Zen Yoga helps you live the story of the 5 elements
The Ancient Masters of the East observed recurring patterns in nature, medicine, music, human affairs, and all aspects of life. They categorized these observations into the Five Phases, or Elements. Each Element holds distinctive characteristics, attributes, tendencies, strengths, and weaknesses, setting it apart from the others.
The Masters believed if we could observe the Five Elements in nature and see these patterns of truth reflected within our own selves, then we would have the wisdom to be in harmony with nature, others, and ourselves.
The teachings are all woven into the breath, movement and theory while maintaining elemental alignment and meditation.
When you listen to the theory, embody the elements, and breath in accordance with the current times - you will learn the teachings and patterns of the elements. The teachings are all woven into the movements through discovering meridians (energy lines used in acupuncture), elemental expressions of each asana, breathing styles to achieve an array of results from calming to enlivening, and in depth theory bridging hatha and taoist yoga philosophy’s.
