AYW Online Philosophy Course
This course is currently closed to enrollment. Dates for the next course TBA.
This course will follow the development of Yogic thought through the ages with a special emphasis on how it informs Yoga as practice in a modern context. This course will help you contemplate and evaluate your relationship to your practice, and the context and theories from which practice arises. We will be attempting to discover our own biases as well as the cultural and historical biases implicit in Yoga theory. This course is for students interested in a critical review of the history and literature associated with modern yoga practice.
