Activate the 5 Dimensions of the Self and Awaken Your Heart to Deeper Love, Bliss & Wisdom

Experience the Power of Heart-centered Yogic Wisdom and Practice & Awaken Your Highest Potential Through Yoga’s Holistic Path for Body and Mind


Humankind has been to the peaks of the highest mountains, the depths of the oceans and into outer space...

Yet it’s still a great challenge for us to calm our minds and know the depths of our own hearts.

Both spiritual traditions and modern science recognize the power and importance of the human heart, yet it remains among the greatest of mysteries.

According to yogic wisdom and practice, the human heart holds the key to awakening greater, more expanded levels of energy, accessing our deeper soul wisdom and experiencing inner peace.

Yoga is often taught as mainly a physical practice in the West with the main importance on bodily postures, strength and flexibility. Like a branch is part of a tree, the physical aspect of yoga, or asana, is one branch of the great tree of yoga.

Though well over 5,000 years old, yoga has incredible relevance today. It’s practiced all around the world by people from all walks of life and is a major force in shaping the emerging consciousness on the planet.

The true, deeper yoga is a path for body, mind and soul. It transcends differences and speaks to the heart each of us. Yoga is the technology of awakening the heart, the space of pure consciousness within us, the space where all polarities dissolve and we experience our connection to source and the unity of all things.

The 5 Energy Layers of Your Being


Sacred yogic traditions have long worked with the 5 subtle energy layers orkoshas... and the heart as the center of being, wisdom and energy.

Your yoga practice can help bring awareness, expression and healing to these five layers of your being — giving you direct access your authentic Self, powers of intention (Sankalpa), more love and greater compassion.

World-renowned teacher Saul David Raye draws on the depth of the Yoga tradition, Bhakti, Tantra and universal light. Through his heart-centered, holistic teachings, you can awaken to the subtle energy layers of your being, navigate your soul’s journey more skillfully and engage in daily life with more ease and purpose.

He’ll share teachings that will affect how you experience yoga and give you tools and support to embrace your own authentic yoga and path. He’ll reveal the profound, universal wisdom at the heart of Yoga.

Annamaya kosha is your first layer and translated, means, “made of physical matter.” This first layer is your physical body, including bodily functions and all physical aspects of your being. When you are stuck in this layer, it’s easy to forget you are MORE than your body...


Pranamaya kosha is your second layer or your “Prana” layer, the life force that vitalizes and holds together your body and mind. It permeates your entire being and governs your biological processes. Without it, your body would cease to function.

Manomaya kosha, or your “body made of thought processes,” is your third layer and encompasses your nervous system and brain. It receives input from your five senses and responds, shaping your experiences by the stimuli you receive. If you receive too much sensory input (negative or positive) you can experience energetic blocks or overwhelm your system.

Vijnanamaya kosha is your fourth layer, translated as “the power of judgment or discernment,” is your layer of intellect which discriminates, determines and wills. This layer distinguishes humans from animals. Regular meditation and focus on your yogic path, strengthen and balance your clarity, intuition and connection to inner guidance.

Anandamaya kosha is your fifth layer and is your subtle energy body of truth, beauty, and spiritual bliss. This innermost layer is extremely important in yoga because it’s where spirituality and matter meet. It’s the final and thinnest veil between your general awareness and connection to your higher Self.


The Practice of Living From Your Heart

Saul’s teachings provide a framework for understanding what yoga is (and isn’t!) and how it works. “Vichara” is the Sanskrit word for inquiry and according to the ancient yogis, the act of doing yoga is the most profound form of self-inquiry... inquiry into the true nature of being.

In this powerful all-new training, Saul will guide you into some of the most essential yogic teachings and give you daily practices and techniques to support you in awaken your heart and deepening your connection to the rhythms and cycles of the Earth and Universe.

