Sanskrit Revolution!

Saturday, May 20th, 3:15-7:15pm $50

Ever wondered what your teacher is saying in Sanskrit? Would you like to pronounce Sanskrit words confidently? Do you know the deeper meanings of common terms such as “asana”?

This workshop will demystify pronunciations, spellings, and definitions of words that you hear, say, read, and sing. You will learn fascinating things and walk away with a true appreciation for this sacred sound system.

Understanding the language of yoga will enhance your practice and professionalize your teaching!

From new students to lead instructors, all are welcome.

Session includes a study guide and audio file of our group’s call-and-response recitation of the letters. RYTs earn CEUs.
