DANC 170 - Spanda Yoga and Movement Fundamentals

This course is designed to introduce dance students to Spanda yoga as a lifelong holistic health practice and fitness training to complement dance training.   Drawing from the Hatha yoga and Ashtanga traditions, students will learn: asanas (postures), pranayama (breathing practices), sanskirt terminology (vocabulary), vinyasa (flowing sequences), and spiritual traditions (meditation) of yoga. Readings, journal reflections, research and written assignments will be required.
