A GLOSSARY OF 108 YOGIC TERMS
When starting yoga it can be quite intimidating to go to yoga class and feel like “Am I the only one not getting this?” “What does asana, Surya Namaskar, bandhas actually mean?” Everything is new when you embark your journey with yoga, especially when the terms are in Sanskrit. That’s why I am so grateful that you are here and have found my list of  108 yogic terms.
