥 Fire – spinal twists, glutes and IT band. Energetically we will be activating Manipura Chakra, our solar plexus, related with our will power and ego identity.
💧 Water – hips and groin. Energetically we will be activating Svadhisthana, the Sacral Chakra, our source of movement and connection, related with our reproductive system.
🌳 Earth – hamstrings. Energetically we will be activating Muladhara, the Root Chakra, related with grounding.
The practice usually starts and ends with a short Yin session so we prepare and “close” the areas of the body that will be working on.
Suitable for all levels.
