Elemental Self-Care Program
This is a five week program based on the 5 elements - earth, water, fire, air and space. It is designed to help you feel balanced, grounded, energised and able to cope with all the challenges life throws at us!
This program initially took place live during November 2020 over Zoom. It is now available to buy as a series of pre-recorded videos, giving you them flexibility to weave yoga into your day as it suits you.
As each element is associate with a different chakra, the program moves in sequence through the chakras from the base to the throat:
Week 1 - the earth element and the root chakra (muladhara)
Week 2 - the water element and the sacral chakra (swadisthana)
Week 3 - the fire element and manipura chakra (the solar plexus)
Week 4 - the air element and the heart chakra (anahata)
Week 5 - the space element and the throat chakra (vishuddhi)
Each week starts with a 30 minute restorative practice. This gives you a chance to tune in and set your intention for the week ahead. It is suggested that you do this on Sunday evening but you can schedule it to suit your lifestyle.
The next 5 days are 30 minute vinyasa flow practices, each followed by a 5-10 minute guided relaxation. These are designed as early morning practices but work equally well in the evening.
On the 7th day of each week, there is a 75 minute vinyasa flow sequence which gives you a chance to go deeper and explore further what you've tasted through the week.
The program finishes with a 30 minute long guided yogic relaxation (yoga nidra). This practice can be used any time to help you relax and unwind, even if you are injured or unwell.
The yoga practices are supported by written material giving you more information about each element, how it manifests in your life and what you can do off your mat to bring it into balance.
Spotify playlists of music to compliment each week are also provided so you can choose to accompany your practice with music or enjoy the silence.
When you purchase the program, you will receive links to all 36 yoga videos, links to Spotify playlists for each week and written material to support your practice. You can contact Caragh at any time during the program for advice or support.
