EMBODIED SANSKRIT - Seeds of the Solstice

22 Jun 2019

There is a sense that time stands still through the potent days just after the summer solstice: let the Gayatri or 'Song' of the body take you toward the still turning point of the year through the breath. 

 

In this workshop you will encounter a practice for the junctions of day and night, to make the most sacred pilgrimage, that within your own body. Expect a gentle Scaravelli-inspired yoga practice session suitable for all, and some seated learning. 

 

You will get to see that Sanskrit is a language of great clarity and simplicity of expression: in this workshop we will unpack some of the verses on the breath of an ancient text, the Vijnanabhairavatantra, each of them a yoga practice in its own right. But more than just the language of the transmission of any one teaching, Sanskrit is an exploration of sound in the body. It is a path of perception into our very own embodiment, into the fabric of our tissues and the vibrational matrix of phenomenal existence itself.

 

Investigating the Bija mantras and letters of the Sanskrit alphabet you will make the first steps into the sounds of Sanskrit from an enquiry into the locations of sound production within your own body, and gain an awareness of how the sounds of Sanskrit call us into being as a part of the phenomenal world. In this workshop you will learn to write Sanskrit characters, recognise them for yourself in selected readings, and pronounce them with a grasp of what they convey.

 

Experience for yourself the embodied nature of Sanskrit in a celebration of the Summer solstice at Yoga Junction.

EMBODIED SANSKRIT - Seeds of Experience

24 Mar 2019

Why study Sanskrit?

Sanskrit is the language of the Yoga texts. A language of great clarity and simplicity of expression, grasping how it conveys meaning clarifies what these texts transmit for yogis, uncoloured by interpretation.

 

But more than this, Sanskrit is an exploration of sound in the body. It is a path of perception into our very own embodiment, into the fabric of our tissues and the vibrational matrix of phenomenal existence itself.

 

Seeds of Experience: An Embodied Sanskrit Workshop

On this introductory day to our Embodied Sanskrit pathway, you will make the first steps into the sounds of Sanskrit starting from an enquiry into the locations of sound production within your own body. 

Find your voice, unlock your authentic self-expression, and experience for yourself the power and alignment of the Yoga of Sound.
