PHED 112 - Yoga for Wellness III

(1 credit)
Yoga can be practiced as wellness for body and mind. Although there are traditionally considered to be eight “limbs of yoga,’ in this course we will focus two limbs of yoga: “Asana” known as hatha yoga and “Meditation.” These limbs of yoga focus on the postures used in yogic practice, which includes breathing practices, hatha yoga, relaxation, and meditation. Topics to be covered include the aforementioned techniques as well as discussion of the basics of the health benefits of yoga and meditation. This class will mainly study twists, though we will utilize the full range of hatha yoga poses during the course of the semester.
