Prana Vinyasa Yoga for Balancing the Five Elements: Ether

The 5 Elements- The ancient sages who studied Ayurveda (holistic medical system practiced in India) came to the realization that consciousness is energy manifested through five basic principles or elements: Ether (space), Air, Fire , Water, Earth. They tell the story of Creation and explain our whole material and spiritual essence through the interaction of these elements.


Prana Vinyasa Yoga for the Elements - Prana Vinyasa Yoga is a creative and transformative practice that awakens the flow of vital power - prana. It is a dynamic style in which asanas blend seamlessly into one another, guided by the breath, while the mind remains at rest and in a state of deep awareness. Through a series of 5 practices, we will embody the flow of each of the Five Elements and examine our relationship with it and its manifestations on a physical and emotional level. We will use a series of asanas, pranayama, mudras, visualizations and meditative techniques that heals, balances and connects us to the energy of the elements. The focus is the art of namaskar - the flow of movement and breathing that we strive to turn into active meditation and a conscious act of connecting with Mother Nature.


Element Ether (space) - this is the subtle element and is related to spirituality, sense of connection, consciousness, communication and truth. When we are in imbalance we feel empty, misunderstood and isolated and it is difficult for us to see the meaning of our lives. Working with this element brings topics about our mission on earth, whether there is any higher power, what is the truth, how we relate and communicate with others and ourselves.


To explore the ether, we will gradually move from a more physical practice to a yoga-slower and meditative series of asanas, with a focus on thyroid posture, to meditation techniques, mantras and visualizations. Ether is affiliated with the Vishudhi Fifth Energy Center, which is responsible for our communication with others and our ability to express our beliefs so that we can understand and how we ourselves accept the truth of others.
