MINORS

Yoga for Wellness


This 12-credit minor Yoga for Wellness is a comprehensive program drawing from yoga's vast and ancient teachings. The minor consists of the following yoga history, theory, and philosophy as well as yoga and lifestyle: developing a regular personal practice and lifestyle based around healthy and thoughtful living; yoga in action: providing a deeper understanding of yoga within a larger sphere of social engagement; and yoga therapy: how to bring yoga, mindfulness, and meditation techniques into therapeutic settings. All courses will balance experiential learning with history and philosophy. Students will have ample opportunity to develop strategies for how to apply skills gained in these courses to their chosen professions.
