Honor Every Element

Panch Maha Elemental Yoga Classes

To grow the perfect Lotus you need to have the perfect measure of the Five Great Elements (Pancha Maha Bhutas). As you can imagine, too much sun, little water, hardened  soil and a cramped space  are not the ideal set up for a healthy Lotus; but have you ever considered the right measure of the elements for your own self? 

The right balance of the elements is another way of describing harmony; and harmony is another way of describing Yoga.

 

The list below gives descriptions of what elemental practices can do for you. These are not the actual names of our classes, but {you can see the class schedule here and} every type of class can be associated to one or more elements, as such:

Fire / Power

The fire element is all about passion, charisma, perseverance and Joy! It is also the main element associated with Purification and Transformation.

Earth / Core

The earth element is about grounding yourself in peace and integrity; Core strength that keeps you true to your core! Earth practices also help us to be accepting, supportive and feel a sense of belonging.

Air / Magic

Magic is in the Air, air element that is. We harness that magic thru the breath as we learn to control it with our mind. "Mind is the master of the emotions, breath is the master of the mind." -Hatha Yoga Pradipika

Water / Flow

Whether it is thru sports, dance or other forms of art in (e)motion, everyone loves to get into a meditative state of flow. In fact, the water element is the element of love; so maybe that is why we love swimming in it.

Space / Time 

In this busy, fast paced world it is easy to lose sight of the big picture and difficult to open up to the fullness of life. Space practices help us to motivationally open up, see the greater picture, and act confidently upon a continually renewed love for our life's purpose. "Where there is love, effort is rest and there is always time." ~Baha'i Writings
