Join us for a unique Elemental Yoga Journey that will move your energy through the Small intestine (Yang) and Heart (Yin) meridians.

Did you know that the balance of the 5 Elements within our body/mind complex is crucial to how we feel and (re)act? What does the Fire of Life mean to you?

Destroying while it is creating, purifying while transforming, FIRE exists in the present moment. It carries the heart of devotion as it asks the sacrifice of form in order to transform. This luminous, creative force inspires joy, creativity, celebration and magic.
Let’s deep dive into the Element of Fire, exploring the many facets, polarities and depth of this Element through yoga asanas, promising to bring the heat (and to balance it) as we enter the winter months ahead.

 
  • ​You will meet a world class teacher and you will have the opportunity to talk to her.

  • You will feel new energy & joy of newly discovered movement.

  • You will learn to perceive your body from a different perspective.

  • Regular practice can help you cure health issues you had no idea about.

  • At a time of lockdown, you can make new friends with similar interests.

     

 

Get inspired, get driven, take one step in a new direction. It might be the step

that starts an exciting, adventurous journey ...

 

Once you connect with the elements in nature,
then you can easily start to connect to your own constitution,
how the elements appear in you.

The Yin and Yang of Fire: an Elemental Yoga Journey with Amber

Saturday 10 pm – 11.30 pm CET 
 


Elemental yoga is a unique system that integrates the wisdom of Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Hatha Yoga into a holistic lifestyle practice both on and off the mat. It uses gentle, physical postures, mudras, visualisations and affirmations to bring harmony to the 5-elements (Earth, Water, Fire, Wind, Space) within the body/mind constitution by strengthening, stretching and supporting the correlating elemental meridians.

In our weekend practice, we will use asanas to move energy through the Small intestine (Yang) and Heart (Yin) meridians. The Fire Yang Session presents a dynamic practice that includes core strength and shoulder mobility, flexibility and strengthening. The Fire Yin session offers a beautiful, passive practice to channel Fire energy through devotion and heart-oriented asanas.

No experience is needed. The sessions will be held online through Zoom, in English language.

29 € or 750 CZK / person / weekend

LIMITED CAPACITY !
The workshop is exclusively open to participants.
