We pick up the history of yoga with the development of Hatha Yoga in 1000 a.d., and follow its development, decline and revival through the Muslim conquests, the British Raj, the Indian Renaissance, and its ultimate transmission to the West. We will compare hatha yoga then and now, consider the western changes to the practices and goals of hatha yoga, and explore what a hybrid path might look like that straddles both the old and new in the development of an authentic yoga in the 21st century. Practice sessions will be interspersed with lecture and discussion sessions. Practices will introduce and include pranayama, khumbaks, the bandhas and incorporate these into the asana practices where appropriate. Those already familiar with the practices will be encouraged to move and practice at a depth that supports them, while those new to the practices will be led in a guided and structured experience.
