    "Over the years that I traveled to India, one of my favorite destinations was Ananda in the Himalayas. It is one of the true experiences of the ancient principles and practices of yoga. During many of my numerous visits through the years, Sushant Pandey was one of my practitioners. He was not just gifted, he applied his gifts with integrity to the principle and discipline to the practice. There has never been anyone to match his capacity in the magnificent application of the tradition of yoga Nidra. The procedure in which he implemented his work to proficiently create a habitual behavioral change in particular aspects of my existence was life changing. The training, consistent repetition, and observation he skillfully applied to his method and understanding was a transformational preparation for the duties that I faced each time I left him and his teaching to re-enter a chaotic outer world. It helped me to maintain a lucid life. I am eternally grateful."

    "Sushant Jee is one of the greatest yoga teachers I’ve ever met in my life. He showed real meaning of yoga and meditation. His lessons helped me to find my own way how to teach yoga and how to do practice very healthfully and helpfully for people in class. Sushant is also great meditation master. He showed me many ways to keep the mind still, calm, and relaxed. He also helped me to find my inner peace. Meditation practice with Sushant is one of the best practices I've ever had in my life. I strongly recommend this master for people who want to know more about inner world and who want to learn real the meaning of yoga practice. "

    "I cannot recommend highly enough Sushant as a yoga guru. Yoga in all its forms, Raja, Hatha or Kriya, is a wondrous and sublime set of teachings and practices. It is amazing how Sushant, in spite of his being very young, has in himself the wisdom and grace of ancient rishis. He personifies how we probably imagine our sages of the Vedic times. He has a modest and unassuming demeanour yet the rigour of his practice, the sincerity and devotion he has to yoga and the zeal of his transmission of these teachings to his students of different types, from various walks of life is striking and singular. My personal experience as a student with Sushant through the years, while I am decades older than him, has been awe-inspiring. His teachings, his demonstration of asanas, pranayama, bandhas and the very important spiritual visualizations of Chidakasha Dharana, Chakra Shuddi, and Ajapa japa have transformed my horizons, shown me that amidst all the challenges life throws at us, yoga alone illuminates a path forward. If not for Sushant’s steady and serene guidance combined with his relentless insistence that yoga be practiced as envisioned by ancient seers, I would not have had a glimpse of the marvel and grandeur of the vistas that yoga opens up to a human being. Sushant’s teachings and practices have the transformational potential that very few yoga teachers are able to offer."

  • Review by Areceli del Rio Sastre from Finland

    "I met Sushant for the first time in a meditation workshop in Helsinki. It was my introduction to meditation. I had only practiced asanas before and I was very cautious about starting this new phase. I had heard from different friends that it could be painful. With Sushant, I felt very comfortable from the beginning. He is a great professional, with deep knowledge of the topic and very humble at the same time. I felt I could trust him. One of the meditation practices I learnt with him in this workshop, yoga Nidra, has been my main tool through the ups and downs of life during the last years. And I feel deeply grateful.After the workshop in Helsinki, I travelled to India and enjoyed Sushant meditation classes in Ananda. This time another important step forward for me, and again with him.Now with the experience of several years behind me in the practice of yoga and meditation, in Europe and India, I see that Sushant is an extraordinary teacher. His knowhow, the quality of his lessons and his humbleness are a unique combination that I have not experienced with other teachers. I would sincerely recommend to practice meditation with a teacher like him, who can ensure you will leverage all its power to help you grow, while you feel you are completely safe. "
