Kunga 5Elements Flow & Ayurveda Teacher Training with Noelle Whittington

December 5 @ 9:00 am - December 8 @ 6:00 pm


Anyone can take this workshop.

5Elements Flow Yoga is a model of five creative, dynamic vinyasa flow practices within the Kunga Yoga School developed by Kristin Cooper-Gulak and inspired by the teachings of Ayurveda. 5Elements Flow is based on the “panchamahabhutus”; or the five great elements of nature, and is for students of all levels. This practice teaches a deeper understanding of the elements through unique namaskars and posture sequencing, and offers the practitioner a toolbox of five flow practices which correlate with changing seasons and life cycles. This palette of creative practices-from deeply grounding to highly energizing-creates a foundation for sustaining a lifelong yoga practice.
The 5Elements Flow model includes the following classes:

5Elements Earth Flow
5Elements Water Flow
5Elements Air Flow
5Elements Fire Flow
5Elements Space Flow
All 5Elements Flow practices are set sequence classes, meaning that the same sequence of namaskars and asanas are taught every time in every class.

5Elements Flow Yoga Teacher Training Certification is for aspiring and experienced teachers wishing to deepen their knowledge of vinyasa “flow” practices, and the ayurvedic effects of asana. Ayurveda is known as the sister science of yoga, and teachers with this understanding of the ayurvedic effect of asana can more fully support their students and private clients with a plethora of tools and options applicable to the individual’s needs. Participants will also learn the secrets of vinyasa sequencing of families of asanas and peak poses, as well as practical teaching tools. Vinyasa or “Flow” practices are the most popular style of yoga practiced across the U.S., and the tools gained in this certification can be applied in multiple settings. Upon completion of this training, you will be certified to teach all five of the 5Elements Flow Yoga practices. All participants receive a complete manual with photo glossary.
