Annamaya Kosha: Food Body

The Koshas: From Gross to Causal

In this talk, Sandra Anderson describes the annamaya kosha, the physical or “food” body from the yogic perspective. Tune in and hear how our basic daily routines and activities (including asana, diet, and sleep) can help us align with our higher intelligence while living in harmony with the world.
