MATH 14
Flow Yoga Winter 2022

Class Details

This class will teach the practice of yoga based on a fusion of Ashtanga, Vinyasa and Iyengar methodologies. This course is open to all levels from those who have never done a pose to those who have practicing yoga for years. The students will learn how to connect movement to breath in a sequence of vigorous yoga poses, or asanas. The flow classes will introduce yoga sequences in an alignment-based curriculum appropriate to each student’s experience. In addition to the physical work out of practicing yoga, there will be short discussions on the assigned reading of handouts that explore various topics pertinent to yoga, such as an introduction to yogic philosophy, the essential of the human anatomy, the historical background of yoga, and a basic of knowledge of Sanskrit. The rudiments of meditation will begin and end every session. Students who are admitted to this course are required to have their own yoga mat. Students who don’t own a mat can swipe for one at the College Bookstore. Aided students will have the cost covered by the book grant.

Unit Notes: Sylvia has brought her love of movement to the yoga mat. After a career of performing as a professional dancer, then full time mother of 4 and teaching ballet and modern dance, Sylvia dived into the study of yoga 20 years ago. Intensive workshops with David Swenson , Shiva Rea, Patricia Walden , and Tasha Judson introduced her to the rigors of Ashtanga, the dynamic joy of Vinyasa, and the importance of precise alignement in asanas. Sylvia completed her 200 hour Teaching Training last month.
