Spring 2018 Speaker Series: Yoking Up Yoga

Date

Feb 21, 2018 - 7:00 p.m.

Location

100 LaSalle Street (aka 124th Street bet. Broadway/Amsterdam), Main Floor Room #MC

Where does Yoga come from and where is it going? Is Yoga an important part of Hinduism? Some answers to these questions may surprise you.

This series of talks, with discussion, is the result of collaboration between three organizations: Emeritus Professors in Columbia (EPIC); Columbia University School of Professional Studies; and Morningside Retirement and Health Services (MRHS). This is the second year for the series which is open to the public without charge.

Emeritus Professors in Columbia (EPIC) is a professional and social fellowship of people who have formally retired from their Columbia careers as university professors, researchers, and administrators but are still professionally active. Since its founding in 1998, EPIC has worked to continually expand its portfolio of activities and in 2017 launched its first Speakers Series in collaboration with the CU School of Professional Studies (SPS) Community Relations office.

Speakers

Frances Pritchett, Professor Emerita of Modern Indic Languages, Department of Middle Eastern, South Asian, and African Studies, Columbia University.
