Sanskrit: The Divine Vibration

I find it a very rewarding meditative practice to incorporate Sanskrit into my yoga. For me, Sanskrit is yet another form of yoga – each of the sounds in the Sanskrit alphabet is considered sacred, a divine vibration that, when you combine them to form a word, is the energetic signature of that object.


Yoga has been practiced for thousands of years, so when you speak the Sanskrit word for a pose or an action, you are stepping into that legacy, embodying that seat. It’s not just speaking a word, it’s speaking what that word represents into existence. You quite literally feel the vibration through your system, and those words resonate with your chakras and your energy body.
