LET’S TALK ABOUT IT: OVERVIEW OF HISTORY AND PHILOSOPHY OF YOGA:
Feeling Fuzzy about the details of all that Yoga entails? In this session, we will identify and clarify the main systems, leaders, and texts in the History and Philosophy of Yoga. Students will leave this session with a clear introductory understanding of what’s what between The Vedas, The Yoga Sutras of Pantanjali, The Bhagavad Gita, The Upanishads, and The Hatha Yoga Pradipika.
ACCESSIBLE ASHTANGA: (PRIMARY SERIES)
The Ashtanga Yoga System is the basis for most types of popular yoga taught today. Practicing in the tradition of the Ashtanga Yoga System will help you to detoxify muscles and organs, improve circulation, and create a calm, steady mind.
