Ayurveda and Yoga are inseparable branches of the same tree of ancient wisdom. Ayurveda describes 5 Elements, into which all of nature can be categorised and by understanding these elements, we are able to find balance in our own lives.
- Earth: grounding, stable, nurturing and static
- Water: flowing, emotional, transparent and reflective
- Fire: power, force, movement, commitment and energising
- Air: light, heady and mobile
- Ether: spacious, subtle and pure
Through these elements we shall explore yoga practice and how it can affect our attitude and mood.
During this 6-week course we will explore these 5 Elements and consider how these Elements are present in our yoga practice, through physical Asana and also through our mental state and our attitude.
We will also utilise Essential Oils to include olfactory resonance with the Element being explored each week before exploring a fully integrated session in the final week.
Through the course of this intimate workshop you will be given further reading advice, handouts and free samples of Essential Oils in order to be able to deepen their practice between the weekly sessions.
This is an open level course and there will be options for all levels. Beginners are welcome but should have some experience of yoga. No prior knowledge of Ayurveda or Yoga philosophy is required.
