    "I am a 73-year-old man, a Buddhist for 13 years, and someone who has always been interested in my personal development and has undertaken 6 years of conventional therapy in my 50s. I recently undertook a course of self-administered trauma releasing therapy due to anxiety from childhood. I had recently become interested in chakras through the influence of a friend. My motivation in undertaking chakra healing was that I had never felt happy.I had 4 healing sessions with Shakti for about an hour and a half for each session, after an initial assessment lasting 30 minutes. I have felt more buoyant and happier than previously, and this has been commented on by a friend. My healing sessions with Shakti have been very different from anything I have previously tried. Shakti is very kind, warm, caring, and I feel, a very dedicated and genuine healer, who has given me her all in the sessions we have shared together."

    "This was a beautiful experience during a long weekend break in April 2015 and I have loved every minute! I have learnt so much that I can apply to my busy life. I not only was able to connect with myself again, but was able to meet some wonderful people. Shakti is such an inspirational teacher and I would highly recommend Yoga I Am to anyone. I definitely am coming back!Thank you Shakti."

    "I recently attended a 1 day detox yoga course with Yoga I am. The day was filled with powerful healing meditation, which i found extremely beneficial, refreshing and started to feel very calm as the day went on, and I loved every minute of it. Shira's teaching style is natural and gentle yet concise and informative. She creates a warm and welcoming atmosphere and is more than happy to answer any questions. I would highly recommend Yoga I Am to anyone who desires to connect to their soul. Thank you Shira for your wisdom and teaching."

    "I had existing experience and knowledge of yoga prior to coming on the 1 day course. The day was time well spent! It reinforced both my practice and understanding. Shira is driven to spread the holistic approach of yoga in everyday life on and off the mat. Just loved it! Thanks Shira."

    "The 1 day detox yoga course with Yoga I am was based on ancient wisdom traditions and scientific knowledge. It was a journey of the soul to discover who I am, to achieve balance and wholeness. Shira's program uses intense practices to create this wholeness in the cellular body, mind and spirit. I found the meditations and breath work amazing. Shiras teachings help us to connect to our hearts as love. Thanks Shira."

    "After an eventful and stressful year, going for a one week retreat at Yoga I Am was a much needed escape from hectic London. Whilst there, Shakti taught me the discipline of daily yoga and meditation which was just what my mind and body needed. In my time away, I learnt a lot about myself. My stay was insightful and relaxing and all in the setting of the beautiful island of Ibiza. The retreat is just a walk away from the beaches and is on the quieter, more peaceful side of the island. Even in December 2014, it was sunny enough for us still to do a few of the yoga sessions on the rooftop which overlooks the sea and island. The retreat was still in its final stages of completion when I visited and I am sure it will be even more beautiful once complete."
