What is Speak Like a Yogi?


Speak Like a Yogi is an oportunity to deepen your understanding of Sanskrit and the overall yoga community. This chapter of each program allows us expand on a common phrase or term that you may hear around the yoga studio.  


Speak Like a Yogi in the Asana Series 

Level 1 - Namaste 

Level 2 - OM 

Level 3 - Pranayama

What is the cadence of the language program? 


Each posture is its own 'chapter'. The cadance of the Hear it, Speak it, Repeat it is... 


English name > Sanskrit name broken down> Sanskrit name quietly > Sanskrit name full speed x 3. We would recommend listening to the entire program the first time through, then you can go back and focus on specific posture names. 

What do I get when I purchase a program? 
Each program focuses on 20 popular yoga postures. In addition, you will receive a pronunciation guide and a Speak Like a Yogi chapter. Posture difficulty increases as you progress through each program level.

What if I want to become fluent in Sanskrit?


The Speak Like A Yogi program is not for those individuals who hope to become fluent in Sanskrit. There are other programs out there that are specifically designed for individuals who hope to become conversational and if you contact me I would be happy to send a reference.  

What lineage do the pronunciations come from?

The program is based on the Krishnamacharya lingeage. Disclaimer about pronunciation: We strive to use the most commonly used pronunciation, however there are multiple variations based on the lineage.


Embrace the flow. 

Can I create a custom flow? 

Yes. Well soon... We will be launching a custom flow program for individuals and studios. You will pick the postures, we record them AND will create custom cover art. Contact Us for more information. 

What if the download does not play on my device?

Use the 'contact us' form to shoot us a message and we will help you out. No worries. 

Why do you only cover the pronunciation for Warrior II?

The Sanskrit name for warrior is the same (Virabhadrasana) regardless. We just put a I, II, or III behind the name depending on the posture. Note: The postures themselves are very different, but the names are pronounced the same. 

Why use stick figures to illustrate postures? 

We use stick figures to illustrate each posture because each yogi's body is built differently - therefore we all modify the pose slightly to honor our own feelings. Our primary focus is to teach the name and pronunciation - not alignment. Stick figures should only be used as a reference.
