Last week we focused on the Fire Element in our yoga classes here at The Yoga Room. Fire is light and heat. Fire is transformative and is associated with willpower and creative force. Fire is connected with the south, the summer, and purification. In the body Fire is associated with the head, solar plexus and thighs (so our asana practice included lots of core work and some strong standing postures last week!). Fire imbalances include headaches, eye disorders, digestive disorders, liver problems, and pain and weakness of the legs. Too much fire results in the typical type A personality – stressed and burned-out! Unbalanced Fire shows as anger and resentment. Well-balanced fire is forgiveness and enthusiasm.
