43. YOGA FOR THE THIRD STAGE OF LIFE
In Sri Ramaswami's Yoga for the Three Stages of Life, he states that when one is young practicing yoga āsanas as an art and exercise is appropriate. However, as one gets older, one seeks to maintain reasonable mobility using a more modest āsana practice and puts more focus on Yoga breathing practices (prāṇāyāma), meditation, and the study of Yoga philosophy. This course will follow that approach: modest āsana practice, prāṇāyāma practice, and meditation. Interspersed among these practices will be discussions about the history and philosophy of Yoga based on selections from the Yoga Sutras and Bhagavad Gita. It is designed so that by the last session, you will have developed a Yoga practice that you can use or add to your daily practice. The course is appropriate for beginners as well as experienced Yoga enthusiasts. The poses used will be standing poses (most of which can also be done sitting), so you will not need a yoga mat. Please wear comfortable clothing and bring a bottle of water. Jim Maxwell is a Registered Yoga Teacher (300+ hrs) and a Licensed Professional Counselor. Limit 25.
