Allison Dennis - 500 E-RYT
My interest in Indian music and the Sanskrit language started in 2005 from my time completing 500 hours of Yoga Teacher Training at the Sivananda Ashram. My teacher Prem Sadasivananda helped to create a spark that then got ignited once I received a harmonium as a gift from a friend. I fumbled around with poor pronunciation until teachers helped me realize that the magic of the mantra is in precision, obviously I am still working on it, and am ever grateful to my teachers for their patience.
Once K. Sridhar began teaching me traditional Indian Music by way of the scales and the different talas (time signatures), well, the fire has been burning bright and steady for Indian music ever since.
