We’re introducing something completely new to Drops! You can now learn Yoga Asanas in… Sanskrit! This language is a classical language spoken in South Asia. It still exists in several religious contexts, pop contexts, and is taught in schools. It is also used in yoga. 

About Sanskrit and Yoga

Sanskrit is the language originally used in yoga. And while you may learn pose names such as “downward dog”, you may also hear their equivalents in Sanskrit. It depends on the school you attend and how deeply you dive with the practice. But knowing the Sanskrit names of the poses you practice in yoga, helps you better understand the positions and their focus.
