Immerse yourSELF into the Vibrational Wisdom of Sanskrit

Take a deep dive into the practice and pronunciation of Sanskrit! Together we will apply our learnings to names of asanas, yogic elements and principles. We’ll explore the connections between sounds in Sanskrit and meridian points in the physical body. Our learning will encompass a more comprehensive understanding of the language of yoga and how it forms the foundation of our breath, meditation, physical and introspective practices. We will follow the threads, the sutras between vibration, as a healing modality and apply this to the practice of mantra and chanting.
