*Thank you for a wonderful and inspiring second module. I am using many of the techiniques for increasing strength in the neck , my clients and patients are amazed and relieved to be working on this subtle level and feeling the difference in their neck and in their body awareness. I am looking forward to module 3 and 4 and 5 and 6 and 7. But I will try to not ever leave the day before, it really felt like I was misssing a enormous amount of learning. !!!
Thank you again KS (Svastha Yoga Therapy participant)
*Ganesh, still can’t get over how much of what we learned in Chennai helped my back….one of my students in class last night (home from college), 20 yr. old who has uber flexible lower back/hips like me…she LOVED what I showed her about strengthening her lower back, totally understood why she needs to do that at her age NOW…. also looking forward to all remaining modules! yoga connects, yoga inspires…. 🙂

*Ganesh is knowledgeable, levelheaded, non prescriptive and with a good sense of humor. The course gives you the principles of yoga therapy. Like any skill this is something that has to be honed. Agneta Wiberg (Sweden)
