Intro to Sanskrit
***This workshop counts as 3 hours towards the Laughing River Yoga 300hr Teacher Training Program.
This 3-hour workshop will familiarize you with the unique points of resonance in your palate that support Sanskrit’s sacred sounds and help you to become more firmly grounded in the proper pronunciation of this ancient language.
In this workshop you will:

- Learn the International Alphabet of Sanskrit Transliteration (IAST), so you can correctly Sanskrit pronounce words written in the Roman script, for example, prāṇāyāma
- Practice pronouncing Sanskrit terms and chants common to many yoga practitioners
- Explore Devanāgarī script and learn to translate such words आसन
This workshop will be held in-person at the Chace Mill.
