Sanskrit for Yogis: an Interactive Introduction
LIVE ONLINE COURSE
Thursday 23 September for 5 Thursdays – 6.00 to 7.30pm
This unique interactive small group five week course will introduce you to Sanskrit – the language of yoga – through a weekly 90 minute live online class. It will give you the skills to pronounce Sanskrit words accurately, and to recognise some basic word forms – all in the context of an interesting, less well known, yoga text. We will structure our learning around the Yoga Tārāvalī (the ‘Yoga Constellation’), a text which is not as widely known as texts like the Yoga Sūtra or the Haṭha Yoga Pradīpikā, but which is composed in reasonably accessible Sanskrit and contains some interesting – and often very poetic – teachings about yoga. No previous knowledge of Sanskrit (or of the Yoga Tārāvalī) is needed, but a basic understanding of grammatical (and yoga) concepts will be helpful. Find out more and book here.

Sanskrit for Yogis: Part 2
LIVE ONLINE COURSE
Thursday 4 November for 4 Thursdays – 6.00 to 7.30pm
If you have taken Sanskrit for Yogis: an Interactive Introduction or studied Sanskrit anywhere else, why not sign up to deepen your knowledge? We will explore the Sanskrit and teachings of the Īśā Upaniṣad, one of the most respected of all the Vedic Upaniṣads in a four week journey of discovery. You will be expected already to have an understanding of the basics of Sanskrit pronunciation (using Sanskrit transliterated into western script), to have some knowledge of the most common Sanskrit noun declensions, and be able to recognise third person singular and plural present tense verb forms, though these will be reviewed at the start of the course. Find out more and book here.
