Professor: Lydia Van Dreel

4.00 credits

  • CRN 22402: Monday & Wednesday, 10:00-11:20am @ AGT 100

As embodied humans, we move through the world with information gathered from our senses. This course will explore the subjects of human anatomy and somatic therapy by engaging in movement practices designed to facilitate an embodied understanding of the functionality of human anatomy and various somatic practices which facilitate health and well-being. Students will be required to bring their own yoga mat and clothing comfortable for movement practices one might encounter in a gentle yoga or stretching class. As an HC 301 research and writing course, students will be expected to write an original research paper by the end of the term. Assigned readings will provide useful theoretical frameworks and avenues for further research.
