"Beyond words! The course provided a comprehensive experience of self discovery and rich training in Elemental Yoga Philosophy. The curriculum/course structure is deeply intuitive leaving me feeling ready to teach impactful yoga. The course completely reshaped my purpose and confidence in my personal practice. I felt supported, challenged and stretched throughout the course. I could not have found a course that better suited my needs. It was truly magical.

The elements stirred strong emotional responses from me and helped me to re-establish a healthy relationship to my emotions. I feel stronger physically and connected to my body's potential. I also now know how to move forward and continue to evolve my practice.

Jai's teaching methodology created a more profound integrated learning experience then I have ever experienced. This was for me the x-factor of my experience of the course. The information shared was refined to ultimate potency and delivered with expertise that spoke to our highest, most-natural self. I am excited for anyone that has the opportunity to do a course with Jai, truly it is only to be experienced."

"My Elemental Yoga Course was a personal journey of growth, and a yoga teaching experience that will stay with me for life.
Having grown up barefoot and by spending a lot of time hiking in the wilderness I thought I had a good connection with nature, but it was only through the Elemental Yoga practices and letting the elements move through me that I experienced what it felt like to be aligned with nature. Being and continuing to become aligned with nature has helped me realize that knowledge doesn't rule me, and that it's really by experiencing the subtle energy body that we feel alive. Jai's teaching was so engaging. I enjoyed his humor and depth of experience in the many forms of alternative medicine. His passion for everything he shares is evident and this quickly sparked my own passion for the teachings nature has to offer.
His mind seems to work in weird and wonderful ways that made everything surprising logical in the end. Rare."

"The idea I had about yoga had nothing to do with all what I know about it now. I was always curious about it, but I could never find clear answers. After this experience I definitely shifted to a new lifestyle that connects me to real yoga.
I felt the energetics and healing powers of Yoga stronger than ever before with Elemental Yoga philosophies so real on the Mat. This blew my mind. I have never felt better in my own body.
I am definitely more capable to use yoga to develop myself, because the practice I lived here is so powerful that it's in me now. I feel that I can use it at any time and I know how to use it.
I feel confident to teach yoga once I'm out into the world, because the yoga is in me, I know how to give instructions and what to deliver. And most importantly, I know what I shouldn't teach and the reasons why.

I can't put into words my experience of the Elemental Yoga Course as a whole. For me it has been a way to connect to myself, to discover and accept parts of me that I never accepted before. It is an experience that makes you realise who you are and how you can connect to yourself. I feel lighter, brighter, my insecurities decreased, my self-esteem higher. Jai's teaching is a gift. Having the opportunity to learn from his experience, his wisdom, is one of the best experiences I've had in my life. The way he delivers all these beautiful concepts he has learned along his life is breath taking. He's there to listen to you at any point and that made me feel safe somehow. He's a master in what he does, and he created a perfect healing space which allowed me to see the best in myself."

"The course was profoundly transformative. It was the most intuitive and aligned teaching on some of the most important concepts that Yoga approaches. The Elemental Yoga process led me on a journey that brought me closer to myself and to nature - far more than I ever thought possible. Living in the Ashram community made 18 total strangers feel like family. It's been such a blessing to be totally immersed in the program in this beautiful space and away from any external distraction. The Elemental Course felt like coming home to a piece of myself that has been dormant, and each component brought powerful lessons, perspectives and shifts within me. Like Jai says, learn to trust the Parts and you will see the Whole :)

The yoga classes completely changed my perspective of yoga and brought me to a totally new understanding of how nature operates within us. Each class was designed to take us in a certain direction, move a specific energy and connect to an Element - and I found this method to be totally life changing. Though I felt my body getting stronger as the days progressed, these classes went way beyond the physical. The level of connection you feel in these practices far exceeds any other form of yoga I've ever experienced and I've been deep in several directions with Yoga practice. I feel more aligned with who I am and I feel healthier and more vibrant than ever before.

Jai has a magical way of connecting all of the philosophies in the course and you can truly feel the level of care and passion he has. There's never a dull moment with him and he teaches in a way that speaks to the depth of your spirit, yet still manages to keep things light. The experience he brings is remarkable. And I walked away from his teaching feeling like I had gained immeasurable amounts of wisdom."

"I never could have known that a yoga course could be so deeply healing. I not only feel more confident in my capabilities as a yoga teacher, but I feel more connected to my body than ever before. I have a connection to yoga and understanding of my personal practice for the first time in my life! Other yoga programs and classes were so based in anatomy and physiology that the depth of connection was always missing for me. I felt it was out there to be discovered and through the Elemental Yoga Practices I truly feel I've connected to yoga in the way I had dreamed.

Through connecting to nature, the Elements, devotion to myself and truly feeling and listening to my body, I feel connected to something bigger than myself and see yoga as a tool to deepen these moments, to clarify my instincts. My WANT to practice yoga, to understand the elements even deeper - keep diving in, is so strong. This has changed so much for me, helped me in multiple ways and I'm extremely grateful."

Tina Sparkle (United Kingdom)

"The Elemental Yoga Course gave me the chance to step outside of life and observe myself objectively, in a safe and supported environment.
Working with the elements in the yoga practices helped me to connect back to nature and identify some old and inappropriate lifestyle choices. I now feel confident that I can use the yoga practices to restore balance in my body and mind.

