Mandala Vinyasa

SUITABLE FOR INTERMEDIATE 

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.

Warm Yin 

SUITABLE FOR ALL LEVELS

In Yin yoga the poses are held for a longer period of time, typically 3-5 minutes but sometimes longer. It aims to target the connective tissues such as the ligaments, rather than focus on the muscles. As a result, the poses held are more passive with little muscular engagement. This works more deeply into the body and leaves you with a deep feeling of calm and connectedness. Perfect if you want to explore the more grounded, cooling, calming side of yoga. This class is not a hot yoga class, it is however taught in a warmer temperature.

Dharma Yoga

SUITABLE FOR INTERMEDIATE

Dharma yoga includes a progressive series of vinyasa sequences designed to allow the free flow of prana energy up and down the spine and throughout the physical body and mind. The postures include stretching, twists, balancing poses, backbends and some inversions. Because Dharma Yoga has several series vinyasas, it can be practiced by yogis at the level appropriate to their skills.

Dharma yoga, though, is more than the physical practice. It incorporates all of the eight limbs of yoga as outlined in the Yoga Sutras. Specifically, Dharma yoga includes pranayama breathing exercises, meditation and even instruction on yogic philosophy and lifestyle with the ultimate goal reaching Self-realization, or knowledge of the true Self.
