Terms based on yoga philosophy and scripture seem to be reserved for just the elite who understand sanskrit words such as purusha, prakriti, and the gunas. These are words to take in slowly and to digest with patience. They reveal a side of yoga that often exists only on the fringe of classroom work—if at all. But once assimilated, these terms will travel deeply into the byways of your thinking and add a fulfilling richness to your life and practice. Objective: Participants will get a strong foundation to read and chant sanskrit as well as understanding of basic concepts rooted in yoga philosophy of the Yoga Sutras and the Bhagavad Gita. You will understand the simple distinction between the subject and the object of our awareness, and will be equipped with techniques to access such awareness.
