The core workshop introduces the fascinating linguistic foundation of yoga. We focus on the highly organized sound system, pronunciation, spelling, and multiple meaning of words that you hear, say, read, and sing. Our time together includes lecture, discussion, and call & response recitation of letters. You will leave with Sanskrit words rolling off your tongue! No previous language study is required.
Combine this workshop with others to deepen your knowledge:
1) Sanskrit focused āsana practice – to embody the sounds
2) Timeline of Yoga History: from 2500 B.C.E. to the Ever-Changing Modern Moment
3) Topics: “How Do You Say ‘Cakra’? and More About Cakras,” “The Sanskrit of the Bhagavadgītā,” “The Sanskrit of the Yoga Sūtra,” “The Sanskrit of Āyurveda”
Classes are tailored to any yoga style:
