Course Description

IN PERSON: This active learning course on yoga’s ancient philosophy sheds light on the struggles of modern living. Discover how a dedicated yoga practice can transform the mind-body connection to bring ease to the body, calm to the mind, a more positive outlook and deeper self-awareness. Each week we focus on a different yoga practice from Patanjali's eight limbs and Vedanta philosophy. These include: posture (asana), gesture (mudra), breath (pranayama), sense withdrawal (pratyahara), focus (dharana), meditation (dhyana) and yoga nidra (samadhi). Students will experience how the practices cultivate a compassionate connection between the body, mind and emotions. Each class will combine lecture, handout, homework, audio meditations and practice time. | Lecture + Q&A, Active Skill Learning.
