What do our students say:

I really enjoy Harilalji’s classes when the birds sing with you in the morning and in my garden at the same time. A wonderful atmosphere for pranayama and meditation. I benefit greatly from pranayama as Harilalji teaches it. I find the visualizations and affirmations very helpful. The subtle channalising deepens my perception. I find this practice more physically relaxed and feel a deeper effect as a result. (Birgit, Germany)

Dear Harilal and Meera,
I do agree with the other fellow students this course was wonderful. There are hardly any more words left to express the value of what I have learned and experienced last month during the course.
It gave me such more insight in the techniques and philosophy of Pranayama since I took my TTC in 2011. The practices were given with more subtleness and gentleness and they brought me to a much deeper and subtle plan. (Henriette, Netherlands)

Dear Meera and Harilalji, it is always such a pleasure to be with you personally and also virtually! when i hear your voices and also the background sounds of the Ashram like animals and even the voices of the election campaign I feel like being home. Before the course I thought I might not be able properly and I also in some weeks don’t come to practice alone much but still I feel so much more focused and calm with the practice and I’m looking forward to go on from here with meditation the next weeks. (Tina, Austria)

Thank you so much Hari. This was a first, being in a course with you and I have had a wonderful experience. I love the insights that you share in each class..things which help us become more aware of ourselves and our own practice and also of our students. The guidance is also very specific, gentle and spot on. It helped me figure out how to adjust the practice to my needs and move forward despite my challenges. I’m looking forward to the meditation course. Meera thanks for all your help too. (Aparna, India)
