At mandala Soul you will find a wide range of different yoga classes. All our teachers are certified and trained in their specific style of yoga.
As a student you always go to your own bodys extent. We’re just here to guide you and yoga is supposed to be pleasure and not pain. You step on the mat for your own sake and there’s no one else you should be comparing to except yourself.
Some classes are divided into level 1 and 2 so that the class suited for the students previous experience. Other classes are adjusted to the experience of the students attending.
Hatha Yoga is one of the most popular styles of yoga. The word Ha means sun the word Tha means moon, so it’s basically about balancing the masculine(sun) and the feminine(moon) energies within ourselves. This is done by holding the asanas, or poses, during several breaths. By doing this we train and still our mind and at the same time we’re building strength. Pranayama or breathing exercises are also included in class, along with meditation. This will help us to still and calm our minds and to prepare for the asanas.
Suits: Everyone. Even if you every now and then will stumble upon a pose that you haven’t quite mastered yet = a good reason to practice at home.
Vinyasa Flow is a bit faster kind of yoga. Vinyasa literally means “to place in a special way” and focus is on combining movement with breath into a flow. Unlike Hatha Yoga we’re not very much static the poses but instead we move from position to position to the rhythm of our breath. A bit more physically challenging class where we build both strength and stamina.
Suits: Someone who tried yoga at least once. A little bit of ground physic is good but you will build it up if you keep coming to class!
Yin Yoga is our most calm style of yoga. We focus on relaxing and slowing down. Here we stay in the postures for up to 5 min and work our way into them slowly with the help of our breath. In this way we’re effecting the connective tissue of the body and prevent injury. A perfect add to an otherwise very active life style. All postures are done sitting or lying down and you don’t need any ground physic to participate. Just come and relax!
Kundalini Yoga unites body and mind to create an inner balance. It’s a bit different to other types of yoga because it’s a bit more spiritual. It contains everything that the yoga tradition has to offer; mantras, pranayama, bandhas(body locks), asanas and meditation.
Suits: Everyone; especially if you want a calmer practice, have ace in your body and looking to find both physical and mental relaxation.
