I have been a student taking private lessons from Vinaya for 6 months and I am completely amazed at the changes I have seen spiritually, emotionally and physically from her instruction. What I tried to heal for 10 years in talk therapy she was able to finally help me with in a much shorter time, with more lasting results.


Not only does she teach me yoga poses with a specific purpose for my own growth or healing but she explains each step of the way how and WHY to do them. In our hour long class each week I am amazed that we are able to go from meditating, to Yoga poses, to discussing the best diet for me, reviewing my week and working on anything that might be on my mind. Vinaya has helped me to let go of my anxiety and really to see the world in a completely different way. She has helped me to shift my perspective and get in touch with my true self and understanding my purpose here. I strongly encourage her classes for anyone who wants Yoga instruction that is very holistic and seeks to incorporate the principles into a new way of living, not just an exercise.

Apart from the mental and spiritual changes, I also have had less physical stress, I've been able to sleep better, and I feel much more in tune with the nutritional needs of my body. I cannot recommend her enough!
