Comparative Philosophy 30 h with Guy Powiecki: Höst 2020

This Course will include an understanding of philosophy from a broad comparative approach. Initially looking at source material from different philosophical systems, including for example European and classical Greek philosophers as well as the Eastern systems. The material is chosen for it’s relevance to self inquiry and the nature of existence.

The focus then moves to Indian Philosophy, giving a brief overview of the 6 major schools, paying particular attention to Samkhya, Yoga Sutras, Advaita Vedanta. It’s impossible to discuss philosophy without includinging an introduction to Buddhism, this will be a large component of the course.

The relationship between Buddhism, Yoga and Indian thought in general will be explored. All of this will be set in a socio-historical context, examining the evolution and interdependence over time. What relevance and relationship do they all have to what we are doing in yoga today and to our own lives? This is maybe the most important question of the whole course and students will be made to think about this in their own way.

We will also bring in psychology looking at both buddhist and yogic understandings of the mind, meditation and their continued importance in todays modern society.

The course will be held in English.

Det finns bara en yoga. I augusti lanserar vi våra egna Yogayama klasser, som är utvecklade och framtagna av Yogayamas internationella yogateam.

Vi har inte skapat en ny typ eller stil av yoga, utan en sekvenserad klass som är utformad för att eleverna ska få en djupare upplevelse av yogans helhet. Det ger eleverna möjlighet att växa inte bara i sin fysiska träning utan också att utvecklas mentalt genom pranayama och meditation.

Yogayama är Skandinaviens största yogaskola. Vår målsättning är att skapa en plats för individuell utveckling som inspirerar, stärker och berör. Här ger vi dig utrymme att växa och utvecklas. Vi har ett brett och noga utvalt utbud av klasser, yogalärarutbildningar, workshops, kurser och events. Vi ser fram emot att ta hand om dig på din yogaresa! Mer info kommer i augusti.

Yogaklasserna finns from augusti på Yogayama Östermalm. I våra studios i Norrköping, Göteborg och Sjöstaden kommer klasserna lanseras i början av 2019.
