" I have worked in the emergency department for 8 years. Because of stressful work, I have an imbalance of my autonomic nervous system(ANS). According to the heart rate variability monitoring, my ANS revealed a predominance of my sympathetic system. I also had palpitation, insomnia, stiffness, etc. Fortunately, I had the chance to learn yoga relaxation through Vasanthi's student since April, 2011. Now, my symptoms have reduced and my ANS is more balanced. In November, 2011, I attended the Yoga Teacher Training (with an introduction to Ayurveda) conducted by Vasanthi. She is a great teacher. She teaches all the knowledge of Yoga and Ayurveda and many cleansing skills. Her teaching style is creative. We can ask all kinds of questions, and she will answer as possible as she can. In addition, she has a huge enthusiasm for yoga and Ayurveda research. I believe if I follow her foot steps and practice persistently, I can become an excellent yoga teacher like her. Thanks to Vasanthi!"

"Vasanthi has a wonderful gentle energy about her and when she teaches her passion is contagious!! The "Stress Management" technique she teaches is very beneficial and the manner in which she teaches it is both informative & inspiring!"

"I participated in Vasanthi's Stress Management course as part of SVYASA YIC course nr. 111 in January 2011 in Bangalore, India. Vasanthi is a highly engaged teacher. When she was among us, she was really "here". And technically very precise; easily projecting the right mood for the exercises. She was open for questions and supportive for the people asking. She was honestly interested in the people. She showed real interest to explore what people were asking her or wanted to discuss. She did not avoid critical questions. She gave a lot of energy to the group. She let us see some of her spontaneity and creativity. Altogether she was supportive to the whole learning process of the group."

"Vasanthi is very pleasant, patient and understanding. She will go the extra mile to make sure we learn the correct technique and avoid injury. She takes an interest in knowing us. Thank you very much. I will be healthier in Yoga."

"Vasanthi is an intuitive, gifted Yoga practioner who is passionate about her art and it is evident from the level of dedication and importance her students give to her classes. She was running Yoga classes for staff and I must honestly say it was the best series of Yoga sessions I have ever had! She was able to adjust the lessons to suit every different type of fitness level and so we weren't left in aches and pains at the end of the class. In addition, the meditation "cool down" session was a hit– and even we missed the 1st half of the class, we were determined not to miss the 2nd session because we were led into a guided relaxation meditation that left us all feeling so refreshed and recharged to take on another stressful day!"
Natasha Raina, Singapore
"Vasanthi is an excellent teacher. I was taught Stress Management by her and had the good luck to hear one of her Ayurveda presentations. I love the passion with which she teaches and the passion for the subjects that she teaches. This passion immediately passed over to me. It is a pleasure to learn from her wonderful female personality. Her Stress Management classes were soft and relaxing, helped me to calm down the mind and to simply enjoy myself. Vasanthi was very patient with all of us students, always willing to answer questions and has the gift to explain things in a way so that everyone understands it easily."
Marion Bergmueller, Austria
" I like the idea of yoga but getting myself to a place where I can slow down and benefit and enjoy yoga takes a good yoga teacher. Someone who can tune in to the level where I, the student, is at and make it simple for me. This is how I experienced my yoga classes with Vasanthi. I would come away from a class looking forward to practicing what I had been shown and eager for my next yoga class. Lots of fun. Thanks Vasanthi!"
Cecilia Burley, Gold Coast, Australia
"I am a yoga teacher who graduated from Sivananda Yoga Center and Svyasa Yoga Research Institute and I have been teaching Yoga in Kenya (Africa). Vasanthi visited Nairobi Kenya in 1998 and taught my students. I observed her teaching and was very impressed with her. She is an expert Yoga instructor who is able to tailor her classes to meet exactly the needs and abilities of students at all levels. I would strongly recommend her to any students wanting to learn yoga."
