The word “yoga” has a long and storied history as it moves
through the original sources in Sanskrit and other south Asian
languages. From its first appearance in the ancient Rg Veda,
“yoga” is used in diverse and complex ways to describe concepts,
values, practices, and traditions of interpretation. We’re
going to start from the beginning and create a basic “canon” of the
yoga tradition, not only listing and describing the sources of yoga
but comparing interpretations and sources to other sources.
We need to bring the complexity and diversity of traditions into focus and present a picture of history and context that takes us from Rg Veda to the Tantras and into modernity. This work is not only foundational to any student of yoga but deeply revealing of the continued relevance of yoga as it morphs and evolves into our own experiences. No previous experience is expected or required. Bring an open mind and a willing heart.
