Yoga Gently 12.11.21: Annamaya Kosha at practice of meeting our edges


The first in a series of seven classes exploring the kosha model – an ancient philosophical model of self.  We begin at the outmost layer of the model, the Annamaya kosha.  We will explore this outer layer somatically by coming into contact with the edges of ourself, skin, bones and the places where we can define our self from something else.  In this practice we also consider the edge of what we want/need.

Suggested equipment:

  • Yoga mat
  • Stack of blankets
  • Yoga belt or a long scarf
  • Two yoga bricks (or hard copy books)
  • Yoga bolster (or firm sofa cushion)
