Cynthia Snodgrass
[Rev. Dr.] Cynthia Snodgrass, Episcopal minister and chaplain, has studied Sanskrit and Vedic Sanskrit at Harvard, and has received her PhD from the University of Stirling, Scotland. Further, she has found a deeper, more immediate love for Sanskrit through personal studies begun in the early 1990s with Shri Karunamayee of the Shri Aurobindo Ashram in Delhi, and especially through extensive study with Vyaas Houston of American Sanskrit Institute. Through direct experience and expression, Sanskrit was transformed from being dead symbols on a page into being live, resounding conveyors of truth. As Vyaas chanted each letter one after the other, the sounds emanated into beautiful life-forms like remotely-transmitted radio waves, revealing universal connections.  Initiating what has now become a model for today's Sanskrit teachers, ASI's approach to teaching Sanskrit was playful and compassionate. Yogic in and of itself, the method allowed the chanting to open a direct way to self.  Cynthia now lives in Gainesville, FL. She is a certified teacher of IYT and Medical Meditation with Therapeutic-Yoga, and she has produced the CDs: Essential Sanskrit: I. Yoga Posture Pronunciation;     II. Prayers & Invocations and Dream Chants.       She enjoys teaching with ASI, sharing the voicing of Sanskrit, which provides such beauty and truth, such awareness and joy.
