Second Practice / Integration
A mandala is a geometric pattern that represents the universe. In a mandala practice, we are going to integrate in all directions and all perspectives. This is going to bring us into a deeper awareness which we may not find in a linear pattern.
The mandala is based in the 4 elements as a system that brings in Earth, water, fire and air and in the same order of intensity. Guided by the Tzolkʼin, Dulce uses this Mayan calendar to see which element is on what specific days, an approach of equanimity.
We will group the body in 4 different segments, each relating to an element. 4 different routines targeting a 4 different groups of muscles.
