#4 Don't Forget Vasisthasana with Frances Vicente

Vasisthasana (वसिष्ठासन vasiṣṭhāsana) is the Sanskrit name for side plank pose, and it turns out lots of us yoga teachers mispronounce it.

Today's guest is Frances Vicente, an advanced certified Jivamukti Yoga teacher who lives and teaches in Montreal. Derek met Frances at the 2011 Jivamukti Yoga Teacher Training, and they have been friends ever since. Frances most recently completed a Sanskrit Teacher Training through the American Sanskrit Institute.

We explore the correct pronunciation of Vasisthasana, and learn about the sage Vasistha who the pose is named after. Includes mnemonics to help remember how to pronounce the pose name, and why the sage Vasistha is a great eponym for a pose that works on two sides (another mnemonic!)
