Ways to Attend

with Shambhavi Sarasvati

Ayurveda, Tantra and yogic practice begin with a deep understanding of the five elements: earth, water, fire, air and space.

Over the course of decades of studying classical Tantra and 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 emotions and in every manifestation of life
  • The mantras and yantras for each element
  • Simple practices to help you begin to explore and balance the five elements right away!

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

About the teacher



Shambhavi Sarasvati is the spiritual director of Jaya Kula. Her principle training is in the View and practices of Trika Shaivism, the classical Tantrik tradition of Kashmir, and the Dzogchen tradition of Tibet.

Spiritual practice is a way to find out who you really are and to live in the fullness of Reality. This is Self-realization. Nothing more or less.” —Shambhavi
