This three-day intensive dive into Embodying the Elements, is an invitation to explore and cultivate grace and ease while deepening into the yoga practice. As part of the Transformation Cycle, the group brings important aspects of physical rejuvenation into the five-week process.
Yoga raises awareness in daily life. It is a clear mirror reflecting the way one inhabits the space within. By shedding layers of contraction, the simplicity of the moment can be embraced.
Through an integrative blend of hatha yoga, meditation, free dance and pranayama exercises we tap into the teachings of the five elements- Space, Air, Water, Fire and Earth.
Each of these elements adds unique qualities to one’s experience of life. Together, they form the basis for one’s connection with all that is.
The workshop will begin with receiving space as the primary element, within which the four secondary elements emerge. Moving onto Earth and Fire energies, the workshop will hold space for cultivating the essence of grounding and using tapas to awaken the inner fire. The group will conclude with an exploration of Air and Water influenced practices, to allow prana (life force) to flow freely.
The morning sessions consist of a strong yang practice to invoke Fire energy, detoxify and strengthen the body. The afternoon practice complements the active yang practice, giving the gift of melting and softening into a relaxed, restorative practice supported by props.
“Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self.”
