Here at YogaDownload.com, we love to help make yoga available to as many people as we can, all over the globe. This week, we are thrilled to introduce our first dedicated Spanish Language Yoga Program: Yoga en Español. According to the World Economic Forum, the world’s most spoken languages are Chinese, Spanish, and English. As of 2018, that means Spanish is the second most spoken language, by roughly 437 million people, primarily in Spain, Latin America, and parts of the United States.
Currently, most yoga classes are offered in English, Sanskrit, or some combination of the two. Many students find learning the Sanskrit names for the yoga asanas or postures to be a daunting challenge. Sanskrit isn’t a spoken language, only existing in written form, so it takes a great deal of memorization to learn the pose names.
If English isn’t your first language, practicing yoga can be even more challenging due to language barriers.
When you throw in touching your toes, or standing on your head, the obstacles to starting or advancing in a yoga practice can be steep. We can’t promise you’ll stand on your head anytime soon, but if you are one of the hundreds of millions of Spanish speakers, you’ll appreciate practicing in your native tongue. Also, if you are learning Spanish, practicing in the language is a great way to improve your comprehension skills.
Three expert Spanish language yoga teachers from different regions around the world, including Spain, Ecuador, and Mexico, will be your guides in this well-rounded program.
Whether you are a beginner or advanced practitioner, there’s plenty of variety so you’ll have a solid program of classes for your home library. You’ll have access to everything from Basic Yoga, Yin, Vinyasa flow, to deeper practices on the Bandhas, and even a Chakra meditation. Check it out today!
