A Practical Guide to Yoga Philosophy

Yoga is the art and science of transformation. It’s a rich and colorful tradition that will likely surprise you, will warm your heart, and inspire you. It’s impossible to discuss Yoga philosophy without touching on history as well. This course illuminates Yoga philosophy using a chronology and a straightforward approach. It’s not meant for scholars but rather for students and teachers of Hatha Yoga. A Practical Guide to Yoga Philosophy will make even richer and productive your physical posture practice and seated meditation practice. It will challenge you to think beyond oversimplifications of Yoga and definitely beyond dogma.

More than anything Yoga is a practice that is evolving for each of us in our own way. Mandy has avoided evangelizing or dogma and stuck to the latest research and reputable sources to provide you with knowledge that you can make your own and use in the way that is the most transformative to you.
