Fundamentals of Yoga Philosophy and Sanskrit with Karen Allgire
The path of yoga is based upon principles that guide us through life and support us as we explore deeper aspects of our being. These ideas are expressed through the language of Sanskrit, which means “perfected language.” Learn to integrate yogic philosophy into your asana practice. We will chant the Sanskrit alphabet and learn how to read the diacritical marks for correct pronunciation of pose names and yogic concepts.
