You begin working with the first three bodies as soon as you start practicing yoga.
#Coordinating your breath with your movement brings you present on your mat—synchronizing your physical, energetic, and mental bodies. However, the next layer, your wisdom body, takes a little more internal #awareness that is cultivated over time.
Beneath the constant stream of thoughts, feelings, and sensations (the processing, thinking, and reactive mind), lies an inner knowing and higher intelligence in your wisdom body, which is called the #vijnanamaya #kosha, from vijnana, or “intellect.” Your #intuition, #conscience, and the reflective aspects of your consciousness are all part of your #wisdom body. Here, we develop our awareness and deeper insight into the nature of who we are and how we relate to the world around us.
The #practice of #yoga helps quiet the mental body so that our wisdom body can be heard and begin to guide us. One simple way to start working with your vijnanamaya kosha is to simply pay attention to any sensations or pulsations taking place internally throughout your practice.
For example, after a Bridge Pose or backbend, once you’re back down on your mat, close your eyes, feel the sensations taking place on the inside, and become aware of your heartbeat.
