Coming from Yoga teacher background, I had some idea what to expect as I have been exposed to Ayurvedic principles in my Yoga training. The truth is there were so much more depth and richness I could ever imagine. The actual Ayurvedic science has surprised me with its truly scientific base. My initial attraction was more to the consciousness aspect of Ayurveda. How beautiful to see the perfect merging and application of both! I have learned so much and I have definitely opened my mind beyond my comfort zone, without a doubt. I am grateful for that.
Not only my mind became more open, but also my heart experienced an undeniable shift. Having a teacher such as Denise-Yashoda, meant being fully enveloped by unconditional love and acceptance each time we met in class. Her presentation of Ayurvedic teachings was infused with devotion and reverence as well as deep understanding of the principles, methods, and applications. To me, personally, it was Denise’s presence that made the entire journey so special. I also recognize and cherish the contribution of each of my classmates to the truly transforming experience.
If you are interested in Ayurveda, this may be helpful to you: There may be a number of competent schools you can learn Ayurveda. However, what I found out, in this school you don’t just learn Ayurveda, you LIVE Ayurveda. With a heartfelt gratitude to my teacher, Denise-Yashoda. Namaste, Sabina Ati Sundari.
