Layers of Being Course Banner

Who are you, truly?

What the yogis have taught over the centuries is that you’re many things at once. In fact, many layers at once.

In the Taittiriya Upanishad (a text that is part of one of the oldest scriptures in the world) the pancha kosha model is explained: There are five sheaths, covering our spiritual core/our soul: physical, energetic, mental (thoughts), knowledge, and bliss. By working through these layers, we learn to distinguish action from reaction, short- from longterm pleasure, and the desires of the soul from desires of the ego.

What is Yin Yoga?

Through the practice of Yin Yoga we will explore one layer per week, moving from the outside in. Yin Yoga is a simple practice for everybody and every body. A time to slow down, tune in, and let go of the busyness of life. In Yin Yoga, floor-based postures are held in stillness for a couple of minutes at a time, creating a slight discomfort for body and mind. Once we soften into this discomfort, we are able to access and release deep-seated tension within. Every class contains asana (postures), pranayama (breathwork), and a short meditation to end with.

No previous yoga experience is necessary. Just come as you are.

Join the five-week course for only $75 or drop into single classes for $20. This course is part of a regular Yin Yoga class that I teach every Tuesday evening at Studio Tula. Therefore, you can use my usual class passes, too.

Saskia’s yin classes are the closest to Authentic Ayurvedic Yoga that I’ve come across in Ōtepoti. Her grace with words, guidance and connection with the practice is amazing. I walk away feeling grounded, connected and much more at peace with myself than when I first enter, what a gift! I can’t recommend these classes enough.
