      "Once lost and unable to find a purpose to my own existence, I now feel so clear and confident. Transformational Yoga and the teachings of Swami Vidyanand truly opened my horizon to a level I would never have expected. I am grateful to the Divine who made my path cross Swamiji's, he is such a knowledgeable, wise and truthful being, sharing his life experience of Yoga with such simplicity and Love. Whether you want to become a "better version of yourself", more serene and confident and/or a great knowledgeable teacher and make a living out of yoga, SRIMA, through Transformational Yoga, gives you the opportunity to realize yourself as YOUR TRUE SELF and that makes all the difference with any experience of Yoga I have had in the past!"
