Introduction to Sanskrit

INTRODUCTION TO SANSKRIT
Friday, October 6 – Sunday, October 8, 2017 6:30pm

PERFECTLY REFINED, Sanskrit is the language of yoga. Anyone can resonate with Sanskrit's timeless sounds -- and connect to words and ideas beautiful and profound.

REWARDS ARE MANY for those who take the time to see hear and feel the power and elegance of Sanskrit. Those interested in yoga philosophy particularly benefit from this study.

Join Kamala (Luana) Knowlton, for this weekend workshop that will give you intimate familiarity with the unique points of resonance in your own palate that support Sanskrit's sacred sounds. And 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. American Sanskrit Institute's teaching method, developed over many years by Vyaas Houston, makes learning Sanskrit stress-free and FUN! In this workshop you will:

Learn the Alphabet in Devanagari with detailed explanation for each letter
Learn to read words in Devanagari with just consonants and using vowel abbreviations
Learn/chant the vowel abbreviations
Write your name in Devanagari (time permitting)
All learning materials are provided by the American Sanskrit Institute

Students will receive a certificate of completion for 14 contact hours for completing Level I of the ASI training. The hours also count as 14 Yoga Alliance Continuing Education credits.    https://www.yogavie.org/events/introtosanskrit
