The Art of Masterful Living: Embodying The Five Elements Through Yoga

All Levels Students, Teachers, Therapeutics, Philosophy, Anatomy

Todd Norian - TH1NOR

We are all made of the five elements: earth, water, fire, air, and sky. Masterful living is achieved when these elements are balanced within. When out of balance, you may feel "contracted" (too much earth); "under water" emotionally stressed out (too much water); unmotivated (not enough fire) or overworked (too much fire); scattered and fearful (too much air), or spacey and ungrounded (too much sky). During this intensive, learn the yoga philosophy behind the five elements and practice an inspiring sequence of alignment-based, therapeutic postures that brings a balance of strength, flexibility, and balance. The Ashaya Yoga® method brings about a flowing integration of all five elements that leaves you feeling strong, confident, peaceful, openhearted, and ready to engage with life from a place of worthiness.
