Five Element Yoga Teacher Training


For yoga teachers and experienced yoga students.

Five Element Yoga® invites you to celebrate with yoga postures, balance your energy with breathing and mudras, detoxify with self-massage, and find deep rest with guided meditation. Drawing from the traditions of yoga, Ayurveda, and traditional Chinese wisdom, Five Element Yoga is designed to help each person find their natural rhythms for greater harmony and inner balance. Earth, water, fire, air, and ether are the archetypal building blocks of our bodies and energy. This multifaceted inquiry allows the essence of your elements to flower from within.

Explore the practice and gain the skills to lead powerful classes and workshops. You learn how to

  • Nourish your being with joyous movement and deep relaxation
  • Develop the qualities of grounding, fluidity, transformation, openness, and  freedom
  • Guide students deep within the elemental matrix of their being
  • Bring new tools onto your mat and into your life that cultivate inner harmony, health, happiness, peace, and potential.
