The Intention of the Mandala Vinyasa practice is to honor the creative energy in all its manifestations. The practice integrates the spiral patterns that nature uses to shape and create the material and energetical substances into our bodies. It opens us into deeper introspection as we move and expand around the mat, while exploring circular movements with our bodies. It leads us into places that perhaps our awareness would not have access to by following a linear pattern. The power of this practice resides in the fact that it follows a specific purpose and methodology. This can be a peak asana, a specific chakra or a particular element. The clear intention of the practice allow us to revisit groups of muscles or target areas of the body that will help us reach our goal. This repetition is a constant massage that starts with the Sun Salutes or Warm Up and is reinforced in different perspectives in the Standing and Seated Series, creating familiarity and comfort in its objective. Why is this class extended to 1hr and 15m minutes and who is it suitable for? Mandala Vinyasa at our studio is broken down into 6 segments, all equally important for optimum physical, mental and emotional enhancement. 1. Each class starts in seated meditation (5 minutes) 2. Preparatory Yin, focusing on opening up the fascia within the target areas of the body encouraging increased range of flexibility. (15 minutes) 3. Mandala Vinyasa, creating the heat and encourage the free flow of prana / Qi throughout the energetic planes of the body through dynamic flow. (20 minute) 4. Standing sequence - static held poses for 5 breathes developing muscular strength and improving balance. (10 minutes) 5. Closing Yin - counterposing physically or balancing energetically the muscle groups of meridians of the previous aspects of practice. (20 minutes) 6. Savasana! If you have previous Vinyasa experience under your belt, this one is a MUST MUST! Come along and give it a go.
