By the end of this workshop, you'll be reading this, savoring the precise pronunciation and pure energy of Sanskrit,
and gaining direct access to the ancient wisdom encoded in this sacred language.

Enjoy a weekend of meditative immersion in learning the pronunciation and devanagari writing of the Sanskrit alphabet, combined with Bhumi’s special blend of yoga postures and pranayama breathing and affirmations to support the mind in heightened focus, and to open the chakras and energy in the body to absorb the vibrations of the language. A dynamic model of yoga in the classroom supporting effortless, natural focus, this weekend is an adventure into the beauty and energy of Sanskrit and Yoga.

Learning Sanskrit with Bhumi is fun and educational. You don't have to be a linguist; and you'll be amazed how logical and easy it can be when taught in this method.
