The Yoga of the Hathapradipika
This course introduces yoga as presented in the Haṭhapradīpikā – an influential 15th century text. Haṭhapradīpikā is one of the most popular and influential works on yoga. It presents a range of practices derived from previous traditions, providing students with a traditional and well-rounded level of knowledge of ancient yogic practice.
In this course, we will examine both the philosophical and practical aspects of yoga as described in the Haṭhapradīpikā. We will learn key concepts such as āsana, prāṇāyāma, and samādhi, and will gain a broad overview of the traditions and texts behind the Haṭhapradīpikā.
Our Hatha Yoga Pradipika course will explore the significance of some of the most important and influential aspects of yoga. This course will also dive into the philosophical and theoretical foundations of Hatha Yoga practices, as well as learning about teachers throughout history and the progression of traditional methods and beliefs, and how they have influenced modern yoga practice.
