prasida yoga

Sanskrit Class

The science for learning Sanskrit is based in the knowledge that the entire physical world is composed of vibration. Our physiology and even our thoughts are, at their source, particular impulses/resonances. It teaches that a mind anchored in harmonious resonances can restore the spirit and promote the health and vitality of the body.

Sanskrit for Yogis™ is an introductory and open to anyone, teachers and students alike, with a genuine interest in:
• understanding the power of the Sanskrit alphabet (Matrika Shakti)
• learning how the alphabet has a "protective" and healing effect for the physiology and mental/ emotional body
• learning correct pronunciation to empower mantra
• applying the knowledge to understand longer chants & to cultivate meditation

The class is mainly instruction in Sanskrit, not asana. However, as we progress we may be able to study more specifically how Sanskrit directly relates to and enlivens a physical practice.

Pre-registration is required. Please feel free to contact the instructor, Silke, with any questions. email:
