Daily schedule

Each morning, you will concentrate on one of the five elements, earth, water, fire, air, and ether.

Afternoons are flexible for students to enjoy, travel to tourist sites, or enjoy optional practice teaching of the five element stories and magic carpets.

Five elements

According to the ancient texts on yoga, every part of creation is composed of the five elements: earth, water, fire, air, and ether. Each of these elements affects the functioning of your body and mind. This five elements training teaches five creative yoga stories and five magic carpet relaxations based on each of the five elements. Through these five creative yoga stories and magic carpet relaxations, you will explore the nature of each of the five elements.

The partner yoga poses, group poses, traditional yoga poses, breathing exercises, and chants integrated into each story create the experience of each element. Harmonizing your body and mind with the source of the five elements, you will share a glimpse of the unity inherent in all creation.

Partner poses

The partner poses allow the experience of mutual support and inspire people to spend time with their loved ones and go beyond daily roles. People may improve their relationships as they enhance physical and mental well-being. This innovative approach to the ancient art of yoga, full of creativity and joy, allows people of all ages to share a taste of the 'rasa' or nectar inherent in yoga.

    "Wonderfull yoga with Teressa!", edited

  • Review by Rebecca from USA

    "Thank you so much for the great yoga teacher training for children. I have learned so much over the last two weeks. Not only have I learned to teach children the beautiful art of yoga, but I have also learned to be a better yoga teacher. I came to Pondicherry to be trained, yet I feel I am coming away with something even more valuable: grace, peace, and santosha. "

    "Thank you for teaching many life lessons as well as helping me let go of some past hurt that I came to India to heal. I never expected to be going home as light and free as I am. So, thank you for not only being a great yoga teacher, but also a great friend. I wish nothing but grace, beauty, peace, and success for you. " website edited, edited

  • Review by Brigitte from Brussels, Belgium

    "We had an amazing session with Teressa and her friend in Pondicherry. She gave a two-day course to me and the two girls (nine and 13 years old). Her material was well prepared and extremely well suited for a session with children. She gave the session with true dedication and made it fun while stretching us in our learning at the same time. Teressa herself is a very enjoyable person and the hours with her were therefore really fun. I have tried several yoga courses for children and find Teressa's sessions particularly good for families with children. Even young children would enjoy this quite a lot." website, edited

  • Review by Avni from Geneva, Switzerland

    "The family yoga program that Teressa designed was just the perfect thing for us and our two girls (ages nine and six years). Teressa's easy, engaging, and fun for kids program stayed with us even after the week is over and we are now striving to keep it up back amidst the routine life of schools and work. The story telling approach to yoga was just wonderfully creative and the kids still remember the tales of the five elements. For us, the parents, the chance to learn how to further bond with our kids through yoga is a lifelong learning we will carry with us. Thanks to Teressa and her wonderful trainee Mitu. The kids talk about Pondicherry as the best holiday they have had." website, edited
