A recognized leader in the field of Sanskrit and yoga, Manorama tours internationally to train students in the Path of Luminous Shabda. Luminous Shabda brings meditation, Sanskrit, and yoga philosophy together to bridge sacred teachings into everyday life for the purpose of self-fulfillment and authentic happiness.
Manorama is committed to affecting the world in a positive way through Sanskrit and conscious living. “Sanskrit is the living language of yoga and mantra. It is a language of awareness and pranic intention. Sanskrit linguistically and vibrationally expresses our deepest core. The elegant sounds of Sanskrit gently coax our hearts to soar to their highest potential, the luminous whole that we all are,” she says.
Manorama’s mix of earthy charm, deep scholarship, and humorous teaching style are born from years of close study with her Guru, Shri Brahmananda Sarasvati (Rammurti S. Mishra, MD), the founder of Ananda Ashram. A graduate of Columbia University, Manorama has released numerous CDs, including the acclaimed Learn to Pronounce Yoga Poses. She is also author of Thread of Wisdom Yoga Pearls vol 1.
