Project Idea: Yoga

You might think of yoga as a form of exercise, but there is much more to Yoga, and you could use your project in this class to learn more about ancient Yoga traditions and their connection to the Indian epics.

Research Tip: Start with the Wikipedia article about Yoga, and you might also enjoy the article about Yogis and about Yoginis. Check out the article about Tapas too (spiritual power, not the appetizer). You can also look at some famous yoga Asanas whose names come from the Indian storytelling tradition: Anantasana, Anjaneyasana, Aṣṭāvakrasana, Bhairavasana, Bharadvajasana, Garuḍasana, Hanumanasana, Kalyasana, Natarajasana, Surya Namaskara , Tandavasana, Trivikrama, Vajrasana, and Vasiṣṭhasana.
