The sound of Sanskrit is recorded in exact detail in the Devanagari writing system. Consciously pronouncing those sounds can turn into a form of meditation. Grammar and words will provide you access to the yoga source texts and yoga terminology. You will quickly feel familiar with this terminology since Sanskrit is the oldest "child" of an assumed Indo-European original language.

Sanskrit pronunciation – Meditation. Precision. Lucidity.

The conscious articulation of Sanskrit words and texts can turn into a meditation on articulation and sound. As you increasingly master the correct pronunciation, mantras and slokas will reveal their lucid beauty. Especially as a yoga teacher, you will also gain greater precision with technical terms.

Transliteration - bring Sanskrit into a script you're familiar with

Transliteration means transferring the script of one writing system into the script of another. Make Sanskrit easy (simplified) and use diacritical marks to describe pronunciation (IAST, ISO15919) or type Sanskrit transliterations directly into your keyboard (Velthuis, ITRANS, Harvard-Kyoto, SPF1).
