Testimonials from a Pranayama Workshop

“Becoming aware of my breathing helped me understand how shallow it was. Anu not only taught me how to breathe right but also helped me understand how breathing affected my well-being. Simple exercises, which just take a few minutes are now a new routine which I wake up to every morning. The effort is more than gratifying.”

– Reena Bhanotha, London UK

“Had the privilege to attend Anu’s pranayama workshop. Two things I loved about the workshop. One, her precise instructions which helped me do the breathing exercises correctly which is most important for any pranayama practice. And two, she explained the dynamics of breathing and the benefits of pranayama. Awareness was the game changer for me.”

– Preeti Dawane, Mumbai India

“Anu’s style of teaching is very pleasant and most importantly the explanation and the science of the methods is simplified. I have tried pranayama with the other yoga teachers too but practicing with Anu made me realise yoga is for everyone. Simply following the teacher versus understanding the concept is what I loved about the workshop.”

– Geeta Shah, New Jersery, USA

“I manage a very hectic daily schedule. The pranayama workshop helped me both physically and psychologically.”

– Manish Dalvi, Mumbai India