Jai's teaching style was very inclusive and I felt safe and well supported in his lectures. He has an incredible way with words and his classes were lively and engaging without being too intense, even though at times the subject matter was deep. He always remains approachable and I felt comfortable asking questions. His answers were always carefully considered and accessible."

"I was not expecting that a Yoga course could change my basic self-beliefs, and not temporary changes, because during the course I had lots of chances to test myself and I have found that I have embodied many permanent changes in perspective.
It connected me with nature, with myself and with people around me. I thought I had many problems, but it turned out I only have to make my decisions. I also successfully reduced the medicine that I am on and will cut once I go back. I wasn't able to quit it before without having big emotional waves."

Claire Moon (United States)

"It was a journey of self-discovery to get to know myself intimately. To be present in nature fully - it was an experience with soul and purpose that impressed me right from the start. I learnt to connect to every part of myself, in a nourishing wave of new energies created from Elemental Yoga and Nature. I learnt to accept, to love and evolve with each moment, each challenge. Its simply beyond words.

As I worked through my resistances and discomforts, my experience transformed into something beautiful. I feel more open and am now a willing witness to my own growth. I recognize the areas in my physical and emotional body that carry energy. What a gift :)

Jai is something else. You can feel his soul in his teachings. He held the space and set the boundaries in a soft, but strong way. He taught me that silence and feelings are to be felt. That we need to go inwards to experience nature and self. That not knowing is deep knowing, and that connection we seek starts from within. We are eternal and perfect in nature. Yes, he makes real wisdom from old clichés!"

Matthew Pantano (United States)

"The Elemental Yoga Course was so much more than I could have ever imagined. A big reason I decided to take the course initially was to find myself and change some aspects of my life that I became conditioned to. I was experiencing anxiety and depression and couldn't shift through it. I soon came to realize that something that had affected me for so long could be handled and dealt with appropriately in just a few weeks. I may have come into this program with certain things to work on and face, which I certainly did, but looking at it now, there was no preparing for everything that I gained in this experience. I was taken out of my comfort zone completely and stepped into a totally unfamiliar world. A world that would show me all the beautiful aspects of life I have been missing out on or taking for granted. The space held by Jai allowed me to explore myself to the max, something I was never comfortable trying. I learned more about myself in 4 weeks than I have in the past 27 years. I broke down barriers I didn't know existed. I opened new emotions and let go of old emotions that had been holding me back. There are a thousand things I could write about my experience and what I've learned.
The yoga practices came as the biggest shock to me. I came to this course in what I would consider good physical shape. I learned very quickly that Elemental Yoga was much more than just the physical body. Allowing myself to have faith in the process of how the elements truly move you as a being, has helped me to fully let go and trust life.

Jai and I connected on a much deeper level than just him being my teacher. I look at him as a close friend. His passion to what he preaches is immeasurable. He is extremely passionate about what he believes in, but never does he push his opinions on others. He gladly opens his mind and holds space to challenge and question him. And he always respects who you are and what you have to say without judgment. Having a teacher hold a space where you can truly speak your mind without fear allows for the ultimate space to grow and learn. As a teacher during practices, he knew exactly when to help you push your limits and when to help you feel your body. Once again, always respecting you and your abilities. However, he is so much more than just a person who teaches yoga. He challenges you to get the absolute best out of you. He helps you to open your mind to new ideas and how to unlearn low-vibration conditions. For me, personally, he is someone that I can fully trust and have the utmost respect for. He tells me exactly like it is and respects me for who I am."

Maxine Holmes (United Kingdom)

"The last four weeks have been a revelation for me. The course is so much more than yoga. It's a subtle experience wrapped in a physical exploration.
I really connected to the Elemental Yoga practices. Physically doing 4 hours of yoga a day was challenging, but I made it, because there was no competition or comparisons in the teaching. I was free to explore my limits and felt seen as an individual, which is a wonderful experience.

Jai is a surprising teacher - always open, and gentle most of the time, but tough when it's appropriate. He knows the difference between limitation and laziness! Everyone respected him and trusted him with the journey he was taking us on. He is easy going and often funny, choosing simple words with real consequence which makes him easy to listen to. I trusted him and the course everyday."

Terje (Norway)
5 Mar 2018
"Having met Jai in India a few years back, I knew this training would be my path back to good mental health. More than that, it brought me back to simple joys, loving friendships and a deeper and more holistic understanding of myself. The multidimensional nature of the Elemental Yoga philosophy meant that I felt myself being reintegrated with aspects of myself I had lost touch with. I wasn't surprised to find out that even my music practice also got better the more I connected with the Elements.
Being in an environment with other likeminded people was great. Definitely the best choice I've made in many years. The course being so complete in only 200Hrs is ridiculously impressive."

Holly Magee (Australia)
4 Mar 2018
"The energy shifts that I felt through each Element took me on a wave of emotions and sensations that taught me from within. It is remarkable. I feel so grateful to have been a part of this Yoga Teacher Training and received the ability to use sequences of certain Elements depending on what I need at the time.

Jai's teachings on Yoga are profound, and his laid back approach shows that he has no doubts in what he is offering as an experience to his students. He holds the space gently but with certainty and I feel like he reads the students deeply."

