Recommendations:

This course has been utterly transformational, and deeply rewarding, too. I feel so lucky to have encountered such an authentic, graceful and inspiring Sanskrit teacher in Lucy!

From the very first class, I knew this course was something special, and as it unfolded week after week, it's long-ranging effects began to become increasingly apparent.

Each week, my understanding of this beautiful language deepened, and the bi-weekly calls invariably left me feeling inspired, activated and empowered to dive into the study of these sounds and letters with humility and burgeoning confidence.

What I have learned from this course reaches far beyond simply understanding a new alphabet or being able to read a script different from my native language. The application of the teachings and the completion of homework assignments has actually served to act almost as an initiatory journey into the infinite world of sound and symbol.

Thank you Lucy, this course has  taught me so much. I believe it's helped me to find a sense of peace within me that I didn't have before. The sounds feel very primordial and resonate with a deep sense of one's inner being. It's like "Wow" this is what's been missing from my life! Now I've found it I don't want to let it go. I want to keep learning more and immersing my soul in these beautiful sounds. 

Thank you Lucy, you've opened my eyes, my heart; my essence to something profoundly special and deeply powerful.

I’m enjoying the on-line Sanskrit course immensely: it is making a huge difference to my Yoga Sutra chanting, and it’s fun to share some of the insights with my yoga students, who seem to love to chant (and hear chanting). The course has inspired me to look more deeply into the roots of Sanskrit and yoga , which has been amazingly rewarding. Your teaching is wonderful. You exude true love and curiosity for your journey, which is infectious! I can’t wait for the next session in September!

It's been so wonderful learning sanskrit, it's a beautiful language so intricately woven together with the essence of all the elements, really special and quite magical.  Thank you so much for teaching and sharing this in such a way that made it simple to digest.

Look forward to whats to come!
