Journeying through The Pancha Mahā-Bhūtas – The 5 Great Elements

Within the microcosm and wonderment of our body we replicate the most fundamental element components of this planet – prthivi: earth, āpas: water, agni: fire, vayu: wind, ākāśa: ether – and at different times the different elements maybe more or less dominant and affect our energetic, mental and emotional

states of being.

Focusing on these Pancha Mahā-Bhūtas which are used in many traditional systems of natural healing, particularly Ayurveda, we will weave our way through these elements within a varied yogasana practice, exploring their unique nature within our body and mind and how they can enhance our inner sense of stability, fluidity, empowerment, compassion, and openness.

Participants will explore:

- how to connect to the energy feel of the elements to help bring about balance and well being
- the use the elements as inspiration for movement sources to create a varied and expansive quality and range of motion through asana and pranayama practices.
- the connection between the elements and the chakras

The workshop will include:

- pranayama
- dynamic asana
- partner work
- introspection
- journaling
- restorative poses
- meditation
- relaxation

Looking forward to welcoming you,

SYC + Jean Hall
