Our Sacred Anatomy: The Koshas – A Pathway to Health & Wholeness
Sep 21, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm| $80
According to the Tantric perspective, we are composed of 5 “sheaths” or bodies called the Koshas. Come explore this profound and enlightening paradigm that reveals the 5 layers of self: the physical body, the energetic body, the mental/emotional body, the wisdom/intuitive body, and the bliss body.
Learn ayurvedic and yogic practices that balance, heal and deepen your awareness of each of these bodies and how they influence one another. For teachers, you will also learn how to integrate these teachings into your classes to deepen your students’ understanding and experience of self.
Saturday, September 21
These hours may be eligible towards our 300-hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Training program.
Please note, there will be a Teaching Practicum held the next day, Sunday, September 22, 1:00-4:00 pm, for those who wish to expand upon this offering.
