Mogadao 5 Element yoga is derived from two major traditions of yoga, Iyengar and Ashtanga. 5 Element yoga combines the precision and therapeutic nature of Iyengar yoga with the dynamism and power of Ashtanga. One major and essential difference is the integration of Chinese 5 element theory, which is imbued into the very conscious style of sequencing of asana. The result is a yoga that is dynamic in its variation between the polarities of stillness and expression.
In 5 Element yoga practitioners participate in a yoga session, which is designed to respond to various human temperaments, natural forces, and biological and cosmological factors. In fact is it these aspects of daily life that co-create the sequence of asana and the choice of focus from the 5 elements: water, wood, fire, earth and metal.
