September 11-13, 2016
Garrison, New York

In this retreat we move deeper into the koshas, or layers of the Self, unwrapping like a gift, the inner-workings of the pranic and mental bodies. Teachers through the ages have taught us that we are much more than just our physical body, and in this retreat we begin the process of moving our awareness through the layers of our being toward the core. Participants will examine the healing relationship that the pranamaya and manomaya koshas share, and better understand, through theory and practice, how working at this level can bring balance to the body and mind.

You will explore:

● How different pranayamas affect our energetic system
● How to assess which pranayamas will bring about balance and healing

Join us if you:

● Want to learn how to use pranayama chanting and chakra balancing to affect balance and improve he
