The basis and foundation of all the elements is the Earth.
It is the first fountain from whence all things spring; it is the centre, foundation and mother of all things.
Earth is the element of stability, foundations and of the body. The Earth is the realm of wisdom, knowledge, strength, growth and prosperity. It is also the physical Earth on which we live and the very heart of life.
As we practice Yoga with the intent to root and ground deeply into the center of the earth, we also reach into the center of our own creation and our fundemental base of knowledge and understanding. As everything we need to know is already embedded inside our souls ready to be re-learned as we move through the process of our own journey.
Yoga leads us throught these different phases, as you start to move and peel of layers and layers to reveal your true self.
