The Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies is a recognised independent Centre of Oxford University, which is globally renowned
for its standards of academic excellence and achievement. Each term we offer a range of online courses that explore various facets of Indian religion. For the upcoming term, starting in October, we will be offering a course in the 'Philosophy of Yoga', which will provide a detailed study of the background to Yoga practice, including discussion of texts such as the Upanishads, Bhagavad-gita and Yoga Sutras as well as the Tantric traditions and the main works on Hatha Yoga. The course is detailed, thorough and exhaustive and provides a complete overview of the subject area in line with the academic standards of Oxford University. Further details can be found on the Centre's website, www.ochs.org.uk, by following the Continuing Education link to online courses.

Training in IYM, you will work with your mind as much as your body, showing you how to unlock your flexibility and
how to work with your stiffest muscle, the one between your ears. We will teach you about 1st and 2nd brain intelligence and how to listen and communicate using both – in standalone mindfulness practices and IYM sequences. This approach develops a toolkit for you and your future students to self-reference in all actions and activities.
Hugh Poulton and Sarah Haden are developers of IYM. Their outside the box approach is a product of Hugh’s 30+ years of yoga + mindfulness experience and Sarah’s contemporary perspective.
