Excellent course, it tied together the physiology and yoga very well, the videos that showed how to do the poses and then reminded you what that pose was doing physiologically was very helpful.

Incredible course, full of relevant subject knowledge as well as very-valuable personal experiential wisdom from Teachers. I have been a Yoga practitioner for 15years and this course has helped me cross-over from being a Yoga Enthusiast to a FIRM BELIEVER - in its powerful & intrinsic impact on living a Healthy, Integrated, Wholistic life, and achieve balance in one's Body, Mind and Soul. I will revisit the learnings and knowledge of the course, to ingrain them and apply them. My thanks to Alex and Eddie, and hoping that I meet then when I visit NY :)

I found this to be a perfect course to teach oneself the basics of yoga but more importantly the scientific explanation why and how this works on the various systems and organs of the body. It covers many weeks but I welcomed the amount of material, with an interaction of theory, research and practice. I would think anyone could find value for this time investment.

All the lecturers were outstanding but the two main lecturers were superb, able to speak clearly and directly to you without reading from a screen prompt. Bravo!

This course is a beautiful combination of yoga and physiology. You'll learn about the affects of yoga on chronic diseases, chronic pain and stress as well as other pathologies and it's numerous benefits on our overall health and wellbeing as well as that yoga is not just the movement but rather holistic approach to life. It affects many aspects of our life and can help in many areas of our life as stress reduction, that has a big impact on all the other systems in our body. I recommend to everyone that found this course.

This is a gem of a course, this is the best course I have ever done in Coursera and it's same in standard as the classics from Tim (Algorithm) and Andrew (ML) and some of the Banking and Finance classic courses.

This course should go into the Hall of Fame. I have benefited immensely from this course and thanks the instructors from the bottom of my heart for producing a course like this.

My only request for future edition will be to provide pdf for reading suggestions, 70% of them are behind a paywall.

Este curso me encantó! Abarca todos los sistemas del cuerpo, te ayuda a profundizar más en el conocimiento sobre yoga y la meditación. Los impactos que tiene sobre el cuerpo y mente los he podido emplear en mi vida diaria y en mis clases. He logrado que mis clases tengan otra intención, que es sanar a mis estudiantes y ayudar a que tenga mejor calidad de vida a traves de la practica de yoga y meditación. Infinitas gracias por su trabajo y espero que hagan más proyectos parecidos.

I thoroughly enjoyed learning in an interactive way, by participating in yoga sessions, how practicing yoga has such an influential benefit on our physiological systems, such as nervous, respiratory, circulatory, muscular skeletal, and lymphatic systems, as well as it helps in reducing chronic stress and pain. The instructors are excellent in explaining how our complex physiological systems are influenced by yoga practice to reduce stress. I highly recommend taking this course.

Thank you for this course opportunity! I have always known that yoga practice was good for overall health and now I understand more fully the physiological reasons why. This was interesting, informative and fun.

This was a very interesting and engaging course. It was a great way to learn some physiology in an applied manner that kept it interesting and fun. This course has also helped me learn how to manage my stress level with yoga and see how it can make a huge impact on quality of life. I hope to one day help other people manage their own stress and improve their quality of life through exercise and diet.

A very excellent course, and tremendous mentors. I have not seen any course anywhere so well explained. connection between human physiology and its relation with yoga. It also includes some inspections while learning that how far one could understand the lessons, and flexible timings also an advantage. Moreover, interviews are eyeopeners. Skilled doctors and professionals are a part of this course.

I​ am sooo glad I carved out the time for the course. With every module, I learned information that I was able to immediately deploy in my yoga classes. Most of the presenters/lecturers were excellent. Most of the material was presented clearly and compellingly. Although some improvements are needed, I still rate it a 5/5. It was worth every minute of my time!

This is a very interesting course for any level of yoga practitioner who would like to learn more details about Anatomy, digestive systems, endocrine systems, and how important and relationship between the nervous system, and sympathetic and parasympathetic systems is in yoga practice. The interview sessions are also very interesting.

The Course is very informative and clear. Very interesting not only for yoga teachers and therapists but for anyone who practices yoga or is thinking about starting yoga. In this course, you will learn much more than yoga asanas/ postures but the correlation between the body's systems and the effects of yoga in this system.

Absolutely wonderful course that made science easier for me to digest when combined with the yoga! A great balance of theoretical and practical knowledge.

T​his course is very informative. I love how the lessons were supplemented by interviews of experts in the field of science, and included a lot of research papers to read and review, and yoga practices that are centered on the week's topic. This course has definitely enriched my practice as a student and teacher of yoga.

A very interesting course giving a good overview of how Yoga is beneficial to the overall health and well being of an individual. The correlation of the physiological background and the videos explaining how to do and vary the asanas as per individual capacity is highly informative and easy to understand.
