Five Elements Embodiment Series

A week-long series of 30-minute embodiment classes with enjoyable, intentional exercises that promote vitality and healing in specific body systems. Each will provide a full workout with cardio, strength, and mobility while deepening appreciation for the interconnection of matter and soul.

Each day this week, move through one 30-minute exercise class, listening and responding to your body’s wisdom. Let the messages of each element settle in afterward. Then move on to the next one. On day six, we flow through all five elements. On day seven, rest.

As you return and repeat over multiple weeks, notice how the imagery comes more naturally. Notice what words, body parts, colors, and songs flag your attention. Notice what comes up when you repeat this week in difference phases of your cycle, or different seasons of the year.

Essential Nature

I see the nature of God

In the qualities around and within me.

Water is like water

Water is like God

God’s exhale, God’s being

I am like water

What does the essential nature of water

tell me about the essential nature of God?

What does the essential nature of God

tell me about the essential nature of myself,

of my children,

of those easy to love,

and those hard to love

I experience God’s nature

In the wood that grows

rooting, sprouting

bending, swaying

wise and green.

In the fire that invigorates

pumping, beating,

crackling with vitality,

fertile and lively.

In the earth that composts

beneath and within me

speaking of constancy,

right here, right now.

In the metal that shimmers

strong yet moldable,

absorbing and eliminating,


In the water that flows

downward, onward

purifying spirit and body,

part of the river.

I experience God in the symbols

of biology, anatomy, nature.

Nothing unintentional,

Everything a message.

As I move, I listen.

As I listen, I become

a better listener.

About Instructor

Megan Hewes

My background in fitness has expanded under the vitalistic guidance of The Nest into a musical movement practice therapeutic for body and soul. What is Embodiment? A spirit that not only inhabits a body, but acts as the body. A being so practiced at listening and feeling, that all experiences are met at the highest level.
