Connect with Sanskrit’s timeless sounds through the chanting of classic ancient texts; The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and the Bhagavad Gita. Sanskrit is the language of Yoga. It is a powerful and sacred language. The resonance created when chanting is not just pleasing to the ears but it’s vibratory effects have a subtle effect on our consciousness. The Yoga Sutras is the quintessential text on the practice of Yoga. Through the study of the Sutras we can obtain profound insight into the nature of the True Self. The Bhagavad Gita is a fundamental text that describes all of the paths of yoga that ultimately lead to the goal of connecting with the True Self. The Gita’s rich, poetic language describes yoga’s purpose to bring peace, happiness, and harmony to mind, body, and soul.

No experience necessary, students will be reading from transliterated text and chanting along through call and response with the teacher. Discussion of the philosophy will give the student a better understanding of the practice of Yoga. Texts will be provided.

Kacey Davy is a teacher with the American Sanskrit Institute (ASI) and also teaches Ashtanga & Sanskrit classes at Tahoe Yoga Shala in South Lake Tahoe.