Kristina Vitra (Sweden)
4 Mar 2018
"Wonderful! I have learned some interesting new things about myself, I have connected to parts of myself that I did not know existed. Elemental Yoga has also helped me to process things I've been through and see them for what they are.
It has helped me to overcome things I've been afraid to do or say. It has also changed my perspective of love, life, food and the way I see myself."

Dana Harvey, New Zealand

"Having long term Diabetes was the initial reason I attended this Course as years of seeking a new understanding for my condition was never met by modern medicine.What I have learned in this course is unquestionable. Elemental Yoga has enabled me to understand more about this condition than any doctor, health professional, nutritionist has ever done. Its holistic approach in its delivery incorporates everything & combines it all to a powerful tool that has had undeniable effects. Diabetes alone has had a profound level of insulin reduction while maintaining better readings than I have had before.

I found it comical as for so long I have been seeking all these answers & the foundations of this course allowed me to see they were in front of me the whole time. This course is a profound collection of knowledge & experiences all combined down into a powerful, yet simple approach that anyone can experience. It just works & better yet, everyone can access it. This concept of what Jai has managed to combine is all his years of experience takes everything to the next level. Yoga is no longer just yoga – it is so much more, a deeper awakening, a connection, the movement of energies, the alignment with nature, the healing tool is simply limitless in its potential following this approach.

My insulin reduction was substantial, my reliance shifted, all the underlying issues that exist with a condition like this have all started positively shifting. It excites me to even think of the possibilities this knowledge can have on a bigger scale.

It truly has been an eye-opening experience & I am extremely grateful that this course was written so thoroughly. I am ever grateful to Jai & his life’s teachings, for his sharing of all his knowledge & experiences in an incredible course, designed perfectly to unlock potential, deliver knowledge & share experiences, to ultimately give you a toolbox and skillset overflowing with this limitless potential to take home to share.

It is simple, it is undeniable & I am excited to keep growing."

Karli Kuruz, Canada (Yoga Teacher)

"Each yoga class was a gift, a beautiful energy experience that helped me to integrate and release old habits and patterns that were holding me back. These yoga classes have completely revolutionised my ideas of what yoga is and the profound effect it can have on people.

After finishing this course, I feel the most complete and satisfied that I have felt in years. Before this course, I was turning into a bit of a 'course addict', always seeking a teacher outside of myself to help me to better understand myself, understand the way of the world and how to help others. This training showed me the way back to the teacher within myself and the ever-present, always supportive and unconditionally loving teacher within Nature. I am leaving the course with the wisdom of simplicity and a deep understanding of myself on every level.

Jai has a wealth of knowledge and genuine experience in Holistic Medicine and Yoga Therapy, which he makes available through simple and powerful techniques. Jai is someone who really lives what he is teaching and it is such an inspiration to see what this living philosophy really looks like when put into practice over the course of one's lifetime. He keeps the course light and playful while also creating a sacred and safe place for deeply transformational processes."

Camilla Triulzi, Switzerland

"This training is set within the unique structure to first allow the experiences teach me directly, so that once we got to the more theoretical part of the course, my body already knew what we were exploring. This made the Elemental Yoga learning experience so deep and changing at the same time. Every day we were perfectly attuned to the previous one, taking the experience deeper, leaving space to let it integrate and become a part of myself. There was a clear and strong structure to this course, yet still I had so much space, for myself and to connect with the group as well.

I found exactly what I’ve been looking for so widely in today’s modern yoga approach – finally a philosophy that creates a deep connection to myself through the energetic nature of Elemental Yoga. I discovered the beauty and the power of simplicity. The training showed me the great power that lies behind communicating and working in tune with Nature.

Jai is like a never-ending spring of wisdom, always something new to learn. I could feel Nature speaking through him and this Yoga training is a very healing and joyful experience! I feel like I’m not the same as I was before this course, it truly transformed me."

Lars Audun, Norway

"By the depth of this training you can sense it is carefully woven together, aligned with the energy of the group. It’s impossible to describe the importance of the wisdom wrapped up in the experiences of this course. The beauty of this approach to Yoga Therapy is that rather than engaging with only the intellect, Elemental Yoga appeals to the wisdom of the body itself. It’s talking directly from the energies from Nature, deeply connecting you to the bigger picture of life. For me it is transformative, simple and yet immensely deep at the same time.

Elemental Yoga helps me to dive into the very essence of myself, unravelling old emotional patterns I have had all my life. It is like I am unravelling and putting myself back together in a way that aligns more with who I want to be.

This yoga has changed my life into a life more worthy of celebrating. I am more connected to my emotions, and to the way I interact with others. It works on all aspects of myself, and the wisdom of it never seems to end. A practice I will keep for the rest of my life."

Elena Wollesen, Denmark

"This course turned my world upside down. Before this course I was just an ordinary girl who didn’t know much about spirituality, energy or yoga and I definitely hadn’t experienced anything like this.

During the course, I began a personal transformation. My picture and belief of who I was as a person changed, as well as my one-dimensional view of the world. I literally began to experience that I’m not just a body with a mind. I also had an energy body and a psychic body. I began to feel the energy moving within me. During meditation, I discovered a whole new world, a new dimension. I now feel like I’m a whole lot closer to finding the true me. Nature is a powerful thing.

