In The Yoga Mind, you will trace the history and evolution of yoga from the pre-classical through to the contemporary. You will "return to the source" with the study of traditional texts, the Upanishads, the Bhagavad Gita, and the Yoga Sutras, and identify important insights in the flow of ideas that make up the story of yoga. With these reference points and others, you will discuss the different ways in which yogis have contemplated the nature of existence throughout the millennia. In studying the origins of Tantra and Hatha yoga, students will be introduced to the principles of Prana and the subtle energy body. A survey of modern yoga will highlight some of the key figures in its rise in popularity over the past century and help put into context the current myriad of interpretations of this ancient form. During The Yoga Mind, the daily asana, pranayama, and meditation sessions will provide you with a rich and meaningful way to put theory into practice. As a consequence of the journey through The Yoga Mind, students will have new reference points for their own practice and a better understanding of how it fits within the larger tradition of yoga. They will discover new ideas, deepen their understanding of the philosophical underpinnings of the form, and find fresh inspiration for the evolution of their own yoga. Participants in The Yoga Mind will earn 50 hours towards their 200hr Yoga Teacher Training certificate with RTTSYS.
