“Intro to Sanskrit is an immersion into to the Sanskrit alphabet and gives students the ability to work confidently with mantras and to integrate yogic principles into their practice and life.” ~ Manorama


As a Sanskrit, Meditation and Yoga Philosophy teacher for over 30 years, my mission is grounded in making this Tradition accessible, approachable, and fun, while honoring the richness of its vast wisdom.

My formative studies began as an immersive study with my Guru, Shri Brahmananda Sarasvati, in Sanskrit, Meditation and Yoga philosophy. Later, I continued my work in Sanskrit at Columbia University with the esteemed Dr. Ram Karan Sharma. The combination of these uniquely vibrant experiences honed my understanding of the Sanskrit language and gave me the confidence to delve deeper into how Sanskrit relates with the primary principles of Yoga, as well as to explore its connection with modern life.
