Sanskrit: The Language of Yoga

Sanskrit: The Language of Yoga
w/ Shubhada Wavikar of Revolution Community Yoga
Sunday, October 24th @ 1 – 3pm
$30 Pre-registration fee / $40 day of workshop
In-Studio & Online (Those attending online will have access to the recording for 14 days.)


Sanskrit is the language of yoga. Understanding some basic Sanskrit words can deepen your knowledge of the meaning and purpose of yoga āsanas, and enrich your grasp of yoga philosophy. Learning to pronounce Sanskrit correctly is important, since the way you pronounce a word can entirely change the meaning, and its vibration.

This workshop is for anyone interested in understanding some of the Sanskrit words used in yoga. The goal is to make yogic Sanskrit more accessible. We will sound and repeat some words to develop an ease with the pronunciation. Depending on interest, we will chant some mantras.

Shubhada Wavikar
Originally from India, I see yoga as a way of life, a philosophy for living. I have great appreciation for the mind, body, breath and soul connection of yoga. I am deeply interested in all of yoga’s teachings and practices – including, and beyond, āsana. Yoga, to me, is an incredible – often transformative – blessing that should be accessible to everyone – to all bodies and all abilities. I embarked on the teaching journey a few years ago to deepen my own practice, and to be able to humbly share this legacy with others. Each student is a teacher, and I look forward to a continued exchange of learning. I received my 200 hour and 300 hour teacher training at The Yoga Studio in Millis, MA, and an additional 300 hour teacher training at Down Under Yoga, MA. I am trained as a Divine Sleep ® Yoga Nidra teacher. I am also a certified Kidding Around Yoga (KAY) Teacher (for kids’ yoga), and teach at a daycare. I have several continuing education hours in senior yoga, and teach chair yoga at three senior living facilities. When not on my mat, I love being outdoors, gardening and hiking.
