with Shambhavi Sarasvati
The practice of both Tantra and Ayurveda begins with a deep understanding of the five elements: earth, water, fire, air and space.
Over the course of decades of Tantrik practice and studying Ayurveda, Shambhavi Sarasvati has gained a profound, experiential understanding of the five elements and their relationship to health and spiritual practice.
In this teaching, you will learn:
- The nature and functions of the five elements and how these express themselves in our bodies, our minds, our energy and in every manifestation of life
- The mantras and yantras for each element
- Practices to help you begin to explore and balance the five elements.
Five-element Foundations is appropriate for both beginners and those who have studied the five elements in other contexts.
This teaching is a required first segment for anyone taking the full Ayurveda for You series that begins on September 17th, 2017. Register here for Five-element Foundations, and then register for the remaining teachings in the Ayurveda for You series.
You may also take the Five-element Foundations as a stand-alone teaching.
Five-element Foundations is a Jaya Kula Core Teaching
