Chanting and writing the Sanskrit alphabet is a powerful tool and contemplative practice. In this workshop we will explore and practice chanting the alphabet using 5 mouth positions with a focus on producing precise sounds. You will also learn Devangari - the written script, and how to use it as a form of Likhita Japa - written repetition of a mantra as a meditation. Simple stretching breaks will be included. Please bring a notebook and a felt tipped pen.
