We hope the 200-hour “Language of Yoga” course will illuminate the inherent brilliance and true gift of Yoga, which is ever expansive. Knowledge of the Sanskrit sounds is important and this practice will be the core of our work together. The philosophy of Sanskrit and yoga is founded on the principle that everything is vibration, the basis of our existence where true peace lies. We practice tuning into these vibrations using kriya or tools such as prāṇāyāma, mudrā, āsana, and mantra chanting practices help to create clarity, quieting the noise of everyday life, thereby allowing us to experience life at a more subtle level, and most importantly to experience the higher purpose of Yoga. This along with contemplation of the concepts and philosophy of Yoga will help each of us attain our goals. Our own search is truly the only way to deepen our experience of existence. We will create a community to help support our learning together.
