Yoga Asanas Sanskrit NamesYoga Asanas Sanskrit Names : Sanskrit is the classical Indian language still used in yoga asanas to define poses and practices.
The names of yoga asanas are most commonly from four categories: anatomy; animals; sages and deities; and objects.
Additionally, names of poses are further broken down into numbers and characteristics of the pose.Just about all yoga poses end with the suffix ‘asana’ which means ‘pose’.
If the yoga pose is named after nature it is necessary to know all the different parts of nature to know the name of the yoga pose.
‘Vrksa’ means ‘tree’, so ‘vrksasana’ translates as ‘tree pose’, and ‘baka’ means ‘crane’, hence ‘crane pose’.
Similarly it is necessary to know the Indian sage names to know the yoga poses designated in their honour.
