would like to find a pronunciation guide also. Is there one out there?


I find the site easy to use andvery informative. I built a therpeutic sequence and am studying the sanskrit names. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


I want to be able to do the crocodile how can I work up to this?


Sixty years is NOT too old to begin yoga. I took my first yoga class at age 59. I am more flexible and fitter than I was 20 years ago, thanks to yoga. Listen to you body and go for the modified poses when the full pose does not feel right.


I've been looking all over for a pronunciation guide myself! Whick syllable should be emphasized? How do the words sound phonetically?


I was wondering if you are older say 60 years old if that is too old to begin yoga for the first time?




I agree! A pronunciation guide would be great or even an audio recording of some key sounds. Thank you.


You have provided an appropriate meaning of Sanskrit words used to express yogasana in various forms.Thank you,Sir.

A pronunciation guide would be helpful, thanks! (especially which syllable gets the emphasis)
