Prajna Yoga: Activating the Five Sheaths with Tias Little

Performance Hall

These intensive sessions will investigate the five koshas. The koshas are sheaths, layers or casings within the body and suggest a progression from outer to inner and from gross to subtle.

The koshas have physical, mental, and emotional attributes that will be explored. Sessions include Moving against Gravity/Moving with Gravity and The Lateral Sheath.
