Description

Course Description:

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 the concepts behind these practices.

Learning Outcome:

In this course students will be able to:

  • Learn in-depth, the yoga practices of breath-synchronized movements, asana, pranayama, and meditation.
  • Understand the concepts of Ashtanga Yoga as applicable to asanas, pranayama, cleansing Kriyas, meditation, and relaxation
  • Apply yoga practices and concepts to manage their physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health.
  • Understand the eight limbs of Ashtanga Yoga — yama, niyama, asana, pranayama, pratyahara, dharana, dhyana, and Samadhi.
