Flow through a yoga practice that elevates and enlivens your being while giving your mind the respite it needs. We are drowning in information but starving for wisdom - it can be challenging to even hear our own thoughts. Let that life go for now as you dive into standing poses, inversions, twists, hip openers, light heart opening, pranayama, and restoratives….all purposely steeped in mindfulness, focus, intention, and plenty of fun along the way. Leave your devices behind and float away on a mountain high, then return with the gift of presence for yourself and your community.

Journey through the Five Koshas – Align Your Layers of Being
Join Himalayan Yoga Master Yogrishi Vishvketu (Vishva-ji) as he guides you on an ever-deepening journey through the five layers of being, with a particular focus on healing ancestral blueprints and samskaras (patterns) in each layer:

• Anamaya Kosha (physical layer)
• Pranamaya Kosha (pranic layer)
• Manomaya Kosha (mental/emotional layer)
• Vijnanamaya Kosha (intuitive layer)
• Anandamaya Kosha (bliss layer)

In this workshop you will learn about the original anatomy of yoga and experience how awareness of these layers can revitalize our practice and support us in daily life. There will also be a full Five Koshas class in which we repeat a short sequence three times, gradually bringing your awareness inside. The class will end with a spontaneous meditation to savour the lightness of being.
