LST 301 - Yoga: Theory, Culture & Practice

The transcultural practice of Modern Postural Yoga is influenced both by a longstanding practice history in India and modern gymnastic techniques. This interdisciplinary course examines yoga philosophy and practice through the fields of anthropology, religious studies, psychology and health. Students will examine yoga as a cultural construct, a health and wellness practice and a meaning-making discipline that is used for secular, philosophical and religious means.