Every yoga class was a little piece of magic for me. It always took me by surprise. I felt clearly how my energy body responded to the yoga. I began to feel how the energy ran in my meridians and felt how a great, wild, beautiful energy started to get alive inside of me. The yoga and meditation helped me to get in contact with my psychic body. I got a glimpse of what I’m about to become and saw a beautiful and slightly overwhelming world, beyond this one.

I truly admire Jai’s work in Elemental Yoga Therapy. It comes across so easily because he is a real source of true Yoga knowledge and direct experiences. He is very caring, supportive, positive and his great sense of humour helped me a lot when things were difficult. Elemental Yoga is very simple and yet very effective. Its simplicity helped to create a space where you can connect with your true self and develop a healing spirituality."

Christy Graniere, USA (Yoga Teacher)

"I have been turned inside out, wrung out and transformed to the physical, emotional and spiritual woman I was meant to be. Each Elemental Yoga Class awakened my senses and energetic body to give me a deep appreciation of the Elements.

I had no idea when I signed up for the course how life changing it would be. I am excited to share my new appreciation for Nature, the Elements, the Energetic and Subtle body, to those I meet and hopefully illuminate their lives to their highest potential."

Emilie Maynor, USA
7 Dec 2016
"‘Don’t be confused between advanced yoga and deep yoga’ – Jai said during the first lecture. Then he spent the next month giving us that experience over and over. The yoga allowed me to explore depths which other Yoga practices did not reveal. I felt completely alive and in my body for the first time.

Every aspect of this course exceeded my expectations. I’ve practiced yoga for 10 years and taught for 7 years, but no program or training has given me such simple, but profound tools to connect with myself. Jai has created a holistic educational journey so deep, to the point that you often don’t realize how much you’re learning.

I feel like I have the tools to keep myself on track and that I gained a new trust for my future.

Jai has a remarkable gift and ability to create and hold space. The ebbs and flows of this course felt intentional and meaningful down to each moment. The attention he gave to each individual to make sure we all had a chance to experience our own energetic depths was admirable. He showed up fully present each day and held space for us to feel what it means to be conscious and subtle."

Erika Sloss, Canada

"I feel confident in the potency of this Yoga Therapy to transform my physical and emotional obstacles. I also feel confident that I will be able to take what I’ve learned and help many different people with the kinds of health imbalances that are becoming common in our world.

Jai’s Yoga classes are powerful experiences which build emotionally intelligent Yoga sequences which direct healing energy to where the healing is needed. By really connecting to the cycles of our body and environment, it has awakened my innate healing wisdom within me.

Going through each Element, different imbalances came to the surface and I was able to deal with this through the yoga practices, instead of needing help from others. I was able to heal from the inside out, which is wonderful gift and a powerful form of Natural Therapy."

Tini Krumsiek, Germany
7 Dec 2016
"Elemental Yoga gave me the most incredible energy experiences I’ve ever had. All of the classes were built on a powerful foundation, which made it possible for me to connect to myself way beyond my physical body.

I discovered, observed and experienced myself in ways I never have before. Trusting that my body will show me what I need and that Nature will give me the tools to balance my Self is an incredible feeling. It was deep, scary, funny, lovely, thrilling and so much more. It felt like I went through the seasons in my own body and lived through every type of weather and climate as an energy experience. Incredible

Jai created a safe space, which made it possible for me to go beyond my limits. I always felt in good hands and if needed there was always help to find myself back in the moment and to integrate my personal experience. It was a magical experience to devote myself to the Rituals he shared and I’m deeply grateful for all the offerings he shared on this path."

Tamara Malea, Mexico
7 Dec 2016
"The Elemental Yoga Therapy Teacher Training confirmed the idea I’ve had for many years; that this is ‘real yoga’. I’ve always felt deeply connected to Nature and Jai’s approach resonates solidly with me. This training swept away the doubts that keep rising in me, doubts about how I belong in a simple connection with Nature. This approach gives me a way to enrich my conversation with Mother Earth."

Linda Stevens, USA
7 Dec 2016
"Jai has an incredible knowledge and profound experiences that clearly shows that not only has he studied extensively the subject matter taught on this course, but he lives it without compromise. He is an excellent teacher in his field, which is reflected in Elemental Yoga Therapy…his impressive creation gathered over the years of his own life path. He is a master teacher in his discipline.

Coming here and going through this journey has connected me deeply with the Elements within me and my connection to Nature. From the pure diet, perfect jungle surroundings, seamless program and wonderful group of students I cherish the surprising depths we went through exploring each Element. It has been a beautiful, meaningful, healing experience that has given me life tools for myself and my clients."

Annemarie Wiedmer, Switzerland
7 Dec 2016
"Jai has many great qualities as a teacher. He’s very passionate about Yoga, Nature and the 5 Elements. The lectures were always fascinating, as each subject made me want to go deeper and broader into myself. Jai’s sense of humour was a wonderful way to keep the course light-hearted when it was needed and he is always very approachable and open, and available at all times to a level which I’ve never seen before with other teachers. His background in Yoga, Shamanism, Meditation, Zen Shiatsu, Rituals, Holistic Healing and Nature is immense and I’m very grateful that he shared it with us.

I love the teachings of the 5 Elements and I am really looking forward to go deeper into my own practice knowing what I know now."

Minesh Vaghji, England
7 Dec 2016
"It was so much more than just a Yoga course, and I have few words to help you understand it. I found the experience a beautiful personal journey which helped me develop a deep connection to myself through the understanding of the dialogue we are having with Nature.

