Om Namah Sivaya Gurave

Lord Shiva as Nataraja, the Cosmic Dancer

I'm excited to be teaching a session called Basic Sanskrit and More this morning at Yoga for Today as part of the Continuing Education Certification for Yoga Teachers.

This session offers an introduction to the Devanagari script, transliteration, linguistic diacritic marks, pronunciation tips, and basic Sanskrit vocabulary through a beautiful mantra from the Niralamba Upanishad dedicated to the Lord of Yoga, Lord Shiva.

It is a beautiful teaching on the Guru, both internal and external.  Well known by yogis, it is chanted in many different melodies (including the one on my cd!!)

To whet your appetite, here is a lovely version by Manorama.  See you there!

Can't make it today?  Not a yoga "teacher"?  Want to attend this workshop or offer it at your studio?  Email me at:
