Yoga 15/25/35 (3 credits)

Balance - Strength - Breath - Relax - Focus

The High School Yoga course offers students the opportunity to study yoga as a subject in its own right. It is designed to introduce students, safely, to the basic postures (asanas), breathing techniques, and relaxation methods of yoga. It will also introduce students to the historical roots of yoga, and give them an understanding of anatomy and physiology as it applies to this discipline.

“Yoga helps me take a deep breath and appreciate my body and my mind. It also helps me enjoy the present moment. At first I thought it was just stretching, but now I know it is much more. It allows you to really focus in on your life and make healthier decisions and choices” -Grade 12 Yoga Student

The science of yoga (sanskrit /yug/ meaning to join, to yoke; union) has been around for thousands of years. It began as a way to prepare one’s body and mind for hours of meditation. The practitioners would link the movement of their body with their breath. The exact beginning of yoga cannot be pinpointed, but stone carvings depicting figures in yogic asanas (positions) have been found in archeological sites in the Indus Valley.

“Yoga has made me stronger and more flexible. It has also made me more relaxed for exams and assignments.” -Grade 11 Yoga Student

Students will develop an enhanced appreciation of their own body, and an acceptance of its uniqueness. The program is designed to allow students to experience the benefits of increased flexibility, strength, focus and concentration. Students will learn to be non-judgmental about their own and others’ yoga practice. Through continued practice, students will relieve stress, learn to relax and experience the health benefits of a yoga practice.

“Not only does yoga help me physically it also helps me focus and puts me in a place that I am not distracted. It has helped me with my school work and with the sports I play. I no longer feel the stress that I used to feel.” - Grade 10 Yoga Student

Through a daily yoga practice students will gain strength and flexibility, relieve stress and experience the health benefits of yoga.
