Mandala Vinyasa Masterclass with Madeline Diaz Meiners
Time & Location
About the Event
This Mandala Vinyasa Masterclass, focusing on the element of Fire, follows the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Five Element philosophy to enable healing through the energetic meridian system.
By stimulating the meridians of the heart, heart protector (pericardium in western medicine), the small intestine and the triple heater, we will harnise the physical, mental, energetic and emotional qualities of the Fire element within the internal landscape of our bodies.
Emotionally the element of Fire corresponds to joy. When our Fire element is out of balance, joy may be displaced with depression and anxiety. Healthy Fire gives us the capacity and enthusiam to fulfill our goals, reach our desires and find what we seek, giving us a warm and steady zest for life.
The practice of Mandala is a journey through the self, to the self. Our masterclass will start with a preparatory practice of Yin. Through gentle compression along the Meridians of the heart, heart protector, small intestine, and the triple burner, we will remove stagment energy to encourage the flow of Qi into the relevant areas of the body, working into the deep layers of the fascia in perparation for the Mandala.
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 the Mandala stimulates the production of Qi, raising its vibrational flow and encouraging the deeper latent layers of trauma held within the deeper aspects of the self to surface.
The practice will conclude with Yin yoga targetting the Water element; the meridians of the Kidneys and Urinary Bladder to pacifiy and ground the Fire within the system. This final part of our Mandala journey embodies the practice of compassion and forgiveness, encouraging spiritual growth through the developement of new patterns and behaviours.
Limited to 13 students, this workshop is suitable for anyone with previous Vinyasa Flow experience.
