with Bonnie Stewart

Discover the magic power of the ancient vibrational language Sanskrit, the language of Yoga, which is known to have extraordinary healing powers. We will delve into the history and sacred sounds of the Sanskrit alphabet, the sacred syllable Aum, the use of mantra as medicine, and the basic principles of nāda yoga. Learn how the proper pronunciation of Sanskrit words will give them their full power, how to weave mantra into your daily practice, get to know the Hindu deities, and journey into the healing sound of your own unique voice. This workshop is for everyone and will especially benefit yoga teachers and practitioners.
