Sanskrit And Indian Culture


August 16, 2019
05:30 PM until 08:30 PM


Do you wonder if you are pronouncing the name of a Yoga pose correctly in Sanskrit? Do you wish you understood a few basic rules of how words get joined in Sanskrit?

In this workshop, we will review the names of common asanas, understand correct pronunciation, and split up those long tongue-twisters into simple words. The workshop will also include discussion around how to be respectful when incorporating aspects of Indian culture into yoga classes.

The experience will be interactive, with a few fun exercises thrown in. You will have an opportunity to email specific Sanskrit-related questions prior to the workshop.

The discovery of the YogaLife Institute of NH's Teacher Training Program expanded his understanding of both physical and spiritual aspects of classical Yoga and promoted a spirit of inquiry and self-discovery.
