MANDALA also has a Facebook page
Welcome to The Mandala Preston CIC, Preston's hub of Yoga and Complementary Therapy. We're here to support your wellbeing!
We're a welcoming group of teachers and therapists offering Yoga classes, meditation, mindfulness, massage, counselling and sound therapy.
We’re a 'NON-PROFIT' CIC (Community Interest Company) supporting Mental Health in Preston City Centre and linked to the Charity 'Mind'
Our aim is to help you maintain physical, mental & emotional health. We support orthodox medicine in the healing process by use of appropriate Complementary Therapies. We reach out into the Community and provide a supportive place for Reflection, Transformation and Healing.
There are two studio spaces with changing rooms. We also have a therapy suite, plus waiting area, toilets and shower room.
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. There are many kinds of mandalas, they are typically 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 entering our eighth 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.
