Breath with the Elements

Understanding our connection to the five elements helps us find our balance.  I feel like I connect to these elements through my Ayurvedic understanding of them. As I tune into how I feel I can use the elements as descriptors of what I feel in my body. They give me metaphors and visuals that guide me back to my centre.

This was recorded at the beginning of the “Off The Mat” class at Alchemy Yoga in Sept. What followed was a stimulating and thought provoking conversation on how each of experiences the elements in our own bodies. The audio is not perfect, but the sensations are visceral.

Union in Breath

Yoga means Union. Translating that to something tangible is achieved when we can experience that union. That is why I love these experiential breath mediations. They are so much more powerful than trying to explain something in an essay or facebook post. Connect to the definition of yoga, to the union that it speaks of with this 13 minute experience. Sit with your body, your mind, and your heart to see and feel the language of their wisdom. Get acquainted with the sensations of the body, the emotions of the heart and the rationality of the mind. The combined wisdom from these innate sources is astounding. Enjoy.
