From the experiences of our lives, we make stories about who we are. These manifest in how we hold our body, breathe, think, feel, and move in relationship to other and the environment. These stories have energy and create energy patterns, both healthy and unhealthy. If we can recognize our stories, our patterns, our underlying energies, we can change them. When these change, our lives change. This course gives a concentrated overview of the human condition from ancient yogic and modern psychological perspectives. We review yogic concepts related to understanding the mind, including koshas, kleshas, samskaras, and the gunas. We explore how these concepts fit together with western ideas of mind and how they may be useful in understanding and treating dysfunction. Students will learn Tantra Hatha yoga therapy methods for managing or assisting in healing psychological difficulties, including depression, anxiety, and traumatic stress responses.