I want to start at the beginning with the Elemental Yoga School and really dive into the world of energy that is inside the teachings Jai shares on living Yoga philosophy."

Nicole Gibbard, England
6 Dec 2016
"To be able to totally surrender to a Yoga experience of pure energy movement through a truly multidimensional medicinal philosophy, gave me with absolute faith and confidence in Nature’s wisdom. This is the teaching within Elemental Yoga.

To feel the physical body move effortlessly from an energetic source rising from a deeper connection than only my breathe and my discipline is a life-changing practice. It allowed the full force of Nature to heal the deepest issues of mind and body.

This was the second time I’ve done this training and after 20 years of Yoga experiences I realise that this time I have not only been able to see this training through new and wiser eyes, but also enforce my absolute faith and confidence in nature’s ability to remain present and giving to those wishing to receive."

Marion Formeau, France
6 Dec 2016
"Jai is providing a life-changing experience, with a multi-dimensional, broadly subjected, vast, fulfilling, challenging and fun curriculum. The yoga classes he gives are absolutely unique. The connection to the Elements and Nature, as obvious as it seems after his course, will change the way I live."

Naori Ishikawa Japan (Artist)
15 Mar 2016
"Elemental Yoga Theory seems so simple in the end, yet for us living in this world it's not easy to realize it. The Yoga Therapy course taught me how to feel more connected with nature, and so now the things I value are changing.

I can really see how we, as human beings, have been making things so complicated and the Training process itself taught me how to go back what we were all doing originally.

What I learnt from the training was priceless, it was more than yoga, or perhaps it is just the very essence of yoga, and I really feel how now I am on the right path."

Iris Enz, Austria (Yoga Teacher, MA Sociology & Communication)
16 Dec 2015
"The EYT experience was a deep process of learning, understanding and feeling the connection to myself, nature and everything that surrounds us again. My perception of life has changed and I now feel more self-determined and able to set the right impulses on the right energy levels to balance my own nature, my whole life.
The Elemental Yoga concept is an amazing model to make sustainable, deep changes within yourself and also help others to do the same. I now feel my own home, my center and my path and trust the flow of life more than I ever did.

For me as a yoga teacher it gives me more trust and I connect to my students on a deeper level, which makes real transformation possible."

Emily Shain, USA (Yoga Teacher)
15 Dec 2015
"The Elemental Yoga Therapy Training was in countless ways one of the best gifts I have ever been granted as a teacher and student of yoga but also as a person looking to grow. Not only did what I learn broaden my understanding of yoga, holistic health, but it also made me certain in my ability to help others-- students, friends, even clients who start off as strangers.

There is not often a day that goes by that I do not think of these teachings, and the resulting personal realizations, which came through the courses’ power in constantly connecting me with the simplest truths and experiences."

Evan Keith, California (Yoga Teacher, Entrepreneur)
15 Dec 2015
"One of the most valuable things I learnt through The Elemental Yoga Therapy Training was actually how to observe and be aware of myself and to accept that every day I am a bit different.

I learned to observe myself without judgement (sometimes!) - or if anything to simply be aware of it, to develop what I feel, not what I think I should feel. I would do this course over and over again because I know that every time I would learn so much more about the ever changing nature of myself."

Tara Clemeons USA (Councelor, Natural Health Practitioner)
14 Dec 2015
"The Training leads us through an intuitive creative path in developing a relationship with ourselves, allowing us to gather our own unique set of organic tools in the healing process, as a means to then offer healing to others.

I will be forever grateful for the journey I took in Elemental Yoga Therapy philosophy. As challenging as it is to put the feelings and lessons absorbed into words, with such an intense program, I will say that it has changed my views, values, and perception of life in a number of different ways.

As an extraordinary experience of unfolding, this was a gift to have as a yoga teacher or health practitioner or just simply as a living being."

Amber Sawyer PhD, USA (Yoga Teacher, Healing Arts Director)
15 Nov 2015
""The Elemental Yoga Therapy training is absolutely one of a kind: bravely, wisely and aesthetically revealing the Essence of ancient traditions including Yoga, Tantra, Ayurveda, TCM, Shiatsu, and Shamanism into a simple, pure, communicable reflection of Nature herself.

The wisdom can be woven with ease into daily living, yoga development, as well as any healing modality, and ultimately into the way in which we understand and experience our Selves.

This course is creatively structured as a programme so that each student can experience the dynamic dance of the elements, allowing the elements to reveal their inherent polarities within our physical and subtle bodies. After 18 days together, I had a completely new perspective of the Elements, as well as a renewed love affair with Nature!

Finally, I feel that I've been guided into a course of study that brings the Wisdom of the sages into an evolved, conscious & modern day approach towards empowering the individual to tap into their own energetic potential. I look forward to continued studies with the EYT programme! ""

Alvaro Madeira, Portugal (Raw Food Chef)
14 Nov 2015
"This course came to me at the right time in my life, As someone who already had a connection to ritual life, I was truly moved as I learned to relate with Mother Nature and her Elements on a much deeper level.

I was expertly guided and supported all the way through my discoveries by these two extraordinary teachers . It is difficult to be more specific, because words don't really describe the feelings that come with moving the Elements into harmony with yourself. I am deeply touched by this course."

