Description *******Over 5,000 students are enrolled in this course*******May your meditations bring you peace, happiness, and bliss. SJYoga is a whole life process. Ultimately, there is only one Yoga with many aspects. Swami Rama does a superb job of describing the various aspects of this one Yoga.In this course, over 25 core principles and practices of traditional Yoga are presented as described by the 20th century Yogi, Swami Rama of the Himalayas. Along with each of the 25 presentations, there are 25 (1 each) brief guided meditations/contemplations from Swami Jnaneshvara that bring added life and personal experience to the presentations.This course is for those who already have some exposure to Yoga, and wish to explore the subtler principles. If you have ever heard of, or are interested in Yoga as expounded in the traditions of the Himalayas, you may quite enjoy this overview of the essence of Yoga through the eyes of Swami Rama of the Himalayas (1925-1996). Yet, the information and practices of this tradition are universal, and applicable to all people. My most endearing memories are of walks and talks with Swami Rama along the River Ganges, in the foothills of the Himalayas. He held my hand and guided me in the subtler principles and practices of Yoga as practiced by our Himalayan meditation tradition. For over 20 years I have been helping to pass on these principles and practices, which are being highlighted here in this course. It has been widely said that when the student is ready, the teacher will appear. Putting this together is-for me-an act of gratitude and love for Swami Rama, the one who showed up in my life, as well as a gift to you.We hope this course gives you lots of ‘food for thought’ about Yoga and spiritual life. Please use these readings as contemplations, reflecting on the principles in your own words. Then, allow the insights to lead you to silent, wordless inner contemplative meditations. May your meditations bring you peace, happiness, and bliss.We had a lot of fun putting this together for you. For those of you who will enjoy this offering, I am.In loving service,Swami Jnaneshvara (Swami J) Overview Section 1: Introduction Lecture 1 Introduction Lecture 2 Q&A Button Lecture 3 Introduction to the Instructors Lecture 4 Smiles of the Divine Lecture 5 Contemplation on the Readings Section 2: Yoga Lecture 6 What is Yoga?
