Sanskrit Fundamentals with Shelley ONLINE/DROPBOX 

The Sanskrit Alphabet creates a resonance within our nervous system that calibrates us to experience the deeper dimensions of connection. Each phenome is a building block of reality. When used with precision they can create new vibratory patterns within us that transform our systems from the inside out. This ancient technology is a direct way to remember our Source, and to tap into the Divine. With Sanskrit, we enter into the field of sonic resonance of the deity. In this case with the Alphabet; The Mother. She is the supporting ground which surrounds us all. The Alphabet is a tool to experience and integrate Her sonically within our Being.

Learn the fundamentals of Sanskrit pronunciation by learning the specifics of the 50 phenomes of the Alphabet and how it relates to our subtle body.

*This class is the pre-requisite for any other drop-in

pronunciation class*

Dropbox Folder link given after purchase

5 hours of video & audio recordings,

documents, and practice recordings



In this introductory course we will discuss and practice:

- Student-teacher Vedic Invocation (with meter)

-Sarasvati mantra

-Sanskrit Alphabet in detail (including an 'Alphabet song')



Just like yoga asana, it is not necessary to have perfect alignment to experience the benefits from the poses. With Sanskrit chanting we don't need to have perfect pronunciation, or even good pronunciation to experience the benefits of the vibrations. However, with refinement of our pronunciation, we can broaden our experience and expand our tool box of integrative methods.

This is a pre-recorded class.The audio and the video files will be available for download onto your DropBox account or your chosen device for use of your personal reference.

If you are an RYT with Yoga Alliance, you may receive 5 CEU's for this class.