Diana Ng, Singapore (Creative Healer)
14 Nov 2015
"The Elemental Yoga Therapy course is not your regular Yoga TTC. instead, it is an immersive experience of the Five Elements within and without. One of the great things I got from this course has been a greater freedom, and yet purpose, in my personal practice - being able to intentionally create a practice that fits what my body needs in this moment to come back into elemental balance."

Katya Melnikova, Russia (Yoga Teacher, Fashion Model)
13 Nov 2015
"The incredible, truly priceless knowledge that I have received during the EYT is always there now. I gained the courage to go in deeper with my emotions and learnt how to access them with much respect and appreciation!

One way that the course affected, and it affected me in many good ways, was how it gave me a clearer path to enter myself and feel my own body in a real natural way, the way that it always felt right but that I had forgotten, even not fully understood until now.

Every day I felt some special energy that was passed along after each class. Ttruly amazing experiences. Thank You!"

Stephanie Bovis, Singapore (Televison Presenter, Yoga Teacher)
13 Nov 2015
"The decades of training, work, and understanding behind the structure of this training were very apparent during the course; the level of knowledge on a multitude of concepts were expressed to formulate a very holistic approach to Yoga Therapy. The fusion of 5 Element Yoga, ZenShiatsu, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Tantra and Healing Therapies was offered in a way that allowed us to make our own decisions on where we lie on this broad spectrum of healing methods.

I loved how I felt free to create my own interpretations of how to choose to apply Elemental Yoga in my practice and in my life.

Jai’s background in South America exploring shamanic healing also allowed for some amazing rituals to be experienced! Very cool!"

"The EYT training helped me reconnect with myself through absorbing and reconnecting to the energies of Nature's Elements. I learned new aspects of Yoga that feel more truthful and makes me realise how easy it is to be "asleep" in my former practices.

I learned that it is through subtlety and simplicity that you find the Yoga to be most effective, both physically and energetically. I am ready to go out with the experience and the comprehensive 'tool box' that comes from this very thorough training in Elemental Yoga Therapy.

I am only at the beginning, but a seed has been planted and I am committed to keep nourishing it and watch it grow. Thank you for a wonderful Yoga experience"

"I have completed 3 training's with this form of Elemental Yoga, and each time the course showed me how to connect even more deeply to the Elements inside me. Teaching others how connecting to Nature and the Elements can heal and transform deeply rooted issues/imbalances is simple when you know how to use this system.

As a Teacher I work in the Norwegian Prison system, and the key practices of Elemental Yoga are fundamental to assisting my students there.

Anyone who is interested in Yoga and transformative work should put this training on their list. It teaches absolutely sincere developmental skills. Elemental Yoga Therapy has taken Yoga to another level for me."

"I came to the Elemental Yoga Therapy Course for two reasons.

First, I wanted to learn techniques to balance my own constitution and imbalances. Secondly, I wanted to start practicing Yoga Therapy in my community.

My 21 day journey of yogic self-inquiry was truly transformative. I am able to see and feel myself as an alchemy of Nature' s Elements. I have this deep sense of connection to the Earth and belonging to her.

I did find some answers to my personal questions, but more importantly I learned how and when to ask the right questions. The course left me completely confident and excited to help the people in my community with this wonderful form of Yoga Therapy"

"With the medicine I have learnt on this course I feel I am able to continue strengthening myself, physically and emotionally. I now have an entirely new perspective on yoga. This is Yoga like no other Yoga, and I love the Therapy that it creates.

The way I experienced the forces of Nature threading me together is beautiful. To find a Teacher in Nature means I carry from this course a medicine that I can share with anyone at any level of Yoga, anywhere along their path of life challenges."

Lill Janne Legard, Norway (Documentary Maker, Director)

"This course stands out by itself, it is a unique and fundamental Yoga path, and has a depth which makes it so very complementary to any other yoga style.

I now see Kundalini Yoga from a whole new perspective and these EYT teachings will enrich my own teaching and personal journey with my practices. Elemental Yoga Therapy is authentic. I am forever grateful and very satisfied by this teaching."

"Having experienced my transformative Nature by balancing the Elements inside me, I learned how to feel myself in a whole new way. I became aware of my cyclic nature and my ability to attune myself to the seasons in order to live in harmony.

Experiencing and learning about the natural medicinal power of Yoga makes me confident in helping other people to balance their energies holistically. During the three weeks of training I received a lot of useful tools in order to practice and teach powerful Yoga.

But most importantly, I feel my own connection to my Earth, my Water, my Fire, my Air, and my Spirit. Feeling this connection allows me to receive Nature's wisdom as my lifelong teacher."

Nicole Gibbard, England (Yoga Teacher, Horse Trainer)

"In just three weeks so many of my own life mysteries and misunderstandings just seem to have naturally fallen into place. Things that were hidden for so long were so easily revealed in such a short space of time.

As we have worked together as one family, we have learned how to help each other, and in doing so, how to help ourselves. A very surprising process.

Never in such a short space of time did I think such a change would be possible. This magical experience is the most powerful thing that has ever happened through me, for me. Thank you."

Siri Arti, South Africa (Children's Yoga Teacher)

"I came to this course quite depleted and far from my center. Each day brought another shift. My light got switched back on and I now feel vital, inspired and reconnected to myself.

Learning about the 5 Elements through Yoga, Nutrition and exploring myself in real time, in real life, taught me deeply, and helped me to heal. The space that is held is completely sacred and is a very powerful opportunity.

