Mandala Vinyasa Journey Through The Elements #4: Air
Saturday 6th January 3-5pm with Jonelle Lewis
Following the Mayan calendar we will connect with the element of Air and the practice will focus on opening the heart and connecting to love and compassion. We will also use this practice to set intentions coming directly from our hearts as we start the New Year.
We will use techniques from the tantric, shamanic and traditional chinese medicine paths to cultivate liberation of the spine and shoulders. Starting with kriyas, pranayama and meditation to open the body and focus our attention to Anahata chakra, the heart chakra. We will then use Qi Gong and Yin yoga to open the body up subtly and work the heart and lung meridian systems. To finish we will practice a Mandala Flow moving 360 degrees around the mat and continue with heart and shoulder openers, backbends, arm balances and inversions.
The intention behind this workshop is to cultivate more love and compassion for ourselves and others by doing practices to strengthen the heart.
