When the five elements are out of balance, you feel out of balance, leading to suffering physically, emotionally or mentally. With Five Element Yoga®  practice, you will learn how to guide yourself and your students back into harmony — with the Five Elements, and also with the corresponding koshic levels of being, vayu energy currents, dosha constitution and chakra wheels of energy.

Tap into your greatest potential, giving your natural constitution a chance to come into a gracious flow with life so that you may enjoy increased health, happiness, peace, and invigorating serenity.
