Embodying the Power of Nature: EARTH (BHUMI)

Within Yoga and Ayurveda the five Elements are referred as pancha maha Bhutas as part of the Tattvas or aspects of Creation. These five elements at the macrocosmic level are responsible for the structure of the Universe; they are the building block of the material world. This weekend will focus on the Earth element where you will learn the art of teaching Prana Vinyasa® - or Prana Flow® - as originated by the iconic Shiva Rea.

Earth represents the ground beneath us, food and our physical body. Earth element is everything in nature that is solid.

In the Elemental Earth Pathway of Prana Vinyasa you will learn to embody grounded, relaxed presence expressed in the movement pattern of the great hip opening Mudras Bujapidasana and Visvamitrasana. Healing our connection to the Earth is part of retrieving our ancestral connection to the land, our bones, gravity and presence of being. Open hips, open awareness.

During this weekend you will explore and learn how to teach BHUMI – Earth Namaskar and two Earth Sequences, Solar and Lunar, part of Elemental Prana Vinyasa Mandala.

You will be introduced to the Earth Element from a yogic and Ayurvedic perspective.
The day will begin with setting the theme and ‘bhav’ (feeling state) for the Earth element, Earth Meditation, Reflection, Journalling. Followed by a long Sadhana (practice).

Saturday morning will be dedicated to Solar Earth Sadhana/ Practice and integration lab before lunchtime.

What our students say

I was fortunate to meet Alessandra just over three years ago after completing my 200-hour teacher training. Alessandra’s devotion to the practice deeply inspired me so I decided to enrol on her 300-hour course in 2014. A few months into the programme, I started experiencing a tremendous shift in my own practice and teaching, feeling more focused and confident. The module subjects are carefully chosen in order to deepen the student’s knowledge, teaching skills and support their own development and creativity. A typical day consists of a long morning practice designed around the theme of the day, meditation, chanting, discussion on the class sequence and teacher’s labs. The group discussions at the end of the day gave us all an opportunity to share our own experiences as teachers, our joys and challenges. This was all done in a truly supportive, honest and nurturing environment. Alessandra is an incredibly gifted teacher with an amazing wealth of knowledge acquired over three decades of dedication to the practice. Her teaching is beautiful, spiritual and powerful, bringing out the best in each of her students. Alessandra is a caring, compassionate and supportive; she encourages her students to be creative with their own practice and teaching. A highly recommended teacher, a highly recommended programme.
