JOURNEY TO DEEPER PRESENCE WITH THE KOSHAS

Yoga is a journey back to a deeper connection with presence and, as with any journey, it can be helpful to have a map. The Kosha Model looks at how our physical, energetic, mental, emotional, and spiritual "layers" or Koshas can act as a template for illuminating this terrain.In this workshop we will explore how the practice of posture (asana), breath-work (pranayama), restorative (pratyahara), and meditation (dharana) serve to create a more lasting connection with presence and spirit, and a way to cultivate a richer and more alive practice for life.
