Five Element Yoga® is a potent practice that weaves together yoga postures, breathing, mudras, meditation, self-massage, guided meditation and creative integration practices to realign you with the rhythms of nature. This exploration and celebration of yoga is rooted in yoga and yoga therapy, Ayurveda, and Traditional Chinese Medicine, and was developed by Jennifer Reis.
Beyond an ordinary training, this is a time for deep practice, reflection and learning, cultivating personal inquiry and experience to transform your own life and the lives of your students. By embodying the five elements with yoga, you will take your teaching to a higher level, awakening your inner radiance as a yogi and teacher.
Five Element Yoga can balance and nourish at every level of one’s multi-dimensional being, bringing a state of harmony and health within, in order to flow with the cadence and rhythms of nature.
In this training you will learn and and experience the art, science and philosophy of the five elements in a multi-faceted inquiry that allows the essence of the elements to establish and flower from within.
The model of the five elements corresponds directly to the major yogic models including the five koshas, five kleshas, five prana vayus, three doshas, and the seven chakras. By unraveling each elements’ parallel kosha, vayu, dosha and chakra, we are able to unlock the door to deeper inquiry and exploration of our true Self.
When your elements are balanced, you are in harmony within yourself, and can feel qualities of stability, flowing grace, vitality, expansion, and inner wholeness within yourself and the universe. When the elements are out of balance, equilibrium is disrupted and you can become out of sync with yourself and the natural world.
