Course description

In this 12-hour weekend immersion we will explore the five points of resonance, rhythm and breath of the Sanskrit language and learning to read simple words in devanagari with a color-coded chart and melodious chanting of the alphabet.

This interactive call-and-response format provides all participants with opportunity to practice with the group while muted and also unmute individually for instant confirmation from the instructor. We will be reciting the entire alphabet with clarity and precision and reading simple words by the end of the weekend!
