Opening the Gates to Your Highest Spiritual Potential

ENLIVEN Your Inner Core with Sanskrit

At the heart of yoga for 5,000 years, it's time you experience the power of Sanskrit. As you intone its 50 syllables, you'll enliven, awaken, and strengthen your inner core, making your body, mind, and spirit fir for the higher stages of yoga. Learn Sanskrit in Sanskrit.

ENRICH Your Yoga Practice with Sanskrit

Move beyond the mistaken notion that Sanskrit is a dead, classical language requiring a long and painful commitment to learn. In a short time, you'll easily pronounce the names for the yoga poses, increase the depth of your breath, and cultivate new pathways for the flow of prana (life force) with the vibrations of Sanskrit. Understand the real value and purpose of the Yoga Sutras within the practice of yoga.

ENLIGHTEN Mind, Body and Spirit with Sanskrit

Yoga is not just a physical exercise. It achieves profound expansion of the mind and spirit through the technology of Sanskrit as sacred sound. The practice of Sanskrit recitation:

  • Increases Mental Alertness
  • Sensitizes Emotional Awareness
  • Enables Effortless Silent Meditation
  • Sonically Aligns Yoga Poses, Stimulation Nadis, Marmanis and Chakras

The Sanskrit For Yoga™ Difference

Sanskrit for Yoga™ programs directly immerse you in the practice of Sanskrit cherished by traditional yogis for thousands of years - as a technology for awakening and expanding your life force. Explore the real meaning of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, Bhagavad Gita, Upanishads and Vedas. And learn the Sanskrit names of yoga poses and why they are named specifically as they are to actualize sonic alignment of the poses for your highest stimulation of pranic life force.
