“I have been searching for 'Who I really am’ since my 30s. Some of the books I read and courses I attended only fuelled me to ask more questions. Through Raja Yoga meditation, many of my questions were answered. It was enlightening to know that 'I am a soul in a physical body'. After my Inner Peace Inner Power Retreat in 2011, I started to be regular in my practice. It has been a magical journey for me.”

Now, it has become a daily routine in my life."

"I’m a very active person and have been a Hatha yoga teacher since 2002. In 2013, I met with an accident and the doctor told me that it would take about 2 years for me to recover. However, my practice of Raja Yoga meditation empowered me with a positive mind. This enabled me to totally absorb my pain and eased all negative thoughts. I understood how to increase my self-esteem through knowledge and meditation practice. I overcame the limitations of my body and my quick recovery was nothing short of a miracle. Raja Yoga has made me a healthy, peaceful and loving human being. "

It is a means of teaching my mind to think in a different way, in a positive way."

I may not be perfect but Raja Yoga has definitely made me a better human being."

I've had many chances to share n pass on what I've learnt to others and feel the satisfaction when they too benefit from it."
- Ramesh, Raja Yoga practitioner of 31 years
