Students explore the historical and philosophical roots of the yogic tradition through a sampling of Vedic texts such as The Upanishads and The Bhagavad Gita and the evolution of yogic principals from The Yoga Sutras to their modern Western permutations. Class is driven by student discussion and monthly writing assignments which are later compiled into a portfolio along with a statement of the of the student’s yoga philosophy.
Please note this is the philosophy section of our annual Teacher Training Program led by Ryan Bachtel but is being offered independently from the rest of the program. (Ask about credit toward a future Teacher Training Program at OLY.)
This course spans 10 months.
