Before my time at Shrimath I was already practicing Iyengar Yoga since two years and read quite a lot of spiritual books. Still I was kind of confused about so many terms like Karma, Pranayama, rebirth and so on. At the same time I wanted to learn ayurvedic cooking. Knowing I will be free in Bangalore for two weeks I was searching for an authentic experience to learn more, gain clearity about the roots of Yoga and its philosophy and learn ayurvedic cooking. So I found Shrimath. Since I have always been interested in the mystery of female nature I felt very lucky to be able to attend the shakti yoga course, which is a program specifically for women.
This course answered many questions I have always had about spirituality, regarding myself and brung a lot of light and clearity into my spiritual path.
The philosophy classes were highly individualized and unique, where I had a lot of opportunities to question many things. Krishna is a great teacher, whose teachings satisfied my intellectual and spiritual needs.
Smriti with her food and cooking classes and also Hema with her Hatha Yoga classes cared perfectly for my physical well being.
I enjoyed the experience so much to live in a real Indian village, with real Indian people, spending time with schoolkids and learn about the Indian tradition and way of living.
A great thanks to all of you, Krishna, Smriti, Hema, Shoba and Smritis wonderful mother. I wish you all the best for “Shrimath Yoga” and hope I can return to “the Yoga village” one day.
