Jo Brill
Jo Brill was first captivated by the beauty of Sanskrit words and concepts when training as a yoga teacher. Seeking a direct connection to meaning, she began her study with Vyaas in 2006, quickly finding expanded delight in familiar chants and texts. Now, Jo especially enjoys helping others discover their own ability to resonate with timeless sounds and to understand classic texts with precision. She has led workshops across the country on topics ranging from sound and chant in yoga to the formal grammar of Sanskrit.
Now working toward her doctorate at the University of Chicago, Jo recently spent a wonderful year at the University of Oxford, where she earned a master's degree in Sanskrit, with distinction. She earlier studied Advanced Sanskrit at Columbia University. Jo has practiced yoga for 20 years under the guidance of Mia Azcue. She is a certified yoga teacher. More at
