Ruth Westoby and Dr Matthew Clark will take you back in time to discover the origins of yoga, as well into the present day to explore modern yoga and critical issues in contemporary yoga. A useful course for those wishing to study for their own personal development, for yoga teachers and those studying or planning to study a level 2 with us.
You will study one evening a week, for 4 weeks to recap a historical timeline and go over basic concepts before we then deep dive into the philosophy based topics available on this modular course.
At this level of study, students will get a chance to delve deeper into topics and explore them through texts such as the Upaniṣads, Bhagavad Gītā, Amṛtasiddhi and Patañjali. There will be plenty of opportunity to discuss Yoga Philosophical teachings through a contemporary lens and learn how to incorporate philosophy into your yoga teachings today. After the 4 week recap students can choose as many deep dive topics as they wish to study but will need to dedicate a minimum of 20 hours to receive a certificate.
Deep dives will be held monthly on a Saturday morning 9-12pm throughout the year and will cost £40.
