“I am writing this testimonial from the depths of my heart to express the profound impact and gratitude I feel after participating in the training with Ananda Das. Each day, the Sattva Yoga Journeys in the morning, the inspirational talks about each deity, evening Kirtan, and the nourishing meals were exceptional in every way. This training evolved into an experience of self-love and personal compassion.

The genuine connections created during the training, the warmth from each interaction, and the supportive atmosphere cultivated a sense of belonging and acceptance. Ananda's guidance and support made this experience truly special. His passion for Bhakti and Kirtan is infectious, and it fueled a collective energy that brought us all closer together. Exceptional!” Catalina Carvajal (Sattva Yoga Teacher)

“Yashoda Devi Ma is a teacher of our time and a treasure for our Boulder community. She has created a sacred space for her profound teachings which transmit both a depth of mastery and a depth of love. I am uplifted, inspired, and revitalized by Yashoda’s embodiment of potent feminine leadership and wisdom. And my practice has moved to another level through her guidance.” Dr. David Tusek MD
