Yoga IS an ancient and beautiful “lifestyle medicine”. In fact, yoga therapy draws upon the holistic Pancha Maya Kosha Model. Translated as the 5 layers or sheathes of our being.
This simple framework is a practical, personal and transformative map for us to develop and experience balance, wellbeing and overall health.
The five layers are: body, breath, mind, lifestyle wisdom and deep joy.
Daily practice is at the heart of a yoga therapy practice. This is because it is through our daily practice that we “clean” these layers and receive our daily dose of “lifestyle medicine” necessary for optimal health and peace of mind.
