Journey through the five elements


'Let your life proceed by its own design’
Bob Weir & John Barlow

All of us are metabolic organisms with a unique design, part earth, water, fire, air and ether. How you nurture your inner fire, ground yourself, flow through life, breathe and meditate are all things you will learn at Viva’s 200 hour yoga teacher training starting in May 2023. 

We will take you on a journey towards discovering and understanding how the five elements combine to bring alive your Prana (life force), Tejas (radiance) and Ojas (health & vitality) and how to compassionately share that knowledge with others. Come join the circle and plant the seeds of knowledge and growth with Vanessa and her team of experienced yoga teachers and facilitators. Viva la Vida.
