Karuna Yoga Vidya Peetham Student’s Review on Course Curriculum and Teaching Standards
I emphatically recommend Karuna Yoga Vidya Peetham to anyone who is interested in doing a course for either yoga therapy or to gain a deeper and broader understanding of yoga in general. The sheer knowledge, professionalism and expertise of Karuna always made me feel like I was in good hands. After talking to other yoga practitioners, hearing their negative experiences, I knew by comparison that I had found the right place, something I naturally had apprehensions about before arriving.
The program is well organized and I formed close friendships with everybody in my group. The compassion and special guidance that I was able to receive from the teacher has been invaluable in helping me to appreciate the deeper aspects of yoga and to understand it within the context of Indian culture. It is this personal interaction with the teacher, who truly does lead by example, that has helped me to understand what it means to live a yogic lifestyle.
In terms of asana practice, Karuna is nothing short of a wizard at getting both beginners and advanced students safely and comfortably into positions which they might otherwise think impossible. In the short month I was here, I had several breakthroughs and made progress on every front with my practice of yoga. I now feel confident that I can go further on my own am looking forward to reaching more advanced stages using the knowledge that I have learned here at Karuna Yoga. Even if you are a beginner, it is good to join and practice in the advanced class up to your ability. Everybody is challenging themselves and working on something. The supportive group energy in that lesson is tangible and exciting.
Thank you Karuna for everything! I will definitely be back to learn more from you in the future.
