The Nature Within Us Exploring the qualities of the 5 elements through self-Shiatsu, movement and Yoga
About this Event

In this workshop we will explore the 5 elements in nature and how they expressed through our body to find harmony and balance within us and enhance our yoga practice.

Our body is charged with energy and its continuous flow is essential to maintain a balanced and a healthy state of being. In Eastern Philosophy the energy is expressed through pathways known as Meridians, which are divided into the five elements – Earth, Metal, Water, Wood, and Fire. Each element is expressed through different qualities, which we experience throughout our daily life.

We will explore and follow the physical location of the meridians on the body and practice how to balance the energy through self-bodywork technique (Shiatsu). We will continue to affect the energy through the moving body using imagery and light movement tasks to allow our bodies to open and embody the various qualities of the meridians such as – fluidity, grounding, compassion and adaptability to name a few. We will then practice some Yoga sequences and Asanas to experience the effects of the elements on our practice.

As we crave to find balance and harmony both physically and emotionally, this exploration will encourage participants to discover the five elements within them, to learn how to take advantage of their unique characteristics through the awareness of the meridians and to feel open to new possibilities in their Yoga practice to find a smooth sense of movement, inspiring our creative spirit.
