Sanskrit and Chanting Class     6:30-8pm

$20

One of the most beautiful languages to emerge out of India, Sanskrit is a language which was developed and refined over thousands of years to produce sounds that elevate the human spirit. When brought to life through chanting, Sanskrit can be used as a powerful tool of transformation and healing. In these classes at Sticks and Stones Farm, we will discover the five mouth positions where the Sanskrit sounds are produced while learning correct Sanskrit pronunciation.

We will chant verses and aphorisms from the vast literature of the Sanskrit language, including the Vedas, Upanishads, Yoga Sutra, the Bhagavad Gita, and other beloved texts and poetry. Join us for this unique learning experience!

 

Leslie Dillingham Freyberg, through her love of Sanskrit and infectious sense of humor, has earned the reputation of leading engaging and meaningful courses in Sanskrit and chanting. A Certified Iyengar Yoga teacher, Leslie began her Sanskrit studies with the American Sanskrit Institute. She studies the art of Vedic Chanting with Sonia Nelson at the Vedic Chant Center in Santa Fe, NM. Leslie continues her Sanskrit education with Nicolai Bachman , Dr. Ram Karan Sharma, and Dr. Y.N Rao of Hyderabad, India. She also serves on the teacher training faculty of Patricia Walden’s BKS Iyengar Yoga Mala of Boston.
