Journeying through The Pancha Mahā-Bhūtas – The 5 Great Elements of Life
Sept 25th 2018, 7:30-9:30pm at the beautiful 42acres in Shoreditch
£25 – to book please click here
Within the microcosm and wonderment of our body we replicate the most fundamental element components of this planet – prthivi: earth, āpas: water, agni: fire, vayu: wind, ākāśa: ether – and at different times the different elements maybe more or less dominant and affect our energetic, mental and emotional states of being.
Focusing on these Pancha Mahā-Bhūtas which are used in many traditional systems of natural healing, particularly Ayurveda, we will weave our way through these elements within a varied yogasana practice, exploring their unique nature within our body and mind and how they can enhance our inner sense of stability, fluidity, empowerment, compassion, and openness.

The heart is as the sun whose energy supports and radiates throughout the whole body. “As every living thing on the earth depends on the light and heat of the sun, so every living cell of our bodies depend on the immense living energy of the heart...” (Miranda Tufnell). And although the heart is our circulatory system’s centre it is not just purely a mechanical pump – its cells register and respond to all that takes place within our own body and the outer world.
During this daylong workshop we’ll be guided through a deep slow flow asana session and pranayama heart breathing practices to help renew energy, reconnect to the hearts’ essence + revitalise the whole body.
Yogaria Aerial Yoga Workshops
Dates to be confirmed
Classes and workshops draw upon the authentic yogasana system and integrate it with the principals of aerial training using a rigged silken cocoon material, which stretches organically yet has tremendous strength, like another skin, to harness, support and lift us from the ground.
Every session begins with gentle mat based asana work to strengthen and safely prepare the body and mind for the challenges of aerial work. We then move on to develop the practice in to fluid sequences using the cocoon alternatively with floor work to both elevate and ground.
Fun and challenging as well as restorative and gentle, Yogaria Aerial Yoga invites you to develop your confidence, strength and agility whilst deepening your yoga practice mentally and physically both on and off the mat.
Important Notes on Aerial Yoga workshops: Aerial work is strong, so expect to be challenged, stretched and strengthened to the core!
Mat work and partner work are both integral parts of aerial practice, so please come prepared to work on the yoga mat as well as in the air, and to share the practice and work with others.
Please also bring along extra clothing: one long and one half-sleeved top (no vests) and a long or knee length bottom (not baggy) to layer yourself with, so as to avoid friction of the skin with the cocoon
