Truly deepen your practice, uncover new layers of meaning, and enjoy immersing yourself in the language of yoga in this 3-session course on Sanskrit and Vedic Chanting!
We will use yoga pose names, well-known chants, and yoga sutra-s as the keys to unlock our understanding of Sanskrit, as well as connect to the energy — the prāṇa — in the language and in ourselves.
