Yoga Practice/Philosophy

Principles in Practice: Movement and Philosophies of Yoga
In this course we will explore the philosophy and physical practice of Yoga. Through a daily asana practice, lectures, readings, written assignments, and class discussions, we will invite a cohesive exploration and analysis of the art of yoga in relation to mental and physical activity. Readings will include works by Indian authors T.K.V. Desikachar and B.K.S. Iyengar as well as western authors Cindy Lee and Stephen Cope in order to study the westernization of yoga and compare the history of yoga with its contemporary practice. (Approval required)

Move2Change: Perform Activism

Move2Change: Social Activism and Performance
In this course we will examine the intersection between social activism and performance. This entry-level course will cover a brief history of performance art and the dynamic power of activism but will focus primarily on the collaborative creation of performance infused with a social conscience. Content will be drawn from fields ranging from political science to women and gender studies to civil rights. Looking at art making through the eyes of pivotal historical figures in addition to contemporary artists, we will gather techniques to develop solo and group performances. Readings, films, journal writing, and studio research will be an integral part of this highly experiential class. This course counts as elective credit towards the Dance major.
