“I am a calgary, AB, Canada businesswoman simultaneously running a business and raising 2 daughters with my utmost dedication.I went to India last November wishing to deepen my yoga practice and I felt going to the roots of yoga: India was all indicated. Vinay was my personal yoga guru for 10 days. As a north American fast-paced citizen, I arrived to Vinay, ready to ‘perform’ yoga, challenge my body to the utmost pretzel postures! Vinay ‘read’ me in a minute. We sat down and he talked to me about the real purpose and meaning of yoga. We looked at old Sanskrit yoga books. Vinay taught me to breath. His warm presence made me feel welcome right away. Vinay is fully present. Vinay is very knowledgeable, he lives yoga. His authentic smile, care and devotion to give me the best teachings have given me not only yoga knowledge but life tools and awareness. I highly recommend vinay to you. If I had to choose, I would choose him again without hesitation. He is gifted for happiness and I think he is simply an incredible human being. he saw the light in me and brought clarity to my life. I now cannot live without yoga. I will go back to India just to practice with him. I haven’t lost touch with him since I’m back, he inquires about how my practice has evolved, chat about our families, and life challenges.”

“Greatful is the best way to express my experience at Jeevmoksha Yoga Gurukul. What a great opportunity to get to study yoga in Rishikesh and specifically at Jeevmoksha. The class size allowed each of us to work on some of our own interests and difficulties. Also small class size allowed each of to teach a full 90 minute class as well as micro lessons. You think you know what you’re going to say and do, but its more challenging than it seems. We had the opportunity to get to know the teachers adn learn about modern Indian culture in addition to studying the historic. It gave us a chance to live a simple yogic lifestyle with good food and time for reflection. Even though it was a quiet life, it seems something exciting happens everyday. The monkeys provided entertainment by interrupting our asana class, stealing my breakfast one morning and using my fresh laundry as a washcloth. Another, sitting in lecture and seeing a baby monkey peeking in, is one of the sights i won’t forget. Visiting temples where Hare Krishna Hare Rama has been chanted continously for decades gives a new insight into the meaning of devotion. Asana pracitse on the Ganga beach was a beautiful setting. All in all a month at Jeevmoksha yoga gurukul was a magical part of the journey that is Yoga. Namaste

“It’s so peaceful here, I feel blessed to be in nature. When I walk up the stairs to the yoga studio before morning practice, the view takes my breath away. I like to meditate on the sounds the birds make. I’m really learning something of the way my mind is … sometimes it’s all over the place. With no TV, radio, work, or other distractions, and all that practice, I get to see all the crazy thoughts I have, all the mental projections. And very occasional micro-glimpses of stillness. I guess the first thing is awareness. I don’t have to make any decisions, don’t have to work, don’t have to decide what to eat. All I have to do is turn up for practice and practice with awareness. Everything else is taken care of. No distractions. It feels far away from the real world. Maybe I don’t want to be in the real world?
