Introduction to Sanskrit: The American Sanskrit Institute’s Weekend Immersion
Aug 9, 2019| $250
3-Day Workshop with Claudette Evans
So perfectly refined, Sanskrit is the language of yoga. Anyone can resonate with Sanskrit’s timeless sounds—and connect to words and ideas incredibly beautiful and profound.
The rewards are many for those who take the time to see, hear and feel the power and elegance of Sanskrit. Those interested in yoga philosophys particularly benefit from this study.
This weekend workshop will give you an intimate familiarity with the unique points of resonance in your own palate that support Sanskrit’s sacred sounds, so that you’ll be firmly grounded in proper pronunciation of this ancient language. Along the way you’ll learn the alphabet—itself a lovely chant—and you’ll receive the tools you need to explore your favorite sutras and chants in the beautiful script of Sanskrit, Devanagari.
ASI’s teaching method, developed over many years by Vyaas Houston, makes learning Sanskrit stress-free and FUN!
