Select and adapt self-care practices for your unique needs. In a world where we are swimming in posts about #selfcare, discernment is key. How can you decide what aspects of your Self truly need your care? In this interactive session we will introduce the yogic concept of the Koshas (the five layers of our being) as a tool for self-assessment and fine tuning our practices. We will explore our sense of balance at the level of each kosha using gentle yoga, breathwork, guided meditation, conversation and journaling. By refining our approach to self-care we enhance our most subtle Kosha, the bliss body - our sense of innate joy and connection.
