The science and practice of yoga is framed in Sanskrit words and verses. Learning Sanskrit basics and pronunciation is helpful for any student or teacher of yoga. Learning some Sanskrit helps us make the cultural shift that leads to a deeper understanding of yoga philosophy. Many terms in yoga have no accurate English equivalents. We can step deeper into the world of yoga even with a brief foray into Sanskrit. Please join us for this class with Sanskrit enthusiast Rhonda Kuster, who has been teaching Sanskrit for groups ranging from New York to Florida.
April 13, at Yoga Central, 1:00 to 4:00 pm.
$55, or $45 early bird before April 1st. (free for YTT students)
This class is a shared container for liberating the imagination (mythos) and body (soma) from the toxicity of the impact of inherited notions of who and how we are supposed to be, so that who and how we actually are can flow unimpeded from the source of our being into expression in our lives. This is a ritualized praxis that works in alignment with seasonal and lunar cycles, weaving lyrical movement, somatic yoga, breathwork, restorative yoga, massage and craniosacral in service to collective liberation.
This is an all-levels, all-bodies welcome class that nourishes the organs, cultivates vitality, and fortify’s the nervous system.
** While not a religious class, its foundation is spiritual and technologies such as ritual, prayer, invocation, and imagery are part of the practice. All are encouraged to come with a curiosity for possibility.
Co-led by Oviya Blackerby and Mike Curtis. Oviya has 8 years experience in bodywork, 10 years in birth work and 18 years in yoga therapy and movement education.
