About this trip

Thursdays at 8amEST 

10x 120min. classes online via zoom 

20 hrs - Holistic foot analysis and yoga sequences to balance the 5 elements 

The 5 elements of nature are known in Sanskrit as the pancha bhutas,  or panchamahabhutas. They form the basic building blocks of the  universe, every person, animal, plant and thing is composed of various  combinations of the pancha bhutas.

APD Program accredited by International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT). 

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:

  1. Prithvi or Bhumi (Earth) — represents solidity, stability and grounding.
  2. Apas or Jal (Water) — represents fluidity, adaptability and change.
  3. Tejas or Agni (Fire) — represents energy, passion and transformation.
  4. Vayu (Air) — represents movement, expansion and communication.
  5. Akasha (Space or Ether) — represents emptiness, consciousness, and intuition.

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. 

If you are a yoga teacher and need some continuing education hours, you will receive 10hrs YACEP with the participation to this series of 7 classes.
