Is the course required or an elective for a Curriculum?
No
This course will build upon material introduced in Yoga I by emphasizing the practice of yoga at an intermediate level. Coursework will require a deeper level of understanding of a variety of yoga postures, breathing techniques, and meditation practices. Yoga philosophy will also be addressed through the study of historical yogic texts such as The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.

1. HESF 279 has been added as a prerequisite to this course because students need this introductory knowledge of yoga (taught in HESF 279) in order to be successful in HESF 280. 


2. The course description has been updated to better reflect the material taught in this course. The course covers more styles of yoga (beyond Hatha yoga) and also places a greater emphasis on yogic philosophy and breathing techniques than what was previously noted in the course description.


3. The credit hours of HESF 280 have been increased from one hour to two hours to allow the course to meet for four contact hours per week. In order to acquire an intermediate level yoga practice, it is necessary to practice more than one day per week and the class session must be longer than 75 minutes at each meeting in order to allow for a complete physical practice, meditation session, and some study of yoga philosophy. Many students also wish to pursue yoga teacher trainings after completing this course, and this increase of meeting time will allow HESF 280 to better prepare these students with the knowledge needed to be successful in a full teacher training program.
