Mandala - Elemental Flow

With Malika

Join Malika for a two hour long Yoga Mandala experience,
on June 9th from 14:00 to 16:00.

This immersive experiences brings together
Breathwork, meditation, and a nourishing asana practice.

Mandala is a style of sequencing created by Yoga teacher Dulce Aguilar.
The practitioner will flow hereby between the front and back of the mat, changing direction constantly, and thus challenging strength, balance, and coordination.

This style is following an elemental theory of water, earth, air, and fire. Malika has put her own spin on this style by creating flows that not only are inspired by the energy of a specific element, but also correspond to the seasons of the year. 



Malika will create a unique and sensory experience through a carefully curated music playlist, different coloured lights and smells for the season, as well as live music during Shavasana.

The Elements and the Seasons

14:00 - 16:00

Fire element - summer

November 24

Throughout the four workshops we will be traveling through different parts of our bodies.

We start with the air season, focusing on our heart and back.
The hot weather of summer calls in the fire element, and with a focus on twists along our spine.
During autumn we will dive into our back body and the sensation of grounding to honour the earth element.
We will finish the workshop series with our winter season in November, focusing on our groin and the hips.
By the end of 2024 we will have travelled through all the major parts of our muscles, worked with the four elements and called them into our practice.

Every class will be fundamentally different. The flowiness of the water-winter energy, the fiery energy of summer, the opening and lightness of air, and the grounding of earth, are all going to create different sensations in your body.

We can’t wait to welcome you into this deep exploration of your body in line with the seasons of the year.

UPCOMING SEASON


Fire ELEMENT - Summer

As we move into the summer season, we are connecting to our inner fire. This season and the element of fire brings out our inner heat. We get the chance to shed all the winter layers of hibernation and stagnation. The fire elements work deeply with our spine and digestive system. During the mandala class, we will focus on twisting postures, which equally stimulates our abdominal region and our spine.
Join Malika for a 2-hour practice in which we will stir our inner fire through breathwork, asana practice, and meditation.
