You will also need to find and reference at least three articles that relate to your essay.
- Select one disease theory that explains yoga as medicine, based on your anthropological understanding of healing systems:

- Discuss the effect of ethnographic research (attending the yoga class) on your own viewpoint
If you don't find articles with the first search term you type in, think of other words that might work:

Use the subject search or look for the thesaurus, which lists the search terms.
