American Sanskrit Institute and ASI Teachers

The American Sanskrit Institute (ASI) was founded by Vyaas Houston, M.A., in 1989, with a vision of Sanskrit as a universal sacred language. Utilizing learning technology based on the theory and practice of yoga, ASI courses emphasize the ease and joy of learning Sanskrit through an immersion experience, the enjoyment of making the sounds, fluently reading the original Devanagari script, and directly reading, chanting and understanding sacred literature.
