EMBODIED WISDOM: An Introduction to the Philosophy of Yoga

The vast wealth of India’s spiritual wisdom arises out of the inspirational texts and teachings of its most ancient traditions. In this class, we will explore the foundations of Indian spirituality in the Vedas, Upanishads, Yoga Sutras, and the Bhagavad Gita. The weekend will culminate with an introduction to the powerfully transformational worldview of tantra. Clear descriptions of key teachings will be offered, along with contemplative explorations of how we can draw on this ancient wisdom to meet the challenges of contemporary life. Each set of teachings will be engaged both on and off the mat, with periods of asana practice designed to complement our philosophical study.
