Journey Through The Layers of The Self

An Exploration of the 5 Koshas with Yogrishi Vishvketu


 

In this 4-hour workshop, you will learn about the original anatomy of yoga – the five

layers of being. By aligning the layers, you can access deeper awareness of your true

potential.

The workshop begins with:

  • An explanation of each kosha and the yoga practices that purify and expand your awareness of each:
    • Anamaya Kosha (physical layer)
    • Pranamaya Kosha (pranic layer)
    • Manomaya Kosha (mental/emotional layer)
    • Vijnanamaya Kosha (intuitive layer)
    • Anandamaya Kosha (bliss layer)
  • A Five Koshas Yoga practice in which you’ll be guided on an ever-deepening journey, including asana, pranayama and mantra, relaxation and meditation.

After a short break, we will continue with linking session focused on specific koshas:

  • An extended pranayama practice to expand our energetic being;
  • Soundwork and Vedic mantra to help to release dross from the mental consciousness; and
  • A restorative Yoga Nidra practice to establish fresh intentions for your life.

The workshop will close with a spontaneous blissful meditation to allow you to savour the bliss of anandamaya kosha.

Post-Bhakti Fest Immersion with Mas Vidal

 

Healing the Mind-Body Relationship with Yoga and Ayurveda

September 11


Join Mas Vidal on a journey to experience the core themes of his recently released book titled Sun, Moon and Earth as an essential paradigm for holistic wellness. Both yoga and ayurveda provide profound wisdom, practical techniques and a natural approach to health and wellness, that is, largely ignored by the commercial yoga movement. Let us dive deeper into the mystical practices of yoga for raising consciousness through asana, pranayama, bandas, mudras and devotion to enter the river of heaven in the spine as per the mystical teachings of Yogananda and Sivananda. Sage Patanjali himself is recognized for expounding the essence of yoga, influenced the early movement of ayurveda and propagated the importance of Sanskrit; he also had great devotion towards Krishna’s teachings. With this perspective in mind let us explore the mind-body relationship as an eternal one and as an intrinsic component to health and happiness; however, achieving this requires embracing a new relationship with life.

Additional perspectives includes, understanding the energies of planetary cosmology as per the dynamics of the sun-moon-earth to elucidate the wisdom of the sacred texts and share fascinating perspectives for attaining success on the path of personal transformation and self care. Let us gather to enjoy the fascinating story of yoga and ayurveda, embracing it as our own powerful narrative to bridge our inner spirit with our outer nature through the vehicle of postural yoga, metaphors, yantras, science and spirituality and many practical exercises to bring you back to your natural state of oneness.

The workshop begins with:

  • Redefining Health as per the Indic traditions
  • The Mind-Body Relationship: Its history, the Bengali yogi’s and its importance in health and wellness.
  • The Missing Link of Yoga Sadhana: Asana-Pranayama-Pratyahara
  • Yoga Therapy that Embraces Ayurveda
  • Yoga & Ayurveda for Women
  • Spiritual Ecology for Personal HealingAnd much more…
