The ancient teachings of the Koshas describe, and are the basis for understanding yoga as a holistic practice. These teachings on the koshas––the five coverings of the soul, are the meeting point of the three of the most luminous wisdom traditions: Yoga, Vedanta and Tantra. The koshas breathe life into the search for how to reach the highest plateau of practice. The teachings we will explore in this training aim to unravel the great mysteries of life as well as to help you to find your true calling. They will liberate you to discover your ultimate capacities and to thrive in relationship. In short, your exploration of the koshas will move you to become a master of your inner and outer world.  

Through theory, practice and the insights of the ancient written and oral traditions, we explore these vital teachings and the specific practices that touch each of the five individual koshas and that lead to greater balance, wisdom, and freedom. 

The Kosha, Kriya, Yoga training includes dedicated practices (asana, pranayama, and meditation) that address each of the five layers. Yogarupa will lead you on a journey toward understanding, both for personal practice or, for those of you who are teachers, your students’ practice. This five-day training is designed for dedicated practitioners, aspiring teachers, or those already teaching. Provided you are one of these, all levels are welcome. 

The completion of at least one other PYMT is strongly recommended prior to attending this course, but not required. This can be accomplished by taking one of our online trainings: ParaYoga Master Training Online Curriculum
