ONLINE – 5Elements Flow + Ayurveda Yoga Teacher Training

The Ayurvedic Effects of Asana Flow


5Elements Flow Yoga is a model of five creative, dynamic vinyasa flow practices within the Kunga Yoga School developed by Kristin Cooper and inspired by the teachings of Ayurveda. 5Elements Flow is based on the “panchamahabhutus”; or the five great elements of nature, and is for students of all levels. This practice teaches a deeper understanding of the elements through unique namaskars and posture sequencing, and offers the practitioner a toolbox of five flow practices which correlate with changing seasons and life cycles. This pallette of creative practices-from deeply grounding to highly energizing-creates a foundation for sustaining a lifelong yoga practice.

5Elements Flow Yoga Teacher Training Certification is for aspiring and experienced teachers wishing to deepen their knowledge of vinyasa “flow” practices, and the ayurvedic effects of asana.
