"Training with Bhavani was a gift. Her great knowledge is passed on with a voice that allows you to relate to the teachings with understanding of philosophy, yogic fundamentals and passion. Learning how to dive into your truest self you are welcomed into a family. The intelligence given in the asana classes demonstrated a building of sequencing and variations on poses teaching you how to make yoga available for every body. I am grateful for this knowledge that I have been gifted to pass along to now my students. Bhavani creates a graspable program on philosophy. Giving in depth knowledge on sutra and culture. Whether you want to teach or dive deeper into your personal practice, she will open you up and welcome you into a family that will always be with you."

increase my knowledge of asana, as well as myself."

Thank you sounds so small compared to the gratitude I feel in my heart!"
"It would be hard to overstate the lifeline that the yoga sutra mentorship has been for me during the past year and a half. What a source of fellowship, enlightenment and what a powerful underpinning for a physical yoga practice. I’m not really sure how I got by before, without the sutras reverberating in me and more-or-less on the tip of my tongue. I find myself saying “There’s a sutra for that!” with the same happy incredulity that people use for “There’s an app for that!” The bottom line is that the sutras are useful and life-giving. I deeply appreciate Bhavani's opening them up to us with so much heart, humor and insight." - Andrea D., San Francisco, CA
"Bhavani's teachings of the Yoga Sūtra have profoundly impacted my life and supported me through a time of great transition. I’ve had the great opportunity to study her advanced teaching with her both in person in Kauai, in workshops in Bend and Portland, OR, and continue to work with her weekly in her online mentorship program. Deepening my understanding of the Sūtra has absolutely been a form of therapy for me, as it gives me insight into my habits and patterned behavior and shows me what I can modify and what needs to be released.
The healing that has happened with Bhavani as a guide has been the greatest gift to me!" - Simone L., Portland, OR
