Some therapeutic applications of the Yoga Sutras will be explored.
Asana & Ayurveda: Specific postures will be explored relative to the five directions of pranic movement and how that impacts the three doshas. Consideration will be given to the effect a pose has on the three doshas as well as the structural and subtle energies of the body.
