5 Koshas Meditation Practice (All Levels) with Miku Lenentine
(Jan 13 to Feb 17, 2019)
In this class, we will explore the 5 Koshas and also the 5 Vayus taught in the ancient yogic texts. Put simply, we will experience meditation focusing on each of the Koshas including the material body, the breath or pranic body, the mental body, the wisdom body and the bliss body. We will begin with a simple introduction to the 5 bodies and the 5 vayus (or winds) and then actually experience each of these bodies as we work through simple mindful breathing exercises shifting our awareness to each of these layers in our selves. This practice is deeply relaxing and also very engaging as we begin to develop discernment about our consciousness and levels of awareness in the body. The practice is very simple and accessible for all levels of skill. No prior experience required.
Miku is deeply passionate about living in harmony with the self, others and all beings. She truly believes that each one of us contains the seeds of wisdom for the universe and the true purpose of being a teacher is to help guide each person to access the wisdom they already hold within themselves.
An experienced meditation practitioner and circle facilitator, Miku was raised in a mindfulness tradition and has trained with Dr. Eric Carroll at the Center for Vibrant Living for the past 7 years.
