I truly was lost before I came [to your class], and though I must take credit for my own change—still, it was only with the information and insightfulness that you provided that I was able to make that change. — Past Participant
I took your workshop three weeks ago at Integral Yoga. I wanted to let you know that I religiously did all the exercises you gave us for the first two weeks [after the program], and I felt so much calmer, more relaxed, and happier. I learned how to breathe properly, and my husband was amazed at the difference it made. I think my daughter felt it, too. We get along so much better since I don’t get so irritable anymore. Some days I don’t feel perfect but I still feel much better than before I started doing this routine. Thank you very much for sharing your wisdom and experience with me. — Angela
I finally got tools to deal with my anxiety instead of simply being analyzed about why I might feel anxious. — Maggie DuMont
Boris has shaped the way I see anxiety and OCD. Most importantly he gave a “DSM disorder” a human face and a living heart. I will meet every client with this view and thank him each time for the teaching. — Past Participant
