From other living traditions, processes such as Sakshi Bhava, Mantras etc., are shared to deepen the Meditative experience. Daily interaction with rural school kids and working with nature at Shrimath farm, help us to stay grounded in life.

"I was living life stuck on stupid. Making every decision based on emotions from the past. Constantly creating a future formed from my previous experiences. I was living a negative pattern of " just more of the same . There is no quick fix to this problem, there is only a process of things that we have to go through in order to consistently act in a new way.
The team at Shrimath Yoga approaches the system of self discovery as an integrated whole. Working both with the limited system of the body and our divine interconnection with the cosmos."

" My meeting with Krishna was destiny, in my opinion. I felt a complete peace and calm, as he asked me to wait for a few minutes while he was taking class for someone else. He then patiently explained to me about the course and I signed up on the spot.
The course covered all aspects of true values in life and work, with asanas and postures were one but an important part of it. There is a neighborhood village school where we spent some mornings teaching to a very enthusiastic set of children."
