The Stories and Language of Yoga

with Gopi Om

Have you ever wondered about the stories behind the pose names or had questions about the language used to describe yogic techniques and postures? What's the deal with Warrior? Who was the Tortoise? Why Cow-Faced Pose? What is the proper pronunciation and meaning of some of the commonly-used Sanskrit language? Why do we chant the OM? The names of yoga asanas and the language used within the practice often come from ancient texts and knowledge of these can change our understandings of the intention behind the pose itself. 

Saturday, March 4, 2:30-6:30pm


This is a seated discussion-style workshop where we’ll discover a deeper understanding of the language of the practice of yoga.

This workshop is in conjunction with Yoga Trek Teacher Training. Space is limited, register today!

Given the name Gopi Om by her guru (and Nicole by her parents), Gopi/Nicole believes that a yogic lifestyle enables a person to approach the more mundane aspects of life with a lighter heart and a more accepting attitude. She has been studying with Sri Dharma Mittra exclusively for the past several years, completing his first ever 800 hour training and traveling to assist him at workshops in the Midwest. She strives to live every moment as an offering to the divine and to pass on the teachings of yoga as they have been generously shared with her.
