According to yoga tradition, every individual has five koshas (or sheaths) that range from the densest part of our being (the physical body) to the most subtle (the bliss body). If we intend to live a balanced, healthy life, the tradition says it’s important to attend to all of our bodies.
In this enlightening and joyful program, Ellen guides you through an experience of the koshas through the practice of yin yoga. For each kosha, you’ll do a sequence of familiar prop-supported yin poses designed to help you connect with the qualities of that sheath. You’ll do hip-openers, heart-openers, inversions, twists, forward bends, and more.
There are five thirty-minute practices: Annamaya Kosha Yin (for the physical body), Pranamaya Kosha Yin (for the life force body), Manomaya Kosha Yin (for the body of the instinctive mind), Vijnanamaya Kosha Yin (for the wisdom or intellect body), and Anandamaya Kosha Yin (for the bliss body). Throughout the practices, Ellen offers you suggestions, visualizations, and reflective questions to support your integration of the mental and/or physical aspects of each sheath.
Enjoy this calming exploration of yoga philosophy, yin, and your own personal experience.
