Mandala Yoga recognises the classical elements; Fire, Earth, Air and Water as being connected to specific areas of the body and their associated chakras. This 2 hour workshop is designed to work deeply into the front body, taking us 360° around the mat, warming the body and exploring our spines. This flow will open and strengthen the muscles of your hip flexors and shoulders, preparing your whole front body to find greater ease in backbends. With a focus on opening the heart, you will be lovingly reminded that anything is possible when you are expanding from within and connected to your breath.
We will start with Pranayama, and end with elemental Yin Yoga, to help close areas of the body we are working. We will be looking at a variety of ways to open our spine and front body, engaging key muscles to create strength that supports us through our practice. After exploring a range of backbends suitable for every student, we will surrender into Yin.
After the class you will be treated with a delicious smoothie and vegan snacks from our favourite plant based brands to nurture the body and recharge your energies.
Sarah’s teaching style is fun, creative and always inclusive – yoga is for everybody. Sarah believes that yoga should be above all, playful. So while alignment plays an important role in her teaching, she keeps her classes fluid and explorative. With a focus on developing your active strength to support your practice, Sarah’s classes contain intricate sequences, strength building movements and a banging playlist.
