The elements: Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether are inherent in nature and within each individual and their influence affects us in many different ways. Referred to in Yoga as the ‘Tattwas’ also related to the Chakras and in Ayurveda as the ‘Doshas’ we will discover how each element manifests in our lives in the following areas:
From this exploration and by keeping a journal, we will gain insight and inspiration into our creative nature and a deeper understanding of ourselves and our interactions with the world around us
Each day one element will be featured and explored in the Yoga and Meditation Class and the Ayurveda and Yoga principles relating to that element will be discussed further throughout the day. A Yoga Nidra (deep relaxation) will be given every day, and a session on Pranayama (breathing practises). Weather permitting, discussions will take place outside under trees or shade connecting on a deeper level with nature. The afternoon will be spent reflecting, writing in your journal and working on your Mandala.
Towards the end of the week each person will have developed a deeper perspective, awareness and understanding of themselves and will take home with them some personal Yoga and Ayurveda practises and lifestyle options to incorporate into their daily lives, using the tools of Yoga and Ayurveda to help balance and align the body on all levels.
Spending time in nature and tuning into the elements helps create an opportunity to discover and unlock a deeper understanding of ourselves and how we interact in the world around us.
By awakening our true nature the expression of innate creativity is able to blossom and grow.
