encircling the mandala

The mandala vinyasa practice encourages you to explore every element of yourself, to discover your inherent nature and observe how movement compliments or challenges your true self. Based on the Mayan calendar, we will visit a different element each day and awaken it’s energy through movement, breath and meditation. This is a beautiful practice to help you reconnect with nature and find a deeper appreciation of the world around you, ultimately leading to a feeling of greater wellbeing.

Bingin Retreat is a stunning eco-inspired luxury estate hidden away in the hills, clifftops and white sand beaches of Bukit Peninsula in the southern tip of Bali. This amazing 12-bedroom eco lodge is located very close to Bingin Beach, a famous surf spot, and it features traditional Javanese Joglo houses crafted out of recycled teak wood.

Katarina Rayburn | Follow Kat @katarinarayburnyoga

As a physics graduate and trained actress, making the transition to full time yoga teacher wasn't the obvious choice. However, it was after discovering a strong yang style of yoga in London, and then traveling to India to explore the lighter practice of Sivananda yoga that she realised what an integral part of her physical and mental wellbeing it had become. She then returned to India a year later to complete her 200hr Yoga Teacher Training in Ashtanga and Ashtanga Vinyasa (Rocket) with The Yoga People, who themselves were taught by Larry Schultz the pioneer of Rocket yoga. Katarina immediately began teaching yoga full time and by 2017 had completed 500hrs of advanced Teacher Training with her teachers Jamie and Dulce, The Yoga People, in Ashtanga, Rocket, Yin & Mandala Vinyasa. Katarina continues to build her advanced teacher training hours as expanding her knowledge, to pass on to her students is something she’s very passionate about. She has completed 50hrs of advanced adjusting and anatomy with Ambra Vallo and 50hrs of Progressive Ashtanga Vinyasa with David Kyle.
