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, or in just deepening your yoga practice - this class is appropriate for all levels.
We will spend the first half hour of each class chanting and discussing yoga-related texts, to begin in the spirit of the oral tradition of śruti-paramparā.
During the class, students will be broken into groups depending on ability and given individual instruction and assignments. We will be learning from my Sanskrit textbook, Yogāvatāraṇam: The Translation of Yoga, which began as notes for teaching this course.
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.
