The Mandala Preston CICYoga & Complementary Health Centre

 

Hello and Welcome to our Website...

 

The Mandala Preston is a 'NON-PROFIT' dedicated Yoga and Complementary Therapy Centre, supporting Mental Health.  We are based in the middle of Preston City Centre and have now been officially listed as a CIC (Community Interest Company).  The main charity supported by Mandala is 'Mind'.  The 'key' element of what we do is to help with all health aspects of the human being, which ultimately works with creating a balanced thinking mind.

 

We offer a range of classes for all levels and ability of student from beginners to advanced. Please see our timetable for something that will suit your needs. The Mandala Preston provides complementary therapies and supports orthodox medicine in the healing process of individuals.

 

Our aim is to reach out into the Community and provide a supportive place for Reflection, Transformation and Healing.

 

We have a spacious main studio with changing rooms, a smaller second studio, therapy rooms, waiting area, toilets and shower room. There is a wheelchair ramp for ease of access to the Therapy Suite and Studio 2 as required. Yoga mats and props are available at Mandala, so you only need to bring yourself, although if you prefer to use your own equipment, please feel free to bring this along with you.

 

The Mandala Preston is a place for enjoyment and to promote a healthier YOU!  By taking steps to achieving this, we hope to give you balance back into your life and a 'smile' on your face!

 

 

Mandala Origin

 

Mandala comes from the Sanskrit word for circle, connection, community. It also means entire world, centre of the Universe, magic circle, or healing circle. A mandala is a sacred symbol used for meditation, particularly in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. Though there are many kinds of mandalas, they are typically vibrant, colourful representations of the whole world. As one meditates on a mandala, one’s consciousness passes through outer protective circles (symbolising grasping at the surface or exterior of things), then enters square structures and inner gates that enclose the centre point or bindu (which symbolises the essence of life).

 

Many traditions in Western culture have their own sacred circles, like the medicine wheels used in Native American healing ceremonies and the talismans of blessing and protection found in many other religions and traditions.

We are now entering our fifth year to slowly and organically spread our wings at The Mandala.  With patience, we are seeing progress towards providing a unique place for you to drop into and chill out.  Your comments on the fab energy within Mandala are what I felt when I first walked into the building. Over the years it has been a building where people have been to, to enjoy themselves!  We plan to keep things simple, but with the essentials that make you feel at home.

Mandala aims to help you maintain your health and we support organisations doing the same.
