Every sound in the Sanskrit language produces a powerful vibration which, when combined with other sounds to produce specific words and phrases, bestows nourishment to the one who chants, as well as to the listener. Sanskrit’s unique power and beauty reflect the great importance that sound had to the ancient sages.

Claudette Evans, instructor

Knowledge of Sanskrit makes it possible to grasp the subtleties of yoga, ayurveda, and jyotish, whose teachings are written in Sanskrit. Since ancient times the practice of the vedic sciences has included the study of Sanskrit and the chanting of Sanskrit mantras to induce calm and clarity in meditation. Sanskrit is integral to yoga meditation and its pure sounds essential for harmonizing and balancing the mind.

This Sanskrit Training will teach you how to approach the language of yoga as a yoga that is both enjoyable and inspiring. The first step in learning Sanskrit is to develop an intimacy with its sounds; become familiar with their exact location, feeling their force and power, and the unique way they vibrate the palate and engage the breath. Above all, enjoying sound is at the heart of our program.

This Sanskrit Training is an educational adventure that will give you a permanent connection to the beauty and energy of Sanskrit as well as a dynamic model of yoga in the classroom that supports a natural and effortless focus.
