Each day will begin with an early Elemental Energy Yoga Class that takes you into different themes of Natural wisdom and energetic development. They are often revelatory experiences as our Elemental balance is being reshuffled through particular asanas, mudras, music, mantras, pranayamas, visualisations, movements and meditations. After a healthy breakfast, there is an interactive and dynamic lecture on a host of subjects, from 5 Element Theory and The Seasonal Cycles, to Pratyahara, Yoga as Medicine, The Subtle Body and Vital Energy. The lectures aim to reveal the maps and guidelines for using Nature’s wisdom to help reveal your own. These Lectures contain a mix of information and practical experiences and demonstrations of how to read and work with your own Elemental balance. An invigorating morning will end with a vitalising lunch from the Mandala Kitchen, and then the afternoon is free for you to take long walks and swim at Mandarem`s tropical beach or embrace the random energies of India`s highly approachable local Goa. Mandalas garden is a super chilled place for down time too. When the warmth of the day is fading, an afternoon gathering will offer somatic practices, creative writing, improvisation, and dance processes, bodywork sessions and open interactive time. You will be free to participate in any open forums, or free to just observe as the days whim takes you. Early evening we will be practicing together in the Dome, drawing from a variety of Elemental Energy techniques, restoring the energy systems to a complete rest and rejuvenation. The Yin approach to every afternoon is vital to the next days endeavors, and are relaxed yet highly insightful practices.

The Mandala is a place of serendipitous magic and is an experience all of its own: a place to investigate modalities, music, and movement.

Comment
"I have not before experienced Yoga like this. To have understood how I limit my body with my thoughts, then to have found a way to work with those thoughts, has taken my Yoga practice to a whole new level. The wisdom is definately within.", Lisa Hickinbotham, Uk
