Annamaya Kosha

October 30, 2011

During classes in Alderley Edge & Wilmslow over the next 5 weeks we will be looking at the five layers or sheaths of the body known in Sanskrit as the Pancha Kosha. The Pancha Kosha describe the body as multi-dimensional, similar to the layers of an onion, with the centre as a spiritual dimension.  Each layer or sheath of the body vibrates at a different frequency, the outer layer vibrating at the slowest rate and the most inner layer vibrating at the fastest rate or frequency.

During this week’s lessons we will be working with Annamaya Kosha, the physical layer of the body.  We often move and use the body without feeling how it responds which can make you feel a little spacey or anxious.  Once you learn how to feel your body, to sense it from within, your attention will become grounded.  Consciously inhabiting your physical body in this way can have a settling effect and can bring more presence and ease to your life.  Learning to feel your body and move inside the postures will help to protect you from injuring yourself.
