Yoga 11

Course Outline

Yoga 11 will introduce students to the tradition of Yoga with its various forms and styles. The intention is that students will develop a lifelong personal practice of yoga to maintain vibrant health and develop healthy relationships with self and others while enjoying it as a regular form of physical and leisure activity.

Students will be participating in various activities that will include physical practice, personal reflection, group discussion, and classroom theory.

The physical aspect of yoga will include the acquisition and development of skills including strength, flexibility, cardiovascular endurance, balance, regulation of energy through breathing, and mental focus. All of these skills are of great benefit to overall health and to other physical pursuits.

The course is divided into three modules: Proper Breathing and Asana Practice; The Origins and Philosophy of Yoga, and Integrating a Mindful Practice.
