This 800-hour distance-learning course on the history, philosophy, and literature of Yoga was written and designed by Georg Feuerstein, Ph.D., over a period of two years (3,000 hours!). The course is based on his widely read book The Yoga Tradition (2d revised edition, copyright 2001 or 3d revised edition 2009), which is used as a textbook in many Yoga teacher training programs. Since the late 1960s, he has produced a steady flow of writings, which have been acknowledged by leading thinkers for their high quality and dedication to making authentic Yoga accessible to Westerners. If you have enjoyed Georg Feuerstein’s various writings, you are bound to also enjoy this course and find it helpful.

The course was designed (a) to deepen and broaden your knowledge of Yoga and (b) to assist your personal spiritual practice and inner growth at the same time. It will stimulate your thinking about Yoga and the Big Questions and also help you clarify your spiritual goals and/or motivate your daily spiritual practice. To this end, the homework also includes a number of simple practical assignments.
