Five Layer Practice: a workshop on the Koshas

  • Supta Yoga Nantucket 9 Amelia Drive Nantucket, MA, 02554 United States (map)

This workshop provides an integrative approach to understanding the different layers of your being. In yogic philosophy, the Koshas, often translated as "layers" or "sheaths", are a holistic system for mapping the self. The five layers are physical, energetic, mental/emotional, wisdom and bliss. In this workshop, we will gain a clearer understanding of our individual relationship to each individual layer and also observe how the layers interact and coexist with each other. Through movement, meditation, observation and reflection we will work to engage and respond to the qualities of each layer with more compassion and allowance, and less judgment and attachment. By working with the Koshas in your yoga practice, you allow your yoga practice to become a place to transcend your limiting patterns and align with your highest self.

The first portion of the class will be movement based, and the second portion will be composed of meditation, reflection and relaxation. Physically appropriate for students who have been to at least 10 yoga classes.
