We are all made of the five elements: earth, water, fire, air, and sky. Masterful living is achieved when these elements are balanced within. When out of balance, you may feel “contracted” (too much earth), “under water” emotionally stressed out (too much water), unmotivated (not enough fire) or over working (too much fire), scattered and fearful (too much air), or spacey and ungrounded (too much sky).
The Ashaya Yoga® practice brings about a flowing integration of all five elements that leaves you feeling strong, confident, peaceful, openhearted, and ready to engage with life wholeheartedly from a place of worthiness.
Open Sky ~ Bask In the Vastness Enjoy a spacious, heart-opening practice including standing poses, backbends, hip openers, twists, and forward bends. Includes a sky meditation and deep relaxation.
Rich Earth ~ Transform Challenges Into Life-Enhancing Change Challenges never come to put you down. They only come when you are ready to rise up and stand strong in your power. Learn how to engage with life’s challenges with an open heart that transforms obstacles into opportunities. Build core strength, flexibility, and balance with standing poses, hip openers, inversions (with modifications and prep poses), and backbends.
Delicious Water ~ Gentle Yoga and Therapeutics For the Lower Back and Hips: Release strain and stress and allow yourself to enjoy a sequence of flowing, soothing, and restorative poses. Gently open the body and practice therapeutic applications to soothe, heal, and strengthen the lower back and hips in order to flow better with the currents of life. Water always finds its way back to the source – the ocean of consciousness.
Bright Fire, Soothing Wind ~ Flame Of the Heart: Masterful living is about tapping into the infinite light of the universe deep in your heart in order to source your true passion and vision for your life. Practice an inspiring sequence of postures that reconnects you to your heart where you recognize you are already whole and complete. End with a deep relaxation integrating all five elements.
Teachers Practice ~ Refine Your Alignment Open to all teachers and experienced students.

Focus on the therapeutic, detailed alignment technique of Ashaya Yoga grounded in a spiritually uplifting theme from the Tantra philosophy. Refine your alignment and take your practice to the next level. Enjoy a variety of standing poses, hip openers, inversions, backbends, and hand balances with modifications and preparatory sequences that build strength, balance, and flexibility.
