Over time on the yogic path, we get more connected. That is what yoga is all about. Practices are meant to connect you more deeply to yourself, to the people around you and to the earth. Explorations in yoga and Ayurveda lead us deeply within and deeply without, and as we explore our inner and outer landscape, we get in contact with the Five Great Elements that make ourselves and all life and matter on this planet. These are known in Yoga and Ayurveda as the pancha mahabhutas and they represent the foundational aspects of nature and matter. They are: space, air, fire, water and earth. These elements are acknowledged and revered in traditional cultures around the world. Yogis use practices to draw on the energies of these elements to bring more balance and harmony into our lives and into the world.
In this post, I share with you a simple meditation practice is designed to guide you into an experience these 5 elements both within you and in the world around you. This is a sample of the many meditations that I offer in my Vibrant Soulful Yoga Tribe membership.
