Mother Nurture Northumberland

Five Bodies

This model of what it is to be human comes from the Taittiriya Upanisad, and is a helpful way to understand what a 'nourishing' yoga practice might look like and what a holistic balanced lifestyle might include. To feel healthy and well we must take care of our nourishment at all of these levels. As Mums we are also responsible for nourishing our children at all of these levels and helping them learn over time to nourish themselves.
