ANT 3140 - Yoga and Ayurveda: Science & Culture

Credit(s): 3

Yoga is one of the oldest healing practices on Earth. It has been practiced in India for thousands of years. Yoga reduces stress and anxiety, enhances flexibility and strengthens the body. Yoga teaches us how physical postures, breathwork and meditations reduce suffering of an ungrounded mind. Yoga’s sister science and India’s traditional medical system, Ayurveda, is defined as “the science of life” where the balance of wind, fire and water is crucial to health. Students will learn how diet, lifestyle and environmental influences affect our individual constitutions (the Doshas: Vata, Pitta or Kapha) and how to achieve optimum health.
