Joshua Michaell

Practical Sanksrit 101:
Since ancient times the practice of yoga has included the study of Sanskrit.

Session: 1 module (provides 2.5 in class hours, giving 2.5 contact hours.)

Students and Teachers Track: This is for all levels of yoga interest and yoga experience. Beginner to experienced participants are all welcome. This session is for those who want to deepen their understanding of yoga, and what it is. Sanskrit is integral to the practice of asana: an essential adjunct for harmonizing and balancing the mind. Knowledge of Sanskrit, even at the most beginning level, makes it possible to grasp the subtleties of yoga philosophy, whose body of teachings are written in it. Through experiencing the profundity of Sanskrit sounds, your yoga practice and understanding can move to new depths.


Basic Sanskrit grammar, experiencing how sounds combine with each other.
The essential elements of Sanskrit sound, allowing you to develop
an intimacy with the language of yoga.
Asana (yoga pose) names, within the sounds of sanskrit
are the language of Yoga and it’s postures.

This class will be fun and engaging and can lead you deeper into your experience of yoga both on and off of the mat. No previous experience with Sanskrit is necessary to attend.

“If one has knowledge of Sanskrit, then knowledge of yoga is possible as well.” – Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois
