What we will cover

Sanskrit – the sacred language of Yoga
Pronunciation – learn the basic phonetics and sounds and gain confidence to use the language to enrich your teaching and engage with the sacred texts on a deeper level. How we pronounce Sanskrit matters as meanings can change quite dramatically with even a slight deviation.

We will discuss and study of the following texts

Upanishads
