JOURNAL ENTRY = up to FIVE POINTS due by class on Tuesday, September 12th (COMMENTS ARE NOW CLOSED)

Your reading assignment for class next Tuesday (9/12/17) is about the history of yoga and a brief overview of the 8 limbs. I’m in the process of writing a book about the 8 limbs which come from the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. Please read the first 25 pages of the book, which you can download as a PDF by going to Yoga Prayers and entering your information in the bottom right corner. The next day the downloadable PDF will be sent to you. After you’ve read it, please journal anything that comes to mind in this space. Include reflections, questions, observations. From a beginners perspective I’d also like to know if you can make sense of what I’ve written or if it feels too deep and convoluted. It is still in draft format and I’d love your feedback as I develop it further. My goal is to write this book over the next few years, and develop it into an entire yoga philosophy class. Portions of it will also be used in PAW 1005 in upcoming semesters. Thanks in advance!

For Tuesday, 9/12/17, bring to class with you the vocab words handed out on day one so that we can briefly discuss the 8 Limbs from the Yoga Sutras. Journal entries are due the following class, 9/14/17.
