Ellen Cull
Ellen Cull discovered her love of Sanskrit while studying Tantric yoga theory.  She learned to recite the Pratyabhījñahridayam, or The Heart of Recognition, using a CD.  Over time, as her pronunciation got more refined, she felt the energy of the sounds themselves and the way in which that energy carried and revealed the meaning of the text.  She took the ASI Sanskrit Level I workshop with Zoe Mai in 2013 and was hooked, both by the Sanskrit itself and by the ASI teaching method, which made it possible for her to immerse herself in the pure joy of the language without fear or expectations.  Since then, she has completed the American Sanskrit Institute teaching apprentice program.  She now teaches weekend workshops and a regular study group.  She continues her study of Sanskrit with the Yoga Sūtras of Patañjali, the Bhagavad Gītā, and the Upanishads with Zoe and through Vyaas Houston’s Study at Home courses.  For Ellen, the study of Sanskrit is itself a form of spiritual practice, adding another dimension to practice of asana, meditation, mantra repetition, and study of yoga theory.  She has her own consulting practice in organization development and group facilitation to federal government agencies and non-profit organizations.
