Spring Seasonal Yoga Master Class
with Laura Wills
Seasonal Yoga is inspired by ancient Chinese and Indian health systems and is a gentle practice specifically designed to send energy flowing through the meridian lines (energy pathways of the body).
From a physical view point the practice re-vitalizes our systems and organs which have energies corresponding to different seasons of the year - putting the mind and body where it is supposed to be - in harmony with nature.
By making Seasonal Yoga and mindfulness an integral part of your daily routine you will be protecting your health, enhancing your energy and will improve your general well being!
Let Laura take you on a journey through out the year giving you many tools for the months ahead.

THE COMPLETE MANDALA SERIES 2020
with Malin Johansson
The methodology behind this series of workshops is based on honouring the ever-changing energy in the here and now.
Working with the Mayan calendar, which operates under the principle of going with the flow of the specific energy of the day, each of the below workshops have been scheduled to work with the energy of the four elements.
The intention of the Mandala Vinyasa practice is to honour the creative energy in all its manifestations. It opens us to a deeper level or introspection as we move and expand around the mat. It allows us to access a deeper level of awareness than what we might experience through a more linear practice.
The power of the practice resides in the fact that it follows a specific purpose and methodology. This can be a focus towards an element, a chakra or a muscle group. The clear intention of the practice allows us to revisit groups of muscles or target areas of the body that helps us reach our goal. This repetition is a constant message that starts with Yin Yoga, runs through Sun Salutations and is reinforced in different perspectives in both the standing and seated series.
