Exploring Yin Yoga’s relationship to the Koshas and how it affects all our layers/realms.
Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with postures, or asanas, that are held for longer periods of time. Yin applies moderate stress to the connective tissues of the body—the tendons, fascia, and ligaments—with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. A more meditative approach to yoga, yin aims at cultivating awareness of inner silence, and bringing to light a universal, interconnecting quality.
A Kosha (also Kosa; Sanskrit कोश, IAST: kośa), usually rendered “sheath”, is a covering of the Atman, or Self according to Vedantic philosophy. There are five Koshas, and they are often visualized as the layers of an onion.
