Saturday 7/27: History of Yoga
Information presented is from an academic lens that traces yoga’s historical progression from classical religious texts such as the Rigveda and Upaniṣads to the Yoga Sūtras of Patañjali. Then, there will be a survey of its tantric influences dating from the 11th century, followed by the 20th century’s invention of yoga-asana (postural yoga), which dissects the genealogy of contemporary yoga practice.
Saturday 9/28: Yoga Anatomy (1)
Will focus on commonly used muscles and bones in postural yoga as well as focus on areas of injuries during practice. This course is geared for not only a general understanding of the physiological body but to develop an understanding to prevent injury while building strength.
Sunday 9/29: Yoga Anatomy (2)
Will focus on “subtle” systems of the body. This component will be informed by Chinese medicine, Ayurveda, and Tibetan Medicine.
The tools from these medical systems will help students understand other possible ways how the body functions, which will broaden their periphery to pain and injury.
