The yogic system, emerging through a complex history over several millenia, is extremely relevant in today’s world.  As a "science of the mind," yogic inquiry offers concrete ways to closely examine habits of behavior and thought.  Through theory and practice, this class explores intersections between yoga and sustainability. The Yoga Sutraof Patanjali and other texts will be examined for key guidelines for sustainable and just living.  We will journey to inner landscapes and prepare ourselves to move outward into our local communities and world around us.  For all bodies; no experience of yoga necessary.
