A Mandala Vinyasa journey through the wisdom of the Elements.
The course has evolved through creating a connection between each Element and its corresponding Chakra. The intention is to bring healing to our first four energy centers, which represents the surrendering of the ego identity to “a being of trust”. These four chakras relate to the corresponding 4 elements of Shamanism according to Mexica Tradition. The elements and prana points will be accessed through a Mandala Vinyasa Flow, each based on the 4 main group of muscles of the leg. This ceremonial work will also be reinforced with Mantra, Indigenas Dancing & sealed with Meditation.

- Mandala Yoga – Vinyasa Flow
This is how we will open the gate of our physical layer. The practice works towards a firm intention, such as element/ chakra/ group of muscles, following the main stucture of Ashtanga Vinyasa.
- Sun Salutes / Warm Up: done in a spiraling way around the mat, this is a preparation of the group of the muscles which will be observed.
- Standing / Seated: vinyasas of poses that continue massaging the group of muscles, here deeper contemplation will be reached.
- Closing Sequences: maximum contemplation and the sealing of energy through different methods.
The Methodology behind each sequence including its intention, will be described in detail.
- Muscle liberation through Yin Yoga & Meditation
Chi cultivation and the awareness of Prana will be the intention of these sessions. In order to access subtle elements such as the nature inside of us, introspection is required. During these sessions we will follow up with the group of muscles worked in the Mandala Flow. We will look in from different perspectives, trying to reach a deeper level of subtlety, following the premise “the stiller you can be, the deeper you can hear”.
- The Shamanic Part of The Course
We will awaken our energy with gratitude and joy in community by chanting powerful medicine songs as well as mantras in a unique way. Music and dance is the underlying essence in all spiritual traditions and cultures around the world. Sound is the primal vibration of the universe by which we reunite and harmonize.
We will also practice the Aztec dance honoring the elements and different power animals by forming a circle and beating with the sound of the drum. Dance it is known as a warrior spiritual practice.
- All together
The Mandala / body practices prepares the muscular activation. The Yin Yoga & Meditation creates deeper introspection, a transition from the outside to the inside. The Shamanic aspects of Mantra & Dancing will take us out of ourselves, they are ego dissolvers that connects us to our past generations.
