Yoga Philosophy Course (20hrs) with Ruth Westoby

During this 20 hour philosophy programme, Ruth integrates the history and philosophy of yoga with a keen appreciation of the questions and concerns of curious yoga students and working yoga teachers. Ruth will offer five history and philosophy sessions and one practical workshop focused on weaving these ideas into sitting and moving practices.

Yoga Philosophy and Practice Intertwined with Ruth Westoby

In this three-hour workshop Ruth will weave together philosophy, mythology, history and practice. The session will begin with outlining the key doctrines of yoga philosophy and share mythological maps which can add depth to our practice. Ruth will use sitting and moving practices to explore not only philosophy and mythology but to give a sense of the historical development of practices over the last 2000 years. We will conclude the session by reviewing the integration of history and philosophy into practical sessions and have plenty of opportunity for discussion. Yoga has the potential to become embodied philosophy, illuminating and expressing ourselves and resonating throughout our lives.

Strengthening your core is much more than getting a flat tummy or 6-pack abs, it is about creating stability throughout the whole […]
