INTRO TO SANSKRIT SERIES
Learn the language of yoga with Geeta Tiwari. We will start with the basic sounds and letters of the language called Devanagari (the abode of goddesses & gods).
This class requires a 6-week commitment and payment for the full course in advance. I strongly encourage people to try to come for Chanting sessions every Monday morning from 10:30 to noon (This is a donation class - ADD link to this here). This will greatly help in familiarizing our minds with the sounds and meanings of this amazing mother language.
1. Introduction to Sanskrit Vol 1 by Thomas Egenes (there is also a Vol 2, both are freely available online in pdf format; a printed copy is easier to work with),
2. A dedicated notebook
3. Time for practice outside class (this is more fun and easier with your student group)
INTERMEDIATE SANSKRIT SERIES
This class is for those who have completed the Intro to Sanskrit Series and will work progressively. Having learned Devanagari we will start to learn fundamentals of grammar along with vocabulary and basic chants.
Students will need to sign up for minimum 6 classes and dedicate some time daily at home for practice. "The journey of learning this language has been the most life changing experience for me other than motherhood. Both of these journeys have opened my mind in fundamental ways and made me a better human." - Geetanjali Tiwari (Geeta)
