Having only very basic knowledge of Yoga, I was pleased that Rakesh explained everything, from the history of Yoga, to the uses of the yoga poses and finally the effects on the body and mind. With practice I feel that my concentration, emotions and reactions will come into balance. I would recommend Rakesh to anybody considering learning more about Yoga and developing a deeper understanding of the mind and ultimately the inner self.

I've been attending yoga (asana) classes for many years. Although physically helpful, it did not fulfil me emotionally and intellectually. So I decided to attend the online classes by Yogi Rakesh. At first, I wasn't expecting much to happen. Oh boy I was wrong! The sessions were absolutely engaging, just like watching the TV series ‘Game of Thrones’! I was surprised at how deeply it moved me and made me think. It taught me to face life with greater strength, courage and compassion.

Yogi Rakesh’s classes have opened up a whole new horizon for me through the practical application of ancient wisdom, in my life. I am increasingly able to let go of disempowering limitations and be courageous in my own truth. It has brought me greater understanding and inner peace. I unreservedly believe that this learning opportunity holds all that we need to elevate the quality of our lives and the depth of our happiness, if only we decide to avail ourselves of it.

Yogi Rakesh has deep understanding of the human mind, emotion and inner conflicts. He is an unassuming and kind teacher. I like that he treats others with utmost respect, compassion and listens without judgement. His observations and clarifications are profound and clear. He provides a safe presence where you feel easy to share whatever issue affecting your professional and personal life. Every time I listen to him, my experience has been filled with refreshing insight and inspiration.

You cannot hope to improve something without the knowledge and understanding of its nature and the same goes for our self-growth and life quality. Yogi Rakesh’s classes help me to understand the human mind and experiences. He clearly has vast knowledge in Vedic teachings and yoga practices, and more importantly he wisely applies and demonstrates them in real life situations. The practical knowledge and mentoring has absolutely brought about improvements for a better life.

The profundity of Rakesh’ teaching and guidance can only come from an experience and awareness deeper than most of us can imagine. He sees with startling clarity and gently offers advice and instruction, giving all too freely of his time, knowledge and understanding. He has the ability to pinpoint a problem almost immediately and bring about fundamental and lasting change in anyone who approaches him for help.
