Sanskrit Asana Names

right pronunciation of the Sanskrit Asana Names
.

You might notice that the last "a" in Asana is silent. This is the traditional way of pronunciation. It might sound unusual at the beginning because the wrong pronunciation of Sanksrit terms is quite widespread in the Western world. Let's correct this common mistake together. You are very welcome to use this glossary for practising your pronunciation.
