The Five Elements of Nature
EARTH

Steadiness
Pressure

The earth element teaches stability without rigidity. Stable and dependable, structures are containers that keep us safe and supported. Healthy pressure builds strength and vigor.

SPACE

Presence
Wholeness
Timelessness
Infinity
Pure Love

In the space element, we replenish our bodies and reconnect to the experience of being whole. Through space, we learn to dive under all the waves of activity and exist in pure presence and love. The movement in the space element is stillness. Through stillness, we can feel everything that is already moving within us.

FIRE

Activation
Initiation
Transformation
Passion
Purification

In the fire element, we access our passion and ignite the spark of our core desire. We build internal heat to transform stagnation into live-giving action.

AIR

Expansion
Dynamic Tension
Connection
Openness
Agility

The air element teaches us to open to life, to spread out, and to feel the expansiveness in our bodies. As you follow through with expansion and extending all the way, your whole body becomes more open, life-filled, and breath-filled.

The 5 Tools of Amba

BREATH

Breath is the foundational practice of Amba. Breath is foundational life force, primary nourishment. It’s simple and pure medicine for the whole body and being.
We use dozens of breaths, including the open exploration of exploring and discovering different ways that
your body wants to breathe.

 

MOVEMENT

Every Amba class includes physical, elemental movement that ranges from subtle, micro-movement to fluid, feminine yoga, to dynamic whole body dancing. There is a specific aspect of joy that lives within the body’s tissues. Body joy gets awakened through physical movement. 

SOUND

The vibration of your own voice, when felt through your body, creates a resonance within you.
Sound is grounding and nourishing. In Amba, we direct sound into different areas and organs of the body to open up more space and flow of energy.

TOUCH

Touch is one of the greatest healing tools that exists. When you place your hands on your body, you heighten your connection to that area. Our bodies crave present, loving touch from our very own hands, and from the hands of others.

PRESENCE

By bringing the presence of your mind into an area of your body, and being with yourself, inside your breathing tissues, you sync up with your nature.
The practice of putting your presence in your body is restful and brings you home to yourself, wherever you go. 

Ritual + Cycles of Nature

Amba practices honor the cycles of nature within and around us:

  • Moon phases
  • Seasons
  • Life seasons and stages
  • Breath cycle
  • Day/night cycles

In Amba, we enjoy simple rituals such as sipping tea together, making a flower mandala, offering a blessing, or anointing with oils to weave the sacred into every gathering.
