Perhaps you will find the American Sanskrit Institute suitable:

American Sanskrit Institute

"For right understanding of word and meaning, I honor the parents
of the universe, Parvati and Shiva, like word and meaning united."
                                                - Kaalidaas

Approached through the beauty and energy of spoken sound, Sanskrit
is accessible to all.  Knowledge of Sanskrit opens the doors to
universal wisdom, encoded in the original words of rishis -- Vedas,
Upanishads, Ramayana, Mahabharata, the Gita, Sutras, and the direct
teachings of Yoga and Ayurveda.  The study of Sanskrit is a yoga, a
spiritual practice, inspiring devotion while requiring total
one-pointedness.

The American Sanskrit Institute is directed by Vyaas Houston, M.A.
After teaching Sanskrit and Yoga for more than fifteen years, he
discovered in 1987 a powerful method for teaching Sanskrit based on
the yoga model of PATANJALI'S YOGA SUTRAS.  Through his work,
Sanskrit has become widely accessible in the West.  He studied
Sanskrit for twelve years with Shri Brahmananda Sarasvati and also
got his M.A. in Sanskrit at Columbia University.
