Swami and Padmasri are knowledgeable and effective teachers with kind hearts. I am learning details about how to practice and teach a variety of new asanas, and learning as well how to deepen my meditation practice. The program is exceeding my expectations. — Nora B. May
Swami Asokananda makes me feel comfortable. I am completely engaged in his lectures. He is calm and concise yet humorous and light. I really really love to practice with him and see just how the asanas evolve. It allows me to see where my work is and how to find my way within my practice. — Melissa Maji Bowles
Padmasri is genuinely kind, warm, and caring. She is very knowledgeable, and like Swamiji, very humble. She makes everyone feel heard when they speak. I am especially grateful for her Ayurveda and anatomy insight. I didn’t love learning about anatomy in Level 1 but I love learning it now, and it’s all thanks to Padmasri. Her Hatha class this morning was my favorite one so far. — Leila Hegazy
