#6 Why Mantra Matters with Manorama

Have you ever wondered how important it is to pronounce a Sanskrit mantra correctly? This episode will provide you with an answer, and give you a little insight into the importance of Sanskrit in yoga

I met our guest Manorama in 2011 when she came to teach the Sanskrit module at the Jivamukti Yoga Teacher Training. I also got to work with her while I was the web editor for Jivamukti from 2012-2018. She is the creator of the Sanskrit Studies Method and the Luminous Soul Method, and teaches Sanskrit privately and in group settings — online, in person and at yoga teacher trainings around the world.

This interview was recorded in Central Park in 2019, before the pandemic, while I was moving out of NYC and creating the Warrior One Podcast. The wisdom is evergreen, so I want to share it here with my new listeners. We also get to hear Manorama's beautiful chanting of three mantras, including the Gayatri Mantra.
