DHARMI-Yoga® focuses on the purification and alignment of the five elements. This 20 hour continuing education course for yoga therapists focuses on providing a clear guidance and assessment to recognize the source of stress, to release it and to access a space of wellbeing through yoga practice. The seminar includes teachings, examples of the different levels of stress (physical, emotional, etc.) and how to guide students through a compassionate, healing practice. You will receive clear tools (based on the five elements) for alignment to balance the five bodies and to access a space of peace, wellbeing and connection. You have the opportunity to present three case studies for evaluation. Includes: - foot analysis to observe clearly the strength, the weakness and the complementarity of the 5 elements - yoga sequence to release stress and to heal ptsd based on the analysis of the 5 elements - teachings methodology - anatomy of the 5 elements - pranayamas, asanas - philosophy of yoga - pancha koshas (5 elements)
Each element has its own characteristics and properties:
Earth, Water and Fire are tangible things that can be touched or seen; they exist as matter. Space and Air are intangible yet they exist everywhere around us, even though we cannot see it. Earth, Water and Fire are therefore easier for us to understand than Space and Air because they have more concrete forms. However, all five elements are equally important and interrelated.
How can we see the reflection of the 5 elements in our health below our feet?
We notice specific signs on our feet (inflamations, weaknesses, calosities, ...) that shows if the 5 elements are balanced or imbalanced in some specific parts of your body.
Each week we focus on specific areas and elements:
1. Introduction to the foot analysis and the Earth Element with a yoga sequence
2. Water Element, foot analysis and yoga sequence
3. Fire Element
4. Air Element
5. Ether Element and integration of all
Each class a yoga sequence to balance your health in a holistic way, integrating the 5 elements for wellbeing
Whether you are a yoga teacher or a yoga student, the classes are adapted for everyone.
