Season 1 - Episode 7

Day 5: Elemental Dance

60 min - Practice


Enjoy the Elemental Dance yoga sequence, allowing Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Space to shine on the yoga mat. In the final day of your challenge we focus on smooth transitions between poses to help manage your Prana and surrender to the flow that comes from deep listening in your practice. We close with the Full Metta Loving-Kindness Meditation.

Your Self Care Homework Challenge for Day 5:

Ayurvedic practices get better with time, so continue for at least a week all of the homework assigned thus far. Consider this week a reset to realign your health and wellness goals.

Some additional suggestions:

  • Avoid spicy or inflammatory foods like chilies, processed foods, and red meat
  • Decrease or eliminate your caffeine consumption to relax the nervous system
  • Remove sugar and alcohol to promote mental clarity and stabilize your moods

Watch for my blog post on Yoga Anytime for healthy food alternatives, as well as a recipe for refreshing Arugula and Watermelon Salad.

What You'll Need: Mat, Square Bolster, Blanket, Block (2)

Thanks for the kind words. I hope these practices get even better with repetition and that they keep you inspired and cool during the hot season. The book is a great tool to walk you through a year of self-care practices inspired by yoga and Ayurveda. Keep me posted on what new practices you're enjoying!
Thank you Melina, I really look forward to the autumn season!
