How to pronounce Sanskrit names of Asanas

I have put together a resource page on my website where for many of the asanas (physical postures) that are commonly practiced, I have provided the following information:

  • Picture of the asana
  • Name in both English and Sanskrit
  • Name written in Devanagari  (Sanskrit) script
  • An audio recording of the name in perfectly accurate Sanskrit

I certainly hope that you will find this resource valuable to you. I would love to get your feedback. If there are other asanas that you would like me to include on the page, please do let me know.

Detox with Fasting

In early 2006, while I was attending the 2-month yoga philosophy course at the Sivananda Ashram in Rishikesh, India, one of the teachers gave us a talk on fasting – its techniques, benefits etc. Even though fasting is a common practice in the Indian culture, I had never considered fasting prior to this talk.
