Understanding Yoga: Independent Research
Kind of Activity:
Research the philosophical and spiritual context of the Gita.
Common Core Standards:
In order to better understand the context of the text, which may be new for some students, have them embark on an independent study of yogic philosophy and practice.
Ask students to write a 2-4 page essay, or create a five-minute presentation, on a topic in yoga that they find interesting. Provide topics and allow students to suggest other topics if they choose. Some ideas include:
What is yoga?
Jnana Yoga : The Path of Wisdom
Karma Yoga: The Path of Service
