Yoga has become a commonplace practice around the world taking on countless forms. Even though traditionally a spiritual practice, yoga’s various tools can be used to promote physical and mental health and well-being. Its spiritual benefits aside, there is no doubt of the benefits yoga offers the body and the mind. Using the wisdom from classic texts such as Yoga Sutras and Bhagavad-gita we discuss the main concepts of yoga and how to utilize them in daily life. Through this process, students will uncover obstacles that may be limiting their progress toward achieving the ultimate goal of yoga.
This course is made of six weeks, or units, of teaching and unlimited time to prepare for and take the quizzes pertaining to weekly topics.
By the end of the course, the students will demonstrate an ability to present an overview of the six topics and their sub-themes. They will also be able to understand and explain the central philosophical ideas, and the central practices that are connected to these ideas.
All the assessment is done online at a time convenient for the student.
How To Study Online
This is a self-study course with no scheduled starting and ending date. It is made of 6 weeks/units of course materials.
Upon registering for the course, students get access to all six weeks/units of course materials. All the lectures are pre-recorded and put on our learning platform along with other learning materials. There are no live lectures so students don’t need to be present online at a specific time but can watch the videos and study at their convenience.
A convenient feature of the lectures is that they are cut into small units dealing with one specific topic. So, whenever there is some free time, a student can use it to go through the topic, then continue with other activities and think about what has been said. This system is very practical for those who have busy lifestyles but it is also proving to be helpful for just anyone, helping to better focus on the most important points from the lectures.
Yoga Philosophy course can be attended without any prerequisites.