This medicine, and the experience altogether, brought me back to myself and in that reconnection, I remember who I am. What a privilege, I am ready to use this Therapy system to hold space for others, so they too can remember."

Kristina Reunanen, Sweden (Yoga Teacher)
18 Nov 2014
"I can honestly say that the Elemental Yoga Therapy training has changed my life. Through the teachings here I have come to have a whole new understanding of what Yoga and Natural holistic medicine is all about.

By holding space in a very inspiring way and sharing of their vast knowledge Jai and Sofia have created a way to help me open my eyes and get in touch with Nature in a very real and direct way. Its hard to put words to the way that supports me, but I have never found a more simple or enjoyable path.

A truly transformational and inspiring Teacher Training that has made me feel confident and eager to go out in the world and start sharing Elemental philosophies and practices with others."

Ashley Lemay, Canada (Yoga Teacher)
18 Nov 2014
"Having now taken the Elemental Yoga Therapy training my eyes have been opened to a whole new outlook on Yoga, it is filled with a much more meaningful purpose.

This experience has provided me with the knowledge and awareness of our deep connection with Nature. I can not say enough about this course and the journey it takes you on along the way, as you experience the energies for yourself. A revelation in Yoga

My personal experience has provided me with the way to make Yoga a powerful medicinal therapy as it has proven itself through my own changes and growth. I will forever be grateful for this experience."

Helen Clarkin, South Africa (Yoga Teacher)
18 Nov 2014
"To put into words what I have experienced over this course could not do it justice. It is cliche to say it, but I truly feel like this has been ' life changing'.

I have always loved Yoga, but I have been searching since the start of my yoga journey for something....? Lots of books, lots of courses, lots of different techniques and methods of teaching and I still have not been satisfied, knowing there has to be more...?

I arrived saying I am looking for a Teacher, my Guru, believing this was what I was missing. I can honestly say I think I have found her, in Nature, in the 5 Elements. I'm a little surprised!

This experience was full of numerous energetic "first times", which solidifies the beauty of my learning, and makes it easy to process what I need to unlearn!
I am fully equipped and ready to go into the world and begin to share and help others find their connection too."

Jennifer Kenny, Ireland (Agitator, Educator, Organiser)

"I am 52 and took a leap of faith to go on an Elemental Yoga Therapy training. I don't think I have ever worked so hard in my life, and the returns have been huge.The material is rock solid and has really put me in a position where I can see a path to lifelong strength and health.

This is a beautiful way of ' living yoga' and is built on a deep and very powerful understanding and appreciation of the Feminine in Nature.

I feel 30 again - strong, toned, flexible, and vibrant. I highly recommend this for anyone willing to put in the work, who is looking to deepen, broaden and transform their practice to something that nurtures body, soul, mind and vitality."

Cindy Andries, Belgium (Self Owner Business)

"This training brought me a lot of awareness of how to let go of old patterns and ideas and beliefs that don't serve me anymore. I was blown away by the things that came up during the 5 Element practices and by the energy I felt and still feel.

I've never worked in a group, as I took my Teacher Training privately with the teachers from The Elemental Yoga School, and it was really special that nobody was judging or comparing themselves to me or each other. The way this course is taught makes it easy to take your own path inside the group. It is a very special way of teaching.

My very heartfelt thanks to the teachers"

Dominique Van Der Bos, Holland (Yoga Teacher)
18 Nov 2014
"This training is rich in skills and practices that effected me in a very surprising way. The most important thing I've learned is to listen more to myself, and to use the Elements to help me hear where I have lost balance. I discovered that all we need to know in life is being mirrored through the way Nature creates harmony. We only need to open ourselves in this way to receive that wisdom.

The skills in this course are based on the experience of the course itself, so I feel fully capable to walk others through Elemental Yoga Therapy processes and into the inner conversation that needs to happen if they are going to make the changes they are wanting to make.

Once you've started connecting to this wisdom, its all about keeping it simple. It just feels right."

Rachel Allen, England (Yoga Teacher)

"This training is simply transformative. I left feeling connected to myself in a way I haven’t felt before – steady and yet expansive. I now have a new set of principles that not only align my life with Nature but to also help me to support others in a transformative way. Magic! The teachers created a space for growth and development, within a depth of yoga principles and a true connection to Nature. I walked out ready to start working with my clients."

Christian Gentile, Italy (Yoga Teacher, Bodyworker)

"The EYT journey taught me how the Elements are fundamental to yoga philosophy. It has has given me a totally new perspective about yoga and life in general, and as a Yoga teacher and massage therapist, this course gave me the right tools to make great changes in both of these practices.

Learning from the Elemental Yoga Teachers was a special experience as I learned in a beautifully supportive environment and grew through their encouragement to keep experiencing and feeling the effect of the Elemental practices on myself.

I am looking forward for more training with you guys! Hari Om."

Supriya Susiarjo, Singapore (Yoga Teacher, Fine Artist)

"This course is so beneficial for anyone who wants to improve their health and life style, and I think all yoga teachers would benefit from understanding the 5 Elements. This was both a training and a retreat for me, as we worked and played together. Both the Elemental Yoga Teachers provided an excellent support ground in guiding us through the course, and were very complementary to each other."

