Banyen's Description: 

With more than 15 million North Americans practicing yoga, here is the ultimate reference guide for knowledge-hungry yoga students.

Because it is the language of yoga, understanding Sanskrit’s key terminology and its pronunciation can deepen a practitioner’s knowledge of the yogic path.

Urdhva-Padmásana. Have you ever been bewildered in a yoga class by the terms the teacher uses? What is the deeper meaning of these terms? How can you benefit by knowing them? For passionate and curious yoga students, The Language of Yoga offers the definitive “A–Y” of asana names and Sanskrit terms (there is no “Z” in Sanskrit).

Sanskrit is called Devavani—the language of the Gods—because it is believed that the Gods understand and communicate in Sanskrit. Its resonant sounds contains a transformational power that, when properly pronounced and understood, opens you to the traditional heart and soul of yoga, and attunes you more deeply to the Divine.

This interactive book-and-2-CD set includes more than 200 asanas with illustrated yoga postures and 300 Sanskrit definitions. Nicolai Bachman teaches you how to read and pronounce these sacred sounds with precision, and guides you through seven yoga chants with exact rhythm, tone, and pronunciation—an auspicious reference guide for expanding your yoga practice to the next level of awareness.
