Through a continuous and mindful practice, we can allow ourselves to explore and balance the physical body. Relieving stress, while rekindling the connection between thoughts, heart, emotions, body and spirit. This is a balancing and aligning of our many worlds: the physical, etheric, emotional, mental, and spiritual.

Since birth, we have been programmed to adapt to external pressures and societal expectations. We receive cues from our environment, our community, and even some well-intentioned loved ones about social norms. We are taught to act and behave in a certain way, and we eventually experience a sense of disconnection from who we truly are. Even when we enter a yoga class, we may feel a need to fulfill the instructor’s expectations, achieve the perfect posture, or try to match the abilities of others. Eventually, this gap becomes exhausting, and a significant source of stress.

The DHARMI YOGA® practice is a relief from this. With a focus on intention, we move into the five bodies. We experience breath, flow, movement, and a settling into asanas with integrity and oneness. We explore more of our authentic selves, allowing a holistic and mindful approach to practicing yoga. We find our way into the poses, much as we seek to find our way in life. We feel authentic, connected.

As a yoga teacher you will receive more tools for:

– personalized guidance to your students

– teaching skills in conscious communication

– alignments balancing the five bodies

– series adapted to the intention

– knowledge of the five bodies and their interconnectedness to support balance and harmonious evolution in the path of yoga.


As reference in yogic philosophies:

Sadh Guru offers introductions to the Five Elements in Yoga

The chant in kundalini yoga: Wahe-Guru supports the alignment of the Five Elements:

Wa- water element

He- air element

Gu-earth element

Ru- fire element

Silence before during and after- ether element



Offered mainly in private or semi- private classes, DHARMI YOGA® draws upon the energies of five fundamental elements, and the universal laws of alignment in the seven dimensions.

The five el
ements in the DHARMI YOGA® practice consist of Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Ether. These key elements are integrated into the yoga practice with intention.

The element of Earth represents our foundation and grounding. Through this element, we explore the experience and rooting of our physical body.

Water represents our emotions and our interpersonal relationships. We explore and experience the channeling and flow of our feelings.

With Fire, we feel energy and the pulse of life within us. In the DHARMI YOGA® practice, the element of Fire represents action, direction, and the inner fire. We tune in to the natural rhythm of our heart.

The element of Air guides the breath, giving conscious direction. Through this element, we explore the depth and rhythm of the breath, and the connection between the mind’s thoughts and intentional breathing.

Ether is our spiritual realm. This element represents truth and divine light. We make peace, we allow time for contemplation, and we experience the interconnectedness of the five bodies.

We bring awareness to any obstacles surrounding our intentions through the DHARMI YOGA® practice. These may be our core beliefs, fears, or other attachments that hold us back. By observing our breath and rhythm, we allow our bodies to organically move from a place of acceptance and consciousness. We honor where we are in the present. Never forcing, we give space to release resistance and tension. By moving in this way, the proper pranayama is reached with grace and integrity, from our authentic inner selves.

Through the DHARMI YOGA® practice, we create room for stillness, and the chance to celebrate our connection with the Divine. We are able to shift our perception to an experience of acceptance as we choose between fear and love. We experience open hearts, connection, and a discovery of the authentic self.
