Marcy Braverman Goldstein

Upon encountering Sanskrit twenty years ago, Marcy Braverman Goldstein, Ph.D. was riveted by its mellifluous sound and intricate grammar.  Drawing from doctoral training at the University of California, Santa Barbara, tutorials with Dr. B.N. Pandit in New Delhi, and twenty years of practicing yoga, Marcy has taught in various educational settings for over 15 years.  Previously at Davidson College and currently at UNC Charlotte, she teaches Asian religions classes including her favorite course, an historical study of yoga traditions from 2500 B.C.E. to the ever-changing modern moment.  At yoga studios and conferences nationally, and frequently as part of teacher training programs, she leads workshops that focus on Sanskrit.  She is Adjunct Faculty at Rasika Yoga School and on the Subtle Yoga team of teachers.  Marcy’s passion and goal is to help people discover the fascinating linguistic foundation of yoga.
