Rhonda Kuster: Sanskrit Level 2 Workshop

  • Yoga on High 1020 Dennison Ave., Suite 202 Columbus, Oh 43201 USA (map)


Saturday, August 31 from 1:00p to 5:00p


Rhonda Kuster



For the first time Rhonda is offering this workshop that builds on what you learned in her Level 1 class. Rhonda will briefly review what you learned in Level 1, including the Sanskrit alphabet sounds, understanding the diacritical marks and the five mouth positions.

Then the class will delve more deeply into this ancient beautiful language to learn how to pronounce more asana names and inquire into the stories of some of the yoga poses, such as Virabhadrasana and Matsyendrasana, and how Ganesha got his name (and his elephant head!).

You’ll learn the proper pronunciation of the chakras and chant their associated bija mantras in various ways so we can understand how to use them in order to bring more harmony to our subtle body system.

You’ll learn chants in greater depth including the Gayatri Mantra and the Purnamadah Purnamidam invocation from the Isha Upanishad, more of Patanjali’s yoga sutras and one of The Radiance Sutras (Lorin Roche’s translation of the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra) beloved by so many of us. Rhonda will also share with you the 7 different ways to chant mantras that she learned from her teacher, Jehangir Palkhivala.

Our Sanskrit journey continues here. Bring an inquisitive mind, an open heart, and a voice that's ready to sing these deeply meaningful and eloquent chants.

A $50.00 cancellation fee is included in the workshop cost. No refunds will be given within 30 days of the start date of workshop.
