Here are some testimonials from students’ journeys.

“This course has taught me how to see and how to feel. It has opened my mind and opened my heart. It has made me a better person and a better teacher. This course has changed my life. Thank you for being inspirational messengers of peace and harmony. I will always treasure this experience.” - Anne

“This course taught me that even though Vishva will always be my guru/teacher, I must always remember to consult my own self first – that I am my primary teacher within and I need to heed my own inner voice with regards to my health, lifestyle, boundaries, choices, etc. If I doubt my inner wisdom, then I disregard my truth. I feel confident now about the quality of the classes that I teach and I feel so much warmth about sharing further in the future. Even more, now, I believe that yoga makes the world a better place and brings out the best in all of us.” - Zoe

Your idea of World Yoga Family is so beautiful and I am thrilled to now be a part of it.  I have found so much peace at this training, and as your message for me said, I am going to expand that in all directions to everyone around me.  I have felt so much love and kindness from you this month which helped my journey immensely.  Shanti, Christina

Thank you for showing me your inner light so that I could find mine.  I will be seeing you again.  Thank you for your stillness and peace.  I am taking it with me as I embark on a new life.  Love, Dorinda

My first time in class was so scary, so I didn’t look you in the eye.  I quickly found out that you are so humble, loving and even quirky.  I will forever remember playing kabadi outside watching you prance around like a big kid.  I appreciate knowing that it is all right to be playful, to love strangers and that I can use my fire inside for love.  I anticipate meeting you again someday.  Thank you!  Jackie

Vishva ji!  What a beautiful family tree you are growing.  Yoga is our root, you are the trunk and we are the branches.  Thank you for being such a loving, blissful extension of my family.  Your space within me will continue to grow and we will share, laugh, sing, dance, discuss, smile and enjoy stillness and peace together for a long, long time.  I am grateful, my teacher!  Om Shanti, Olivia

Thank you for everything!  Your stories make me smile! Your light inspires me; your wisdom makes my brain happy, and your love overflows and fills me with happiness and joy.  Lisa

I really can’t express how grateful and happy I am to have been a part of this training.  I have learned so much more about myself and you have opened those doors of knowledge and wisdom that I had shut.  I sincerely appreciate your kind and loving nature, and will always keep you in my heart.  You are so wise; I honour the way you spread your knowledge and light.  Om Shanti, Laura

I believe that everything happens for a reason, and spending the last 4 weeks with you and Prem has been one of the best experiences of my life.  I will continue to learn and grow.  I had to wade through some muddy waters, but I think that it is finally starting to clear, so thank you for your kindness, love and acceptance.  Your smile and your laugh will always bring joy to my heart.  Love Lindsey

You have inspired me to want to be stronger, wiser, a better family member, a better friend, more patient, and more attentive to my and other people’s emotions.  You are truly an example of what it means to be a great teacher.  I know you will continue to inspire others and grow and I aspire to that.  “Unless the eye is opened there is nothing to learn”  Om Shanti, Carolyn
