Yoga means union with the divinity within us, which is a incredible physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual journey. The Philosophy of Yoga gives us the mental preparation for that journey. Of the six classical schools of Indian Philosophy, the class will address the synthesis of the Sankhya and Yoga schools. You will learn the meaning of such Yogic concepts as a) the ancient enlightened Seers of the Vedas; b) the relation of consciousness to matter; c) liberation from bondage; d) the infinite absolute as Sat-Chit-Ananda; e) the Law of Karma; f) the doctrine of Maya; g) the nature of Self and Soul; h) meditations and mantras; i) the Yoga theory of creation; j) the doctrine of rebirth; and k) the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali describing the eightfold path of Yoga.
