Intro to Yoga Philosophy
- 78 US dollars$78
The Western narrative about Yoga must be re-written if we are to maintain the authenticity of the Yoga tradition. In this course we will examine Yoga's history to understand the evolution of yogic thought and practice over 5000 years. The foundation of yoga's philosophy can be found in the Sankhya model. We will explore this fascinating model of the universe, and discover how our modern practices are linked to its metaphysics. In doing so we will also discover the Koshas, Shariras, and the Gunas -- all models to help us better understand the qualities of Nature, including both matter and energy. If you've wondered how we can make the leap from practicing postures to spiritual awakening, this class is for you! Our studies will include both lecture and a guided practice.
