Ayurveda & The Five Elements: Earth
With Emily Reed
27 April 2018, 19:30–21:00
The first of a series of creative Yoga & Ayurveda sessions from Emily Reed.
Experience a Friday evening of explorative movement and yoga asana to soul filling sounds, mantra and poetry. Embody and balance the qualities of the five elements (earth, water, fire, air and space/ethers).
Equanimous living is a result of balance in the five elements according to Ayurvedic philosophy. The five elements are present in our physical body, emotions, mental state – in every aspect of our existence.
In each of these sessions Emily will tune you in to the element of focus through the practices - including yoga asana, free movement, breath work, sound, self inquiry and journaling.
EARTH is where we begin the journey. Earth offer qualities of: solidarity, support, foundation etc. When earth is balanced in the mind there is a sense of security, stability, structure.
Observe the present state of the earth element in the body, mind and emotions. The session is designed to cultivate a harmonious and equanimous earth element.
Join Emily for an intriguing, experiential evening of Ayurveda (the science of living) and arrive at the weekend with serenity.
Meet the Teachers
Meet Michael James Wong, founder of BOYS OF YOGA
“To most guys, yoga is pink lycra and vegan chicks. It’s breathing deeply while doing poses named after animals and feelings. It’s done in dimly lit rooms with candles and incense, followed by gluten-free cupcakes and kale smoothies. And if that’s your mentality then you’re not alone. But it doesn’t mean it’s right,” says Michael Wong, founder of BOYS OF YOGA. Read the full interview here:
