a journey through the koshas
UNLOCK YOGA'S POWERFUL POTENTIAL
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
We often hear that yoga aims to unite the mind and body, but what about bringing into harmony our body, breath, mind, wisdom and spirit, to get a glimpse of our true self? In this interactive workshop you will discover the five ‘layers’ or ‘sheaths’ called Koshas that make up our being to create a truly immersive yoga experience.
According to traditional yogic philosophy each Kosha is contained within the next and can be experienced as different levels of consciousness, from the gross or physical to the subtle. Diving into each of the koshas can help to bring new meaning and depth to your practice, taking it well beyond the physical. Join me on a journey into the true essence of yoga and leave with a deeper understanding of yourself and this ancient philosophy.
