EMBODIED SANSKRIT: "SEEDS OF EXPERIENCE" WORKSHOP WITH TIFFANY THORNE
A one day dive into the language most associated with yoga lead by our faculty member, Sankritist and Scaravelli-inspired teacher Tiffany Thorne. "Seeds of Experience" is the beginning of your journey into the embodiment of sound and its evolution into the language of yoga.

Discover your voice, unlock your authentic self-expression, and experience the power and alignment of the Yoga of Sound.

Learn to pronounce Sanskrit sounds with awareness of the loci of sound production
Access and align the subtle body using sound including the bija mantras associated with the chakras
Understand the embodied philosophy of yoga underlying the Sanskrit language and gain a cultural appreciation of the importance of sound and voice in the history of the language

WITH TIFFANY THORNE
Sanskrit BA, MA-Phil (Cambridge) DipBWY
Tiffany has been working with Scaravelli-inspired practices for twenty years although her whole life seems to have been lived around yoga: born to an Iyengar yoga teacher and starting classes at twelve, she developed an early and unusual interest in yoga philosophy and studied it for twelve years at the University of Cambridge. With this grounding in Sanskrit that she continues to explore technically and creatively, she trained to become a Scaravelli-inspired yoga teacher.
