Sanskrit grammar offers a beautifully clear structure as was recognized over 2,500 years ago. Every sound in Sanskrit produces a powerful vibration. When combined with other sounds they produce specific words and phrases. In this course, you will learn the entire Sanskrit alphabet in conjunction with sources such as the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, the Bhagavad Gita, and mantras and verses from other traditional Sanskrit texts. Participants will explore the resonance of their own voice and leave feeling confident and empowered to chant in sanskrit with confidence.

Leslie Freyberg is a unique teacher. Her method of clear explanation followed by listen and repeat makes Sanskrit chanting simple to learn, in person or using one of her audio recordings. As a member of the faculty of the American Sanskrit Institute, Leslie travels nationwide under its auspices to teach the foundation of the Sanskrit language, an indispensable component for the serious study of yoga. Leslie is a certified Iyengar teacher. She teaches the Iyengar method of asana and pranayama as well as Sanskrit and Vedic chanting in her hometown of Redding and in Ridgefield, CT. She serves on the faculties of Patricia Walden’s Iyengar teacher training, the Iyengar Yoga Institute in New York City, and at the Yoga Shala of Georgetown, CT.
