Earth Wisdom Yoga presents: Elemental Cohesion, A Study of the 5 Elements as Bodies of Wisdom

Over the course of 5 hours of content, delivered every 6.5 weeks, for the period of one year, participants will absorb and study the content at their pace. Materials are theirs to keep. 

Participants will learn how the 5 elements (space, air, fire, water, and earth) are experienced as the organs of perception, as sensations and as pathways of intelligence leading to a deeper sense of embodied wholeness. 

Elemental Coherence: An Embodied Study of the 5 Elements

What is Coherence?

A state of internal harmony, experienced as a state of feeling unified

What are the 5 Elements?

Space (consciousness/awareness), Air (thoughts), Fire (inspiration), Water (emotions), Earth (physical body)

What Does Embodiment Mean?

A practice that creates a concrete or perceptible feeling in your body

How Will We Do This?

Through direct teaching via Live (all calls will be recorded) calls, guided meditations, breathing techniques, mudras (hand gestures that can be felt in the body, like tiny yoga postures), a little bit of thoughtful self-reflection, and routines that change with the seasonal rhythms of the Earth

What is My Time Investment?

You will receive approximately 5 hours of material every 6 1/2 weeks. You can use the material to create a daily routine that lasts as long as you like. The program is designed to take you on a one-year journey, April 29th, 2019 through to April 27th, 2020. The material will be packaged in 6 1/2 week increments, timed to deliver to you 8 times over the wheel of the year. 

How Much Will This Cost?

During this training, you will learn how to set up classical restorative poses using props (blankets, blocks, bolsters, sand bags and eye pillows). You will be introduced to the sciences of fascia release, ayurveda, subtle body systems, chakras, the endocrine system, tantric philosophy and shamanic practices of Earth healing. We will use all of these modalities to bring a state of ease to the mind, body and spirit.

A Sample of the Curriculum:

1. set people up using the props; modify the set-up for injuries, pregnancy and different body types
2. make props out of everyday household items
3. learn how to protect yourself as a teacher from the energy people release when they are relaxing
4. become guides for people; hold space for them so they can relax and let go of tension
5. see how ayurveda is reflected in your students and in you as a teacher
6. practice teaching people how to set themselves up with the props
7. lead meditations that alternately cool, warm, collect, expand, relax, deepen people's awareness on an energetic and collective level while they are resting in the poses
8. structure, sequence, pick music for and develop your own class
9. stimulate the parasympathetic system so that the sympathetic system lets go of flight, fright and freeze mode (in other words how to get the body to stop operating in continue stress mode)
10. explore what chakras, koshas, nadis are and how they relate to the endocrine system, glands and internal organs

You do not have to be a yoga teacher to take this training. Anyone can learn how to create restorative space. This is very useful for anyone who is, to name a few examples, a caregiver, teacher, trainer, parent, counselor, nurse, friend.

Description: Yoga Nidra is the art of lucid dreaming. It is a method of activating the inherent potential we all have for remembering our soul's purpose and drawing it out of the subconscious realm. We can use Yoga Nidra to explore our layers of consciousness, plant specific goals or intentions into the deeper layers of our awareness, and break down obstacles, fears and emotions that prevent us from living out our fullest expressions of wholeness. 

In this training you will learn the 8 steps of Yoga Nidra facilitation and experience them via a Master class. You will take home scripts for Yoga Nidra via MP3 files and hard copy documents. You will also learn how to set up Nidra experiences for yourself and others using astrology and moon phases that support optimal lucid dreaming times of the month and year.


Advanced Philosophy, Meditation, Energy Awareness and Yoga Instruction

Fee: $75.00/hour (this can be private or shared between a maximum of 10 people at a time)
