1- Yoga context, history and timelines

Here we’ll discuss the region and historical culture from which we see the beginnings of yogic philosophy. We’ll also map out the chronology of scriptures that are informing the        practice today.

2- non-dualism and the Upanishads

We’ll dive into the roots of the yoga tradition through our study of some key Upanishads and their mahavakyas (or great statements.)
