This workshop focuses on Sanskrit, the language of yoga. Typical classes do not have the opportunity to delve into this somewhat intimidating aspect of yoga.
Mark will lead this study, focusing on the alphabet and pronunciation of Sanskrit. You will apply this knowledge to yoga poses and versus from yoga texts. Handouts will be provided.
Learn techniques to remember named poses, what these names mean and interesting facts about the language, plus daily usage.
Having an understanding of the language allows deeper understanding of yoga poses and practice.
Note: this is not a physical posture class.
