Koshas -Journey Through the Layers from Self to Soul

Your Self revealed! Your Self remembered! In Sanskrit, Kosha means “sheath” or “veil.” These sheaths are essentially our “outer coverings” that provide a format for us to understand and experience our individual-ness, as well as provide us with the physical, energetic, mental, and causal structures to help us evolve.

Whether you are a practitioner, teacher, or one who inspires, gain mastery over your physical and energetic bodies and clear your space for more effective transformation and transmission. Together we go to the heart of Yoga by expanding your light so that you can ignite the light of others. Become more than a yoga teacher. Become an innovator so you can teach from a place of deeper “knowing.” More advanced asana, pranayama, meditation, and healing techniques will be introduced, with an emphasis on the experiential aspects.

Topics include:

Understand how the 5 sheaths of consciousness, the koshas, really work and take a journey from your ego to your soul.

Learn how to unearth and purify the unconscious material stored in each the Koshas through asana, pranayama, meditation, kriya, and yoga nidra

Go to the deepest, most subtle, aspects of the koshas through Yoga Nidra (Yogic Sleeping) to allow power of soul to support all of your endeavors.

Koshas - Journey Through the Layers from Self to Soul Required Reading:

Yoga Nidra, Swami Satyananda Saraswati

Tantra says, “Yatha pindande, tatha brahmande—Whatever is in the body is also in the universe.” Learn how to recognize the Universal Truth expressed in your body - your personal roadmap and toolbox to understanding.  As you refine your listening, you gain access to more of your Highest Self, allowing you to be a larger conduit for Joy and Resplendence.  As you become softer and  more still, you hear the voice of your more subtle anatomy.  Discover deep communication as you embody the "mind" of your different physical systems (bones, muscles, connective tissue, organs, etc…) By taking this potent and subtle journey into Self as Body,  converse with the space between the cells as the pathway to ultimate healing.  Learn how to practice, teach, and heal from your Dhi, your clear and receptive heart.  This immersion also addresses yoga as healer by refining our ability to see, listen, and touch.  Explore the healing power of touch as you experience and embody delicious hands-on adjustments.

Topics Include:

  • Learn to listen through your Systems Anatomy
  • Practice the art of refined touch - yoga teacher as healer - to reach different systems of the body
  • Use of System Anatomy themes and bhavana for clearer transmission and practice
  • Explore classroom and communication dynamics by understanding the different “minds” of the room
  • Delve deeper as you expand and refine your concept of Ahimsa (non-violence)

Alchemize Your Asana: Harness Your Power to Heal

untitled shoot13BG-7.jpg

 The foundation of an alchemical yoga practice is skillful use of Prana.  In this immersion, we will take our sadhana to a whole new level where Yoga is management of the energetic body (Pranamaya Kosha).  Sequencing (Vinyasa Krama) through the lens of prana has the power to clear and heal every layer of your being - physically, mentally, and vibrationally.  This increased level of clarity will allow you to bring your highest Self more fully into every aspect of your life, both on and off the mat.  More advanced pranayama, meditation, yoga nidra and healing techniques will be introduced, with an emphasis on the experiential aspects.

Topics Include:

  • Exploration of the concept of the Prana, Space, and Life Force
  • Developing and inspiring your personal practice and/or teaching
  • Tantra as alchemy: Understanding and application of Tantric teachings and techniques in asana, pranayama, and meditation
  • Understanding and applying the bio-energetics of asana and pranayama
  • Adhikara, sequencing, vinyasa krama and use of themes and bhavana for clearer transmission
  • Find your voice: Application of the Yoga Scriptural Texts, i.e. Yoga Sutras, Shiva Sutras, Upanishads, and Bhaghavad Gita
  • Alchemical integration with Yoga Nidra
