Yogapedia explains Prakriti Laya

Prakriti is more about the potential aspect than the physical sense. Considered the original form of substances, prakriti consists of three major qualities: sattva, rajas and tamas.

One's prakriti dissolves when one attains a state in which the body is no longer known and has no more rebirths.
