MANDALA FLOW & MEDITATION
Committed to the practices of Yoga as a lifestyle and path, Kara deeply cares about her students and clients and this authentic love and support is evident in her teaching. She believes Yoga is a vehicle for personal development and growth, thus is committed to holding a safe and sacred space for her students. When you attend a class with her on O'ahu, you can expect classical education and instruction in yoga philosophy and breathwork, coupled with dynamic sequencing in a fluid, powerful flow style called Mandala.
Based on the teachings of Shiva Rea, Mandala Flow Yoga is a fairly brisk yet steady, safe vinyāsa flow that encompasses the entire yoga mat. You move in a circular pattern (hence the name Mandala, which means "circle" in Sanskrit), including side-to-side as well as front-back movement, and you experience pulsations and waves in the body. These full-body movements build strength in the core and hips, ring out the spine, and help to tone the legs. This is a sequence-heavy class, meaning that many postures will be linked together. The class ends with deep floor postures, breath work and meditation. You will leave feeling lighter, supported and uplifted.
