This exciting course will introduce students to the 2,500 year history of Yoga practice in India, where the term ‘Yoga’ has been used to refer to a variety of psych-physical spiritual practices such as breath control, meditation, visualization, mantra engagement, bodily postures, and more.  We will examine these practices in their philosophical and cultural contexts. This will be the first Yoga-based course to reveal the development of modern ‘Hatha Yoga’ from its roots in the medieval Tantric traditions.
