The five sheaths, or Koshas interpenetrate each other and encase the soul like the layers of an onion. As you continue to practice the physical asana (poses) of yoga, you begin to realize there is more to the practice than pressing into a handstand or binding the leg behind your head. There is a whole system of energy that the Yogis have explored to help lift the veil of illusion of separation and connect you to your union, the highest of your consciousness.
The Five Koshas are:
Annamaya-kosha (food sheath, Earth element)
Pranamaya-kosha (vital sheath, Water element)
Manomaya-kosha (mental sheath, Fire element)
Vijnanamaya-kosha (intellect, Air element)
Anandamaya-kossa (bliss sheath, Space element)
In this 90 minute workshop with Crystal Rainbow Borrelli, you will dive into the five layers or sheaths of the Koshas through meditation, visualization and the physical practice of yoga.
