Common Sanskrit Terms in Yoga- Correct Pronunciation

I have made a small tutorial about proper pronunciation in Sanskrit, regarding words which are often used in yoga classes. Nowadays teachers like to bring in some Sanskrit terms in the classes, whether it's the name of the posture, or any other concept they'd like to convey. Unfortunately, many a times the words are not pronounced correctly. Sanskrit language is very profound and proper pronunciation is extremely important, to make sure we convey what we have in mind. Even a small change in the sound can change the meaning of the word.

Therefore I have made this short video of two minutes, presenting ten words and their correct pronunciation.

Videos coming up soon: The 12 basic Sivananda Yoga Asanas pronunciation, Surya Namaskar and Surya Namaskar mantras!
