This module will center on the modern classic text, Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahansa Yogananda. Do you ever wish you understood more about the history of yoga, where it came from, how it has evolved over time, and how the history of yoga relates to the modern flourishing of yoga asana practice in the west? Expect to answer all of these questions and many more in this intriguing investigation into the history and culture of yoga from ancient past to modern day. Also as a part of this weekend, we’ll explore questions about spirituality and yoga, learn more about pranayama techniques, and practice yoga asana from various lineages so you might feel the differences in your body.
