This proposal is a natural extension and culmination of my original NDI project and will further intensify my study of yoga. Following completion of a 300-hour yoga teacher training course, I propose to spend a month in residence at an ashram (teaching center) in India, either at the Shri K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute in Mysore, the birthplace of Ashtanga yoga, or at Yoga Vidya Gurukul (University) in Nasik, Maharashtra, whose program is also grounded in Ashtanga yoga, but which also includes courses in yoga therapy, pranayama (breath work), and meditation. As indicated on my original proposal, this project brings together my scholarly interests in philosophy of mind and my long-time personal passion for yoga. I am interested in the relationship between mind and body and, specifically, in human embodiment and intersubjectivity (how two people can share mental states or be engaged in joint activity). To date, undergoing the yoga teacher training has allowed me not only to explore embodiment--mine and that of others--but also contributed to my understanding of the nature of practice and, frankly, of commitment. Although yoga has thrived in North America, there remains something deeply authentic about studying yoga in India. By undertaking this journey, I hope to be in a better position to assess the spiritual and philosophical aspects of my yoga training, not least because I will able to relate them to their cultural context of origin. In short, I hope to become a more authentic yoga practitioner and teacher.
