The holistic principles of yoga, Ayurveda, and astrology teach that the universe—including you—is composed of five subtle elements: earth, water, fire, air, and space. Understanding these elements and their interactions helps you regain and maintain health, balance, and vitality.
The earth element is grounding; water brings flow and releases the power of emotion; fire energizes and stimulates creativity; and air and space expand and open, connecting us to the universal spirit.
In this rejuvenating and restorative yoga retreat with Danika Marie Hendrickson, you explore and experience the joy of these subtle energies within. Through discussion, meditation, and asana, you restore yourself with a focus on breath awareness, easy movement, and gentle postures comfortably supported by props (blocks, blankets, and bolsters), which encourage opening and release.
As your body relaxes, awareness of these elements, including those that are dormant and longing for expression, arise to transform tension and numbness into greater energy and balance in your life. You come away with techniques you can use to restore yourself anytime.
All levels of experience, including beginners and yoga teachers, are welcome.
