Embodied Yoga with Anna 8 Week Course May 2024

This course is Onsite

Course Description:

Embodied Yoga focuses on strengthening your connection with yourself, increasing your ability to feel and experience yourself from within.  

In each class, we will explore the various layers of our being (the 5 koshas) through meditation, mantra, pranayama (breathing techniques), asana practice (yoga poses) and relaxation (savasana). 

In each class, we practise creating balance between the solar and lunar energies within our being, solar energy being the more activating one and the lunar energy being the more nourishing and calming one. 

Through yogic practices, you are invited to listen and feel into your body so that you can create more harmony, balance and resilience from within and tap into your inherent wisdom.  

The 5 koshas 

  • Annamaya kosha (physical body)  
  • Pranamaya kosha (energy body) 
  • Manomaya kosha (mind body)
  • Vijnanamaya kosha (wisdom body) 
  • Anandamaya kosha (bliss body) 

In Embodied Yoga we work on strengthening the physical body while creating lots of space for self-inquiry, introspection and relaxation. The body is our gateway to connecting with the more subtle aspects of our being, to understanding ourselves and our place in the world. 

Each class is sprinkled with a little bit of yoga philosophy so that you have the opportunity to connect with the essence of your true nature and apply the teachings in your daily life.
