Yoga Practice/Philosophy

Principles in Practice: Movement and Philosophies of Yoga
In this course we will explore the philosophy and physical practice of Yoga. Through a daily asana practice, lectures, readings, written assignments, and class discussions, we will invite a cohesive exploration and analysis of the art of yoga in relation to mental and physical activity. Readings will include works by Indian authors T.K.V. Desikachar and B.K.S. Iyengar as well as western authors Cindy Lee and Stephen Cope in order to study the westernization of yoga and compare the history of yoga with its contemporary practice. (Approval required)
