The Power of 5
In groupings of three, four and five, yoga provides a world view with respect to ethics, stages of life, modes of nature, modification of consciousness, movements of prana, types of students and life trajectories. With these three workshops, Gabriel will elucidate the descriptions of triads, quaternios and quintuples, each supplemented by asana sequences aimed at bringing it all together.
Week 3: Quintuples
Prana, or life force, courses not only through our physical body but through its subtler sheaths as well. Those sheaths or koshas are: annamaya kosha, pranamaya kosha, manomaya kosha, vijnanamaya kosha, and anandamaya kosha. As we study and apply the discoveries of yoga, that which helps as well as that which hinders our growth comes into clear focus.
