In these Foundations of Yoga: Posture and Philosophy classes, students will learn fundamental components of efficient postural and energetic alignment and movement in body, mind, and spirit. Philosophy, psychology, and physiology will all be considered.
Foundations of Posture
Sun and Moon sequences, standing postures, twists and variations will be offered in addition to restorative yoga for relaxation. Students will learn the foundations of classical postures through practice, demonstration, and discussion.
Foundations of Philosophy
The Foundations of Yoga Philosophy will be woven through these classes. The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali are the foundational philosophy of Samkhya Yoga. Each week students will be offered a sutra for their consideration. When applicable, Sanskrit terms will be translated and discussed to provide deeper layers of understanding of Patanjali’s words. Discussion and practices will be based upon modern day application of this philosophy to our daily lives. Journaling is encouraged.
