      Chanting the Sutras with Shelly

      When we practice yoga for a duration of time we eventually become curious about what it has to offer us beyond physical postures. This course is an opportunity to explore the Yoga of Sound (Nada) and the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali which has become a pivotal text in the Yoga canon.

      In this class, we will learn the foundation of Sanskrit Vedic chanting, along with the first book or ‘Pada’ of the Yoga Sutras.

      The wisdom in the first book, or the Samadhi Pada, of Patañjali’s Yoga Sutras contains the groundwork for any aspiring or seasoned yogi. The first book gives insight on how to experience, recognize and have access to samadhi, and how it is available to us in every moment. As we all know, experiential practice brings a new level of multi-dimensional understanding. Chanting these sutras in Sanskrit and in Vedic meter allow the practitioner to:

      · Enhance your Sanskrit vocabulary
      · Cultivate a Sanskrit chanting practice
      · Experience the meaning of the sutras on a deep physiological level
      · Access samadhi, our inherent state
      What you can expect:

      · How to read transliterated Sanskrit
      · Traditional Patañjali invocation
      · Fundamentals of Vedic Meter
      · Introduction to correct pronunciation of the 50 Sanskrit syllables
      · First 51 stanzas or sutras
      · Light exploration of translations by TKV Desikachar, Pandit Rajmani Tigunait, BKS Iyengar, Dr. Katy Jane, and Sri Swami Satchidananda
      (at least one copy of one of these translations is recommended, however not required)

      No experience necessary
