An understanding of Sanskrit can help to connect us to the rich fabric of philosophy from which the yoga tradition emerged and thus deepen our practice. Sanskrit study can be a meditation in itself and helps to cultivate concentration. It is also fun!
Sunday, January 7th, 12-1PM
The Ādityahṛdayam, “the heart of the Sun,” is a chant to the Sun God, from the Yuddha Kāṇḍa (6th book) of the Rāmāyaṇa. It can be chanted before practice in order to gather the energy and vitality of the sun. In this workshop we will chant this auspicious mantra, discuss its meaning and invoke the courage to face our own obstacles and fears.
Sundays, Feb. 4th & 18th, March 11th, 18th & 25th, 12-1:30PM (4 out of 5 classes)
Whether you are brand new to studying Sanskrit or have some experience - interested in learning proper pronunciation, reading the devanāgarī script, delving into meaning and grammar, this class is for you. The study of Sanskrit at any level will deepen your yoga practice both on and off the mat - opening your heart, mind and soul to greater levels of subtle awareness, concentration and understanding.
Saturday - Sunday, October 28th - 29th
Through chanting and discussion of texts, mantras, and āsana names, we will explore the ways in which the yoga philosophy is embedded within our daily yoga practice and how we can draw on and deepen those connections. All levels are welcome!
All are welcome!
