The 7 Elements In Practice
In addition to what we might think of as the classical elements: earth, water, fire, air, and gas (space), in many ancient eastern concepts of self there are an additional two: consciousness (or thought itself) and the element of spirit. Each of us is comprised of all seven elements. These seven energies exist within all of us, but how they are expressed varies. Although all seven elements are within our makeup, as we explore each individually we begin to uncover how they are manifest to better understand who we are, why we are, and how we are. Each element has a unique relationship to what we feel, how we think, and how we act. By taking a very specific look at each we begin to have a clearer picture of our life and how we live and experience it.
This is our basis for practice and study at TANTRA.
In both group and private practice, connecting the subtle (emotional/mental) and gross (physical/neurological) aspects of the self is our way to find a greater connection to the WHOLE self, the spiritual. We do this through use of systems including asana (yoga postures), the chakras (energy centers), svadhyaya (self-reflective practice) and meditation, to name a few.
The approach is holistic and healing in nature. The space created for this work is integral to its efficacy, and therefore we ask everyone to treat it as sacred in order to experience as such. Before your first visit to TANTRA please read our “before your first visit” page, as well as the class descriptions by element.
This is a place and time where your practice is more than a sweat or a stretch.
This is a RETURN TO SACRED.
