WHAT OUR FRIENDS SAY

Thank you very much for this course. I found it inspiring and heart-moving. I felt the lessons coming from the heart as well as from the brain.

10/10. Pitched at a perfect level. Having dabbled in yoga for 25 years and having read most of the texts discussed here I feel I only now understand it all fully. Many ‘aha!’ moments as the pieces of the puzzle fell together. Something that will make me a better practitioner and a more confident teacher.

This course has been incredibly informative and has opened my eyes to a new and vast subject to focus upon for my studies in Hinduism. The selection of content was perfect and I certainly aim to continue these studies on my own.

The tutor is truly an ocean of knowledge and I was impressed by his command of Sanskrit. In a nutshell a very intensive course with many perspectives.