Laura McBride, England (Yoga Teacher)

"I have attended 3 Yoga courses with The Elemental Yoga School & continue to study Elemental Yoga Therapy with them. Every step in this journey felt Sacred. Each course has shown me magic beyond my expectations, by deeply enriching my connection to Nature, to other human beings, to life.

These guys have a sincere intention towards fully delivering on Experiential Learning: a true way to teach Yoga.

The Elemental Yoga Teachers offer their full-hearted support for people to grow & teach Yoga in a style that is unique to them as individuals. They encourage students to find their own Yoga, to bring balance to their constitution & more harmony to life in action.

Elemental Yoga Therapy offers people empowerment to take their health into their own hands. I choose to continue my study with Elemental Yoga School because I feel supported by the teachers in my teaching and because it is an important time for human beings to be connecting with Nature’s Wisdom.
It left me with a deep sense of responsibility to stay connected to the qualities and gifts I have been given."

Silvia Facchinello, Italy (Yoga Teacher, Aid Worker)

"This course was a journey that gently guided me to reconnect with Nature and its healing power, and I fully experienced the transformative effects of connecting with the Elements. The teachers are both open hearted and super friendly and have shown me the missing ingredient to move forward in my life. EYT offers a totally new approach of experiencing, rather than learning and remembering. A sharing of precious knowledge. Amazing!"

Rhiannon Wynn, Yoga Teacher (USA)
12 Jul 2013
"For a couple of years I had been considering doing a Yoga Therapy course and when I read the Elemental Yoga Therapy course outline, it really resonated with me. The teachings provided to us during the course illustrated, in such a beautiful way, that we are inseparable from Nature and the Elements. We are Nature.

The way the teachers guided us was really special. They teach by encouraging you to really feel the effects of the Elements. I also found it really helpful to be reminded to not try and grasp at the vast amount of information. As we continued the course and the practices, this information was being repeated in numerous ways, which created a process of assimilation. In this way, the teachings ended up speaking for themselves.

I have long believed in the healing that is intrinsic in our yoga practice and what I've learned with Elemental Yoga School are tools that I am happy to be able to share with my students and others to promote personal growth and healing.
Hari Om Tat Sat!"

AnneMarie Rozenboom, Holland (Yoga Teacher)

"The Elemental Yoga School Teachers have been great in guiding me during this 5 Element process! In an organic way, they gave me the confidence to become a yoga teacher, even though at first I did not believe this could be my path. With joyful and lighthearted spirits, they never lost my attention; their approach to teaching is seriously interesting and still often very entertaining.

The personal and emphatic approach of them surprises me over and over again and I found that in a creative way I really came closer to my spiritual side without having a specific intention at the beginning.

Through the Elements they know exactly what each and every student needs during their course. I keep coming back to The Elemental Yoga School !"

Kim Stansfield, New Zealand (Yoga Teacher of 30 Years)

"The Elemental Yoga Therapy Training has had such a significant impact on me as a person, my connection with Nature and my connection with others.

I understand myself, my body and my place in the world so much better and I feel excited again about my own journey is this world.

The course is expertly laid out and couldn´t be taught in a more clear and concise way. The teachers of The Elemental Yoga School know their subject matter so well and they create a safe, serious yet also lighthearted learning environment. They mirror the balance we seek in the elements in they way they present the course. I would recommend this course to anyone who is serious about yoga, who is seeking a deeper connection with themselves and the Nature around.

Life Changing!"

I have felt such a strong sense of community within the group, of real belonging, of equality, maturity and care.

Thank you Elemental Yoga for creating the space for this journey with so much brilliance, sincerity, humor, intelligence and unwavering, unconditional support. Your ability to mange energy and nurture growth is ridiculously impressive and appreciated."

In training each participant on how to use the diagnostic tools from the most ancient and ultimate reality, Nature, we are able to tap into the wisdom of the planet. I have enjoyed the techniques I learned for applying this wisdom to help heal the individual, and the imbalances in their expressions.

I loved my training with Elemental Yoga School and value the way it has shifted my view of the world, and of the tools that are available for self healing.""

About Elemental Yoga as Medicine

The 2 courses I have now completed with Elemental Yoga School changed my life in many ways through changes it helped me make in my perception, my beliefs, my own stories and my thoughts... Connecting with nature around and within me is one the most powerful experiences I have ever had.

Since I was a child I behaved with symptoms of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and in the beginning of my twenties it became a severe form that resulted in a life full of anxiety, self-injury and depression. While the few years of therapy I undertook helped for sure, I was not beyond this behavior until the Portugal course in 2011.

For the first time in my life I experienced days without OCD. The course brought me deeply into myself, it showed me how to feel so connected to myself which made me realize that everything is changing all the time; around us and within us. I deeply realized that the OCD was my way to protect myself, and something I had wanted to hold on to.
Connecting to the possibility of change, trusting in life itself and the deep connection with my own strong center showed me another life. At the Elemental Yoga Therapy course in 2012, I made an even stronger connection to myself. I feel blessed to be a student of The Elemental Yoga School."

Being a diabetic with at times serious and confronting complications through the last 10 years, I am now on a special personal healing journey and the input which I got from your Teacher Training was invaluable. This fantastic integration of yoga and the 5 Elements has forever given me a new perspective upon viewing and healing my disease. Elemental Yoga as medicine is for everybody with health challenges."
