    "My Brother and Yoga Teacher, Pradeep Teotia. It was a pleasure meeting you and experiencing your dynamic Yoga workshops. I have encountered many different workouts being a former All Pro Linebacker in the NFL, playing for New Orleans Saints, Houston Texans and Jacksonville Jaguars for a career of 8 Years. I just loved the Pradeep Teotia Yoga flow, it was vigorous but very smooth and I learned so much. Just tell me when the next one is and I’m there. "

    "Pradeep brings our club, Equinox, pure joy when he teaches. Our members line up outside his class to participate and experience yoga. He allows even our newest members the experience to never take for granted, to open their hearts, breathe, sweat and laugh. Truly unique and always engaging, I appreciate with gratitude his devotion. Thank you, Pradeep!!!"

  • Review by Robin Gulenchyn from San Francisco, California

    "In my experience, I have found Pradeep to be profoundly knowledgeable in the spiritual philosophy and physical anatomy of Yoga. During his lifelong background in Yoga and his experience as a professional athletic trainer, he has attained a solid foundational knowledge of proper positioning, as well as rich insight into the needs of students. Pradeep is rare in that he is fully engaged and knowledgeable enough to guide students to perceive their ability beyond their current awareness and vision."

  • Review by Jutta Schmeling from Kriftel, Germany

    "Pradeep is a very good Yoga teacher with lots of experience and lots of challenges. He challenged the people even he helped and adjusted us in the different kind of Yoga postures. He is teaching continuously, discipline and with a kind of humor, which I really like."

  • Review by Sherry Sidoti from Cape Code, Massachusetts

    "Pradeeps teaching style is clear, concise, he uses wonderful projection with his voice; but more importantly he is encouraging, humble, and graceful and never loses his sense of humor and to be taught by someone of Pradeeps nature only serves to bring out these same qualities in all of us taking his class. I have never felt my practice stronger than the week of taking Pradeeps classes, not simply because he challenged me with more complex variations or by holding postures for longer than I am used to, but because he believed in me."
