Course Overview

This course is an introduction to the philosophy - or rather the philosophies - of Yoga. Yoga, in its traditional sense, is not just a series of physical exercises and poses, but a comprehensive system of what we call "liberation technology." This course will cover elements of theory and practice that are relevant to the system of Yoga as well as the history of Yoga, the historical developments that have shaped it, and the different branches and types of Yoga that have existed through time. Participants are encouraged to engage with the material and form their own conclusions. The course will include discussion and conversation on topics covered. It will also include a practical component where we will experiment with basic meditation techniques and take time for personal reflection.
