Claudette is a self-described yoga nerd and came to Sanskrit through of her love of singing, chanting and yoga philosophy.

She now studies with Zoe Mai, and completed the ASI Apprenticeship Program with her in October 2014. Claudette enjoys chanting and studying classic texts, like the Bhagavad Gita and the Yoga Sutras of Patañjali, and the grammar and philosophy found within.
