Mandala Vinyasa & Yin Yoga
All forms of Yoga can be described as Yin or Yang based on which tissues of the body they target. A practice that focuses on exercising the muscles and moving blood in Yang. A practice that focuses on connective tissues is Yin.
At Eirian's Mandala Vinyasa & Yin class the two styles of yoga will be intelligently blended together through a firm intention, such as an element (Fire, Air, Water, Earth) or Chakra.
You will start the practice by awakening your body slowly through deep, long held Yin Yoga postures focusing on a specific group of muscles, preparing you for the more dynamic, Yang like – Mandala Vinyasa flow.
Following the main structure of Ashtanga Vinyasa, The Mandala Sun Salutes will move you in a spiralling way, 360 degrees around the mat – honouring the spiral patterns that nature uses to shape and create all the material and energetic substances in our bodies.
With a fun loving spirit, Eirian ensures her classes are playful and accessible, creating a safe environment where students can move freely, reconnect to themselves & feel empowered through their practice.
Mixed intermediate class - it's advised that if you're a complete beginner, that you become familiar with Vinyasa Flow before atteneding due to the fast pace of the Mandala Vinyasa.
