THE FOUR ELEMENTS

fuoco     aria     acqua     terra

According to ancient theory, all substances – both the microcosm and the macrocosm – consist of the four elements: fire (weightless), air (gaseous), water (liquid), and earth (solid).

  • Fire: the cleansing and life-giving element, it stands for the beginning of all life that arises from its energy.
  • Air: intangible, it is the energy of life we inhale, without it, we would die; it cannot be captured and stands for the cosmic breath.
  • Water: the source of life, which develops into a stream and finally into a river before it flows into the ocean, overcoming all the obstacles it encounters in its path and penetrates deep into the Earth itself.
  • The Earth: solid and abundant, it stands for primeval matter, takes life and nourishes it.

NATURA DOM | ZIANO DI FIEMME

THE FOUR ELEMENTS are considered visible and invisible, and physical and spiritual at the same time. This is exactly what NATURA DOM, the gardens of the four elements, is all about. They lie in a river park and illustrate the harmony and power of the four elements in a unique way.

Nestled in this dreamlike landscape, the four energetic gardens are particularly suitable for relaxing. They appeal to all senses and sharpen our awareness of our own body. Here, we are in harmony with nature, with its shapes, colours, and sounds.

*Hatha Yoga

This is a form of yoga based on various physical exercises (Asana), breathing exercises (Pranayama), and cleansing exercises (Kriya). “Hatha” means “sun and moon” or “power”. The original goal of Hatha Yoga was to strengthen the body so that one is strong enough for the spiritual path – meditation – and comes into harmony with oneself (Samadhi). Today, different styles are practiced: Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Lyengar etc. But, they are all based on Hatha Yoga. Yoga is a very old holistic teaching. The term has its origin in the Sanskrit word “Yuj”, which means “to connect”. One could translate it as “becoming one with the mind through awareness”. Yoga describes the path to self-knowledge, the development of consciousness, and the path to spirituality and immortality in one. As a result, yoga is not only good for the body, but also for the mind and the soul.
