Pranamaya Kosha: Energy Body

The Koshas: From Gross to Causal

We are multidimensional beings, with consciousness at our core. Our pranamaya kosha (energy sheath) is the energetic force (prana) that rests between our body and mind, animating, supporting, and nurturing us and giving us life. Join Sandra Anderson to discover how yogic tools allow us to work with this pranic body by working with the breath, helping us expand our awareness of our mental and physical layers and improve our overall health and wellbeing.
