Elemental Design

Original Presentation Date: February 23rd, 2022

Greek philosopher Empedocles identified four elements of nature: air, earth, fire and water. This was expanded by others to include 'space' and modern-day yoga often focuses on those five elements to improve health and attain greater knowledge, wisdom and happiness. Philosophy, mindfulness, meditation, or simple relaxation all have roots in the Five Elements Theory and we can connect to these elements in a single backyard sitting by the swimming pool.
