This course provides in-depth experience of holistic yoga, that integrates asana, pranayama, and meditation techniques for a sustained yoga practice.
In this course, we will dive into the practices of yoga, such as asana (postures) and pranayama (breathing practices), along with their concepts — through the lens of Patanjali Yoga Sutras.
The integrated approach to yoga is more than just a physical practice. It is a philosophy-based approach to viewing oneself and the rest of the world with a paradigm-shift. Holistic Ashtanga Yoga is an eight-limbed approach to yoga that synthesizes the traditional knowledge of yogic and vedantic texts, such as Patanjali Yoga Sutras, Hatha Yoga Pradipika, Bhagavad Gita, and other yogic and upanishadic texts, as a rich and comprehensive set of practices. In this course, we will experience the practices of yoga as a hands on experience while also understanding some of the concepts behind these practices.
In this course students will be able to:
- Learn in depth, the yoga practices of breath synchronized movements, asana, pranayama, and meditation along with their nuances.
