University Open Air: Tibetan Yoga: The Five Movements for Balancing the Five Elements in our Bodies

Learn five standing yoga movements that release tensions and blockages in our gross body and subtle energy channels. Physical movement, breath, and awareness are coordinated to harmonize our body, energy, and mind. These five movements especially open the heart and naval chakras, and energize and balance the five elements in our body: earth, water, fire, wind, and space elements.


In Tibetan Buddhist tantra, our body is a vehicle for transformation; therefore, it is extremely sacred. This precious body is inside-out channels, where subtle energy flows; the energy is our mind’s vehicle. Hence, the nexus working of our body, energy, and mind are interdependent. Energy and mind are not tangible; however, if we work on our tangible body, we can connect easily with our energy and mind for physical, emotional, and mental wellbeing, and develop our spiritual path.


These five movements are simple and easy to do, and appropriate for all ages. They are incredibly beneficial for overall balance and well-being – we can feel the benefit right away!
