About these recordings

These are live recordings made during a weekend yoga retreat at Sneaton Castle (Whitby) in September 2006. Whilst every effort has been made to remove extraneous sounds, there is the occasional cough or nature sound, but this does not detract from the impact of these memorable recordings.

Booklet, 4 CDs and box

The Elements

In the yogic tradition the five elements (panch tattwa) represent aspects of our creation and evolution. These elements exist in similar form in many traditions such as Chinese Philosophy (wood, fire, earth, metal, water), Hippocratic Medicine (black bile, phlegm, yellow bile, blood) and Alchemy (earth, water, fire, air, æther).

The practices offered in ths 4 CD set work with the five elements and their associated chakras, physical senses, mantras and yantras (symbols) in a structured and accessible way, from the gross tangible Prithvi (Earth) up to the subtle insensible Akasha (Space). There are specific practices for each tattwa, culminating in a yoga nidra which incorporates all five elements.

In the final practice of tratak you can use the tattwa yantras printed in this booklet, either for your zodiac sign (see the table opposite) or for a tattwa that you are working with in your daily sadhana.
