Panchamaya Series: 5 Layers of the Self
with Margo Sorum, C-IAYT
Human beings are complex. We have a body, but we are more than our body. We have a mind, but we are more than our mind. Through the Vedic tradition, the complexity of the human being is revealed in the Taittiriya Upanishad through a five layered model called the Panchamaya Model. In this series we will explore the five layers, or koshas, of this model and build a vast tool box of yoga techniques to optimize your experience of being human. This is the foundation of Yoga Therapy as recognized by the International Association of Yoga Therapy.
Whether you are a new student of yoga, or a seasoned yoga teacher, you will gain personal insight into how to read your body physically, organically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. You will learn how to thoughtfully design yoga practices to support your human experience on any given day, month, season or year by becoming sensitive to the multi-layered being that you are.
