For Yoga Teachers and curious students!
Sanskrit is the language of vibration. It is the language that lets us tap into the ancient wisdom of the rishis of India. Sanskrit is the language that inspired all other languages. It is the language of your heart. When we engage with Sanskrit, we work with the very energetic essence of our being.
Join Jessica M. Lang Wright for this workshop introducing you to the technology of the Sanskrit language. Through chanting and writing we will learn the many benefits of bringing Sanskrit into our yogic practices as students and as teachers. You’ll begin to learn the mouth positions and breath support required to pronounce the 50 Sanskrit sounds that coordinate directly with our underlying spiritual physiology. Once familiar with the sounds, you’ll engage in oral and written practices that you can take with you to start to solidify your understanding and learning. A variety of handouts and resources will be provided so that you may continue your learning far beyond this workshop. For teachers, we’ll discuss how to introduce Sanskrit into your classes in ways that will allow for receptivity from your students.
Please bring a pencil and a notebook with ruled pages.
This workshop is offered in conjunction with Forever Yoga’s 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training program.
Jessica M. Lang Wright is the owner and principle teacher at Forever Yoga. Jessica had the great fortune to be introduced to Sanskrit early in her yoga teacher training and continued her studies with a variety of workshops and resources from teachers such as Ma Bhaskarananda of Ananda Ashram and Manorama. Jessica incorporates Sanskrit into all her public yoga classes through chanting of Sanskrit mantras with the support of the harmonium. She often reminds her students that Sanskrit is “yoga for your tongue” and that the effort and intention behind one’s chanting is what is most important. Read her full bio here.
