Yoga/Sustainabilty: Theory/Practice

Summer 2013 quarter

Karen Gaul anthropology
Fields of Study
somatic studies and sustainability studies

The yogic sysetm, 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 program explores intersections between yoga and sustainability. The Yoga Sutra of Patanjali and other texts will be examined for key guidelines for sustainable and just living.  We will journey to inner landscapes and outward to our local community and world around us.  We will bring theory to practice through collective service work at local community gardens.  For all bodies; no experience of yoga necessary.
