What Graduates are Saying About Our Courses

Northeastern US

I have just been reading the Essence of Patanjali and I am so enthralled. I am a yoga teacher with a school that trains people to teach yoga–my teachings are steeped in Patanjali!!!
Martha Lonergan, Washington, DC

Thank you for your Transformation Meditation Teacher Training Course. I thought that I enjoyed and appreciated my practice before I took your course but now I have begun to acknowledge the depth of my consciousness and I have learned to truly love the peace that I feel while I “travel” to that place in a whole new way. I have incorporated meditation classes into the drug program that I work at and find that little by little the women there are able to let go of trying to “relax” and just when they do is when there is a sense of peace in the room that no words can duplicate!
Carin Klinger-Margies, HHC, AADP, Holistic Health and Wellness Counselor, Oceanside, NY

This program is very knowledgeable, informative and over-all extremely useful for anyone who wants to further their knowledge of meditation or internal reflection.
Sarah Blackington, Plymouth, MA

Thank you so much for this wonderful course! In the First Church of Wicca meditation is a huge part of our practice and it is wonderful to have a professional course that I can teach my parishioners.
Rev. Dr. Kendra Vaughan, Duxbury, MA

I seriously enjoyed the course so much, that I completed the entire course within one day. Well written, clear, and informative, anyone interested in Transformation Meditation will enjoy and feel relaxed studying the course.
Evone Ferreira, Orange, NJ

I have been meditating and studying the art of meditation for ten years. Your course completely summed up everything I have done, read and believed in one terrific package. Thank you so much. I look forward to your advanced courses.
Esther Holloway, Lamplighter Ct

The Patanjali CDs produced by Brijendra are clear, understandable and inspiring. I learn something new every time I listen to them. I am using them in the meditation classes that I am teaching at a chiropractor’s office. These beginning meditators understand it and none of them know a bit of Sanskrit. This is because Brijendra is a brilliant teacher who knows how to convey the deepest meaning of Patanjali’s teachings to anyone who will listen. Thank you!!!
Brian Ward, Psychologist and Meditation Teacher, Danville, Vermont

Fantastic Course. I didn’t expect to learn as much as I did about meditation and the direct effects of practice on one’s physical health. VERY informative. Also, I’ve found your marketing advice/tools to be above and beyond! Namaste!
Bridget Farley Glynn, Brewster, NY

I purchased the course in July and just kept reading it and reading it until, I grasped all I could. This course was eye opening as well as reaffirming to my beliefs and sense of purpose as a professional in the health field. Thank you!!
Xavior R. Qvistgaard, New York, NY

Though I have meditated off and on for many years, having read books and taken classes, it is not until now, after studying your course, that I have answers to some of the questions that have long been a problem for me. Thank you so much. I am greatly blessed.
Anna Demetra Siudy, RN, RYT, Oneonta, NY

(On the Essence of Patanjali Yoga Sutras Course and the Teacher Training Home-Study Course) This is a great program! Your meditation program was more than I thought it would be. Keep up the fantastic work. I am looking forward to the next course.
Tony Aloe, Shoreham, NY

I listen to the CDs nightly. I need only to listen for a few minutes to the sounds in the back ground and to Brjendra’s voice and I am gone into samaadhi.
Janina Ward, Danville, Vermont

This course exceeded my expectation. I feel fully prepared to teach the course.
Stephanie Wincik, RN, Girard, PA

I wanted to say that the course is fantastic. I love the way you put it together, very direct, very informative, not too much superfluous information but enough background to help get a full picture of the practice of meditation.I love it and will recommend it to everyone. Thanks again and keep up the good work.

I had familiarity with meditation but your course expanded my knowledge while at the same time simplifying it into a very useable manner/format. I enjoyed it and especially liked the messages/lessons given( as the causes of unhappiness) which I can use in therapy with my patients. Thank you!

I own and operate Holistic Passages Wellness Center in NJ. I teach a beginners Meditation workshop and wrote a manual for the class that concentrates on various breathing exercises and 3 meditation techniques. I wanted to expand my knowledge and take the meditation teaching experience further and was led to you.

Dear Shree: As you know I have completed all the courses for the Advanced Certificate and I am now starting my second year of Satsang podcasts.

Thank you for providing such a comprehensive, easy to understand course. I am enjoying the benefits personally and look forward to teaching in the near future.
Sandy Lee, Killingworth, CT

I had such a great experience with the Transformation Meditation training. As a certified yoga instructor I found your teaching skill and the materials to be superior to other programs I’ve been in; as your method held true to the teachings of meditation without subjecting the student to confusing lingo. Additionally, when I found myself in a difficult financial situation you were understanding and informative- you truly represent an example of how the human spirit can be supportive to the global community. Thank you again for this opportunity!

Great. I have been meditating for well over ten years, and have recently started teaching. But I have been having some difficulty designing a well planned set of instructions to teach. This information was incredibly useful and will smooth the lessons out greatly. I sincerely appreciate the material you presented and the low cost of the class. You are providing an incredible service.
