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.
