earth, water, fire, wind, aether ........................ We visualize the body as composed of the five elements: The heart, lungs and kidneys are of the earth element, whose makeup is earth. The blood and fluid are of the water element, whose makeup is water. The heat of the body is of the fire element, whose makeup is fire. Our breath is of the wind element, whose makeup is wind. The human body is formed from these four illusory elements. In times of illness, the four elements are in disharmony, and upon death, the four elements are dispersed. In addition, residing within the body of man is a unique spiritual nature which is known as soul, which is very wonderful and subtle. This is the space element. http://tbc-erooh.org/teachings/books/051_highest_yoga_and_mahamudra/09_circulation_of_mantra_breathing.htm
