DAN 116 - Yoga (4)

Combines a hybrid focus on experiential anatomy useful for dance and somatic knowledge of the body with a slow flow of hatha and vinyasa yoga. Students should expect to learn through practice how yoga asanas and vinyasa are articulated with the breath and with specific alignment. The class will address yogic philosophy and safe practice such as how to heal injuries and practice dance. The course will combine physical, somatic practice with discussions about required readings on anatomy, yogic practices and philosophy. Students will think about their bodies and practices in new ways in reference to in-class reading that addresses the history of yoga, debates about yoga, and cultural context. Fall and Spring.
