Vishva-ji’s teaching is loving, powerful, and healing. Of all the asana that I have studied this was by far the most powerfully healing. Every movement, every breath was an opportunity to open and fill with Prana. We were called to step up and BE our true Selves, we were blissful, fearless and expansive. Thank you Vishva-ji! - Anna
