Ananda Mandira is a yoga studio offering sound therapies and treatments in the shopping centre Montebiarritz between San Pedro and Estepona (1st exit after Benahavis). My name is Sofi Gibson and I am very pleased to offer a space where we can meet, enjoy and share our passion for Yoga and music using antique instruments which I found during my studies. My aim is to allow people to enjoy and use this space in order to develop their individual and spiritual ways of life. With the help of creative and transformative exercises, designed with the focus on respiration, asanas, visualization and meditation, mantras, games and massages, we achieve flexibility, stability, openness, connection and deep relaxation of the body, the mind and the soul. That is the benefit of yoga. Yoga has taken me to other dimensions, physically and mentally. Thanks to the tools of the thousand years old yoga practice I learned to structure my life and could clearly choose between important and less important things. Yoga is like tool box in which you can find all the things you need for reparing your defects, construct your own temple and achieve a union of the divine. I started Ashtanga Yoga classes in Marbella 15 years ago and I still remember this sensation of release and of the feeling that everything is possible after each class. The different Yoga teachers gave me an understanding of Ashtangayoga, Iyengaryoga, Sivandandayog, Anusarayoga and Kundaliniyoga.
