The Power of Five - Michael Hutchinson

This day will offer an insight into the following:-

The five elements, five prāṇa-s and the five maya-s, or levels of our being and how these models can be applied in our teaching of yoga including āsana, prāṇāyama and meditation.

-Ways we can use these five-fold models and the relationships between them in in a practical way, drawing on sense, sound, breath and visualisation.

-How the pañca bhuta each arise from the Five Senses and then how each relate to one of the five prāna-s, Samāna, Prāṇa, Apāna, Vyāna and Udāna.

-The Virajā Mantra, which asks for the five elements, energies etc. within us to be cleansed and cleared.

-The way the pañca maya model was seen by Srī Desikachar, drawing upon its origin in the Taittirīya Upaniṣad and to show its application, particularly at the levels of prāṇa and vijñāna.

Michael's IST days are always very rewarding and packed full of fresh material.
