About Moving Mandalas


Moving Mandalas : Unlocking the Movement Mosaic


The Mandala is a heart exploding, behind the back, hoop move. On it's own it is a whirlwind of hoop dance fun but when you explore the multitude of techniques and transitions that compliment the Mandala you will be opening up to a new world of movement with your hoop. In this workshop we will move in, out and all around the Mandala and explore creative variations of the move.

First let's roll through some of the original forms of the Mandala move. Breaking down each move and also exploring ways to transition into the moves will help you to access a more fluid style and upper body release. Then we will discover variations using one and two hands. This is where you can really get creative and start to blend the moves together.

Mandalas really bring focus to the shoulders, arms, chest, ribs and neck so let's finish with a stretch to release any built up tension in those areas so you can feel more mobility with each practice.
