Embrace a Heart-to-Heart Tradition
"It would be hard to overstate the lifeline that the Yoga Sūtra 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 Sūtra reverberating in me and more-or-less on the tip of my tongue. I find myself saying “There’s a Sūtra for that!” with the same happy incredulity that people use for “There’s an app for that!” The bottom line is that the Sūtra are useful and life-giving. I deeply appreciate Bhāvani's opening them up to us with so much heart, humor and insight." - Andrea D.

"Bhāvani'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 Kaua'i, 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 Bhāvani as a guide has been the greatest gift to me!"
