What do you know about Universal Yoga? Would you like to understand it more deeply? Universal's intent is to create a unified state in our physical, energetic and mental bodies. One of the tools we use to create this balance is a cross mat Mandala Practice. Please, join me as I lead a yoga mandala practice Saturday, March 23 from 4:30 to 7pm @oyayogastudio in Alpharetta.
Similar to the Tibetan Mandala practice where a disciple sells all worldly possessions to make an to their teacher, we create an offering of sorts too in our yoga Mandala. By harnessing our physical, energetic and mental energies through asana (physical postures), pranayama (breathing techniques), mantra (auditory techniques) and yantra (visual techniques) followed by Meditation, we offer the merits of our practice to those we may be able to serve as they too seek a more unified state leading to a return to inner peace.
The intention of our Mandala being offered at the beginning of Spring is to seed the growth we are creating in our personal lives as well as in our surrounding yoga community .
I hope you will consider joining in this beautiful and deeply meaningful practice. May we create unity within ourselves and our community. I will be offering a Mandala on each of the cross quarters this year. As a community, we can witness the growth of the "seeds" we planted this spring throughout the year. Our Mandala practice will be followed by refreshments and fellowship. Bring 2 yoga mats. Some yoga experience is recommended. Reach out to Tommasina at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns. Please, pre-register as we have a limited number of spaces available. Register online or by phone.
Future dates for Solstice/Equinox Mandalas June 22, Sept 21, and December 21 .
