2573 - Yoga and Meditation for Better Physical and Mental Health
Yoga is more than improving your body's flexibility. It means union with the energy inside us that pervades our mind and body and the entire Universe. This course is based on Patanjali's teachings dated 2,000 years ago. Brief lectures and discussion will review underlying biomedical research and eight steps to achieve yogic experience. Practice will teach the student to meditate on the inner energy - the soul, if you will. The benefits are better mental focus, improved physical health and sleep, as well as peace and tranquility. Although these techniques were developed in ancient India by Hindus, they are universal and have been adopted by Buddhists, Muslims, Christians and Jews. The techniques can be practiced while sitting on a chair or on the floor, often aided by a Yoga block. This is not a course on Yoga positions and is suitable for students with little or no practice of assuming Yoga positions. Lecture (plus questions), Facilitated Discussion, Exercise or Dance, Hands-On Activity (e.g., computer, art)
