What are the people saying?

“You gain clear confidence to bring the key principles of them into your own class offerings. Chétana’s masterful guidance throughout the course makes this online format of study supportive, clear, and easy to follow. Her depth of knowledge shines during the personable online lectures and the practices of mantra, meditation, and ritual.”

Catherine Nelson-Reid, Yoga Wisdom Course

“Brilliant! The Wisdom and Practice of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras is for every serious yoga practitioner and teacher alike. Chétana presents the Sutras in a clear, practical way. Her approach makes them just as accessible in modern times as they would have been in ancient times.”

Anandi, Yoga Wisdom Course

“What great courses! Very informative, thorough and experiential. I really enjoyed how Chétana offered an in-depth look at these ancient texts and seamlessly linked them to current practices of Yoga. I look forward to more of these courses!”

Kat Kamalika Mills, Yoga Wisdom Course

“Elemental Wisdom gathered me in right from the beginning, renewing and re-inspiring my study of the ageless wisdom teachings of the Vedas and Bhagavad Gita. For a new student this is a rich course ideal for learning the essence of these texts. For the practiced student/teacher, diving into deeper study, you are reignited and enriched with the depth of these teachings.”
