Yoga Studies

The Yoga Studies area presents a collection of courses that represent an interdisciplinary approach to the study of Yoga in its full range of ideas, practices, values, and benefits.  Through its programs and courses, this area of study explores the theoretical foundation and Philosophy of Yoga through its principal texts, the practice of Yoga and its immediate value in fostering physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health and wellbeing, its healing and therapeutic potential in addressing various chronic diseases and ailments, and ultimately, its transformative possibility leading to a creative, intellectual and spiritual encounter between the individual, the world and the divine. Through structured learning sessions that include both distance education as well as intensives that bring students together into a weekend or week-long retreats, Yoga Studies covers traditional categories of Jnana Yoga, Raja Yoga, Karma Yoga, and Bhakti Yoga and their most common forms of practice. It offers learning pathways for students who wish to learn Yoga as a beginner, integrates it into their lifestyle and enhances their quality of life, prepares themselves as teachers who can help and facilitate others in embracing Yoga, develop themselves as practitioners of Yoga based therapies or scholars and researchers into the field of Yoga. It addresses several dimensions of Yoga such as self-inquiry, study, meditation, mindfulness, self-control, personal discipline and practice, physiology and psychology, self-development and actualization, responsible social engagement, and exploration of devotional expression, music, literature, the visual and performing arts. Hindu University of America encourages students to see Yoga as enabling a disciplined, self-reflective and committed life, that seeks to bring Vedic Hindu wisdom in service of healing and transformation to a world in need.
