The Art of Masterful Living with Todd Norian:  Rich Earth

The Art of Masterful Living with Todd Norian: Rich Earth

THE ART OF MASTERFUL LIVING: 

EMBODYING THE FIVE ELEMENTS 

THROUGH YOGA

WITH TODD NORIAN

AT SRUTI YOGA CENTER | GREAT BARRINGTON, MA

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 with emotional stress (too much water), unmotivated (not enough fire) or over-efforting (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.

Rich Earth: Transform Challenges Into Life-Enhancing Change

Saturday, April 20, 1-4 pm

$65 for individual workshop

Challenges never come to put you down. They only come when you are ready to rise. 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.
