December Sama–Set: The Elements

In Practice + Principles, Studio Scoop by Samatva Yoga0 Comments

Introducing: “the elements”

According to the ancient wisdom of yoga, Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether are the archetypal building blocks that compose everything in the Universe, including nature and the human body. Wellness depends on the balance of these internal five elements.

When elements are balanced, we are in harmony within ourselves, feel both stable and energized, and can maintain high levels of health and wellness. When our elements are out of balance, we may suffer disrupted equilibrium within ourselves and the natural world.


about the sama-set yoga class style

Sama-Set is a radical experience combining breath, body, meditation and relaxation.

Each month we will introduce a NEW Hatha Yoga sequence that enable students in deepening their yoga inquiry & understanding of the relationships of the energetic and physical bodies working together. This dynamic class embraces the teachings of Hatha and Raja Yoga merged and can change your life. It encourages us to look at deepening our understanding of how we connect to ourselves and our environment, moves us physically to strengthen and reduce tension, mentally calms and clarifies and emotionally releases and cleanses.

Students new and advanced can expect to leave feeling centered, balanced, refreshed and open with new tools to tap into the true expression of who they really are.

Included in each class:

  • monthly theme/yoga posture focus
  • pranayama (yogic breathing exercises)
  • guided mediation (seated or reclined | 5-10 min each class)
  • yogic philosophy

Why this style?

We need foundations. Theory can help us to create intention in our practice and then our experience integrates into our understanding. This class will deepen any students understanding of the yoga practice.
