Intro to “Sanskrit for Yoga” (Blue Point Yoga) (09/30/17)

I am pleased to present an audio recording of the presentation on "Intro to Sanskrit for Yoga" that I made on Saturday, September 30, 2017 to the students undergoing yoga teacher training at the Blue Point Yoga Center in Durham under the guidance of Sara Doyle.

Brief summary of what we covered:

  • General characteristics of the Sanskrit language
  • Sanskrit alphabet – 48 letters; vowels are written first, then consonants
  • Sanskrit sounds are produced by placing the tongue in various positions in the mouth
  • Sanskrit transliteration – diacritical marks with examples
  • Pronunciation of some of the common yoga terms – asana names, pranayama, meditation, yoga sutras, common words, numerals
  • More on language characteristics