In this comprehensive, 7-module training with Saul David Raye, you’ll discover:

  • Yoga’s sacred map of the Self (Being)
  • The 5 layers (koshas) of the soul — and how to access them and experience your radiant heart
  • The power of Sankalpa (intention) and how to use it for positive change
  • 3 essential yogic teachings: Dhri = Dharma (Universal Truth), Kri = Karma (Action) = Soul Force, Ritam (Cosmic Rhythm, Evolution)
  • The Power of OM for individual and global healing
  • The quantum power of the spiritual heart (Hridaya) at the center of your being
  • A guided Yoga Nidra session — a deep yogic relaxation practice to release stress and anxiety and connect all layers of your being
  • Practices to awaken your energetic heart for greater health, energy and peace
  • The core yoga philosophy, Pancha Maha Bhoutas (5 great elements)
  • The Cosmic Pulse known as Ritam and how everything is connected through rhythm
  • Your own practice of meditation and prayer using mantra, heart-centered techniques and other practices

The little space within the heart is as great as the vast universe.
The heavens and the earth are there, and the sun and the moon and the stars. Fire and lightening and winds are there, and all that now is and all that is not.
Prabhavananda, The Upanishads: Breath from the Eternal

Living from the heart is a practice. This course will offer support, inspiration and practices that will deeply affect your yoga practice. Join master teacher Saul David Raye for this journey into essential and illuminating yogic teachings on the heart.

Since ancient times, great masters and sacred traditions have spoken of the power of the human heart, as the center of our being and the seat of greater wisdom and energy.

What People Are Saying About Saul David Raye...

Come and experience a teacher who embodies, lives and transmits the sacredness of yoga with an abiding peace, a heartfelt devotion, a sincere intention, and the utmost integrity.

His teachings awaken your spirit, ground you in truth, and raise your vibration. My heart is filled with so much gratitude for Saul, who is not only a beautiful being, but an absolute blessing!
— Danielle Tridenti

I came to this training after several years of living inside the box; good college, MBA, investment bank, material trappings, and not much happiness... I immediately felt I was home. The training is nonlinear, exactly outside the box, yet incredibly safe. It is a much deeper, more soulful training where philosophy, energy and service are honored as much as asana and alignment. Also, as important, it is fun and Saul understands we live on earth and need to stay grounded here, even as we take off into the infinite. I have been so touched deep in my heart.
— Brian Gallo

I discovered my true sense of inner ritam (rhythm) and joy during my time in Saul David Raye’s [program]. Each module was a unique adventure flowing with practical information, music, movement, stillness, community, love and guidance... Through this transformation I’ve been introduced to a deeper, more authentic version of myself as an individual and teacher.
— Deborah Steingesser

Coming from a highly physical/asana based yoga practiced, Saul’s [training] opened my eyes and heart to the spiritual value of yoga and it truly changed my life. I now have the ability to take my practice to the next level, both spiritually and physically.
— Justin Williams

Saul’s wisdom and connection to the ancient lineages is infused on a cellular level into my being. Like a true Master, Saul provides the space for my own voice to come through and has taught me how to teach yoga from a place of wholeness, authenticity and grace.
— Andrea Bernstein

This isn’t just a training, stuffing you full of information; it’s an immersion, where you are encouraged to let go into the teachings and be supported as the deeper yoga creates a transformation. Saul and his assistants created a true Sangha in which we each started to find our own voice.
— Doug Binzak

I have been practicing and teaching yoga for more than 30 years and hadn’t encountered a teacher who embodies the teachings in this way until I met Saul. His devoted bhakti heart called to me straight away and I have nothing but pure and overflowing gratitude for his generous and compassionate way, inviting the feminine/masculine sun/moon balance back into our bodies and into the world. I feel the pulsing of true liberation in my own heart being and would recommend his trainings or workshops to anyone who longs intensely for union of our human self with the Divine Self... and living in a state of Grace.
— Amy Barnes

Saul has a great gift to hold the space for students to make their own discoveries, both on a physical, emotional and spiritual level.
