Mandala Practice – Vinyasa Flow. The practice will work towards a firm intention, in this case a specific Element following the main structure of Ashtanga Vinyasa.
- Sun Salutes / Warm Up: done in a spiralling way around the mat. This is a preparation of the group of the muscles which open the gates of the energy centres to work.
- Standing / Seated: vinyasas set of poses that continue to massage the specific group of muscles chosen. Deeper meditation will be reached in this stage.
- Closing Sequences: maximum contemplation and the sealing of energy through different methods.
Mandala Methodology. During this session, you will learn how to sequence a class in a Mandala Format. The 4 vignettes of the practice (Sun Salutes, Standing, Seated & Closing) will be explained through lectures and group exercises.
Practicum. This is the coming together of each day, the moment to feel what we learned. As a group we will practice the class that we have designed in the previous “Mandala Methodology” session.
