WHY YOU ARE MORE THAN YOUR THOUGHTS, YOUR EMOTIONS, OR YOUR PAIN

🌹
Most of the time I teach yoga in English. And one day I’ll be able to teach yoga in Welsh too…
🌼
Nevertheless the roots of yoga would have been in languages from the Indian subcontinent like Sanscrit.
🌸
And whilst it is a beautiful language, I don’t use it too much: too much complex language can make the practice of yoga inaccessible.
🌺
But this last year I’ve been running a yoga teacher training and one of the yogic concepts we have touched on is Koshas.
🌷
Koshas is a Sanscrit word which doesn’t really have a direct translation. I usually explain it as ‘Layers of Being’.
🌹
We are – and we are also more than – our bodies, our breath, our emotions, and our personal conciousness.
💐
Below is a meditation on the Koshas for you that explores this. It’s freely available on my YouTube. You can do it sitting or lying down.

This was part of a longer workshop on Koshas I taught last month. (The full recording of this is on the Virtual Yoga Vault, which is my library of pre-recorded classes available to “All the Yogas” subscribers and Yoga Teacher trainees. Send me a message if you’d like to know how to get into the Vault…)
