Dearest Krishanji
Your presence and guidance in my life  in addition to  all your programmes and trainings that I have attended with you have changed my life in ways that I cannot even express in words. However I will attempt to express the inexpressible. These words are just a mere glimpse of the impact that you made and continue to make in my life.

Yoga has truly become a way of life for me and not just a practice. I have learnt the true essence of Yoga with you. Your teachings have added so much depth, reverence and beauty to my Yoga practice and life in general. My expression and perception of life has deepened and become so much more meaningful. Your teachings have so much of simplicity, humility, practicality, loads of fun and sacredness and this translates into an experiential reality for me in my day to day to life. It brings a lot of inspiration to all aspects of my life. Not a day goes by where I do not ponder on and experience/implement something that I have learnt with you. This continues to add more value and depth to my life.

Most importantly I feel that I have become a better and stronger person. Everytime I come to your course, I leave feeling more beautiful and enriched as a person. You have been so instrumental in giving the world a better and more authentic version of myself. And the most precious thing for me is that you take me closer to my Self and always deepen my connection and devotion to Guruji. I feel closer to Guruji everytime I am with you.
You have added more beauty, fun and lightness to my Spiritual journey. Thank you for walking this path with me and guiding me with so much of love and compassion along the way J
I feel very very lucky and blessed to be one of your students and have you as my teacher, mentor and guide. It is very rare to have such fortune.
Immense Gratitude an Lots of Love

 

From my first real encounter with yoga experience in Oct 2004 during Sri Sri Yoga TTC 1 in Taiwan, I experienced the deepest rest and emptiness of the mind.
From time to time, I experienced that again. Looking back, those moments of silences all tend to relate to Krishanji’s courses, be it Sri Sri Yoga, Therapeutic Yoga, Advance Meditation or Himalaya Awakening.
Somehow, it is the way Krishanji leads the stretches and prepares our mind before we sit down for the meditation. Also, it is the way he delivers the knowledge because he has gone through it and understands it fully.
He is a true Yogi leading by example.

 

“Studying yoga with Krishanji helped me comprehend yoga, not only as a life style but also as a way of being: Simple, childlike, joyful and wise. He rekindles human values such as genuine care, love and selfless service in his students as a walking example. To me, he is not only a yoga teacher but a living example of a real yogi. Dearly inspired by him, I consider learning yoga in the presence of such a yoga teacher as a privilege.” 

 

“Learning from and being with Krishanji is a transformational experience. His methods and teachings are not only from the ancient scriptures but are made alive to us from his own experience. He is truly a Yogi himself and just being in his presence inspires me to follow the path of Yoga in a bona fide and authentic way. He is also charming and infectiously witty and makes the most challenging knowledge and techniques so easy and effortless. True to the tradition of Yoga we come out transformed not only at the body level but also learn to master and align our minds in service of ourselves and mankind. If you wish to live this life well, you certainly need an encounter with our amazing Krishanji! No words can describe the experience adequately. I feel eternally grateful to be on this path of Yoga and more so with his guidance. “

 

I have been meaning to write since the Himalayan Awakening (8 months ago already)  to express my deepest gratitude to you for making that experience so meaningful and life changing for me….. 
Every aspect of the HA experience, the  exercise/yoga sessions, meditations, and simple caring way you shared your vast knowledge with us, was for me a highlight of my life and journey on the yoga path.
Your wonderful gentle, loving and fun manner  as a guide and teacher,  opened the world of yoga to me from the surface I was at, to a  vastly deeper understanding and appreciation of, not just the Asana’s (to practice with “honour and respect”), but the many and wonderful aspects of yoga as a way of life and quest for self realization. 
Your teachings have helped me live a more fulfilled life, by sharing your vast knowledge in such a simple gentle way. Theses gifts I carry with me constantly in my daily life. I am eternally grateful to you Krishanji (and to myself for bringing me to your course), 

“I’d like to share my experience of being your student.

Firstly, you create and maintain a wonderful learning atmosphere, free from judgement and expectation.  So, on your courses, I am able to relax completely and be myself while learning. You also thoroughly embody the yogic teachings. Your example of simplicity, compassion, love and service inspires me. It’s a magical combination to be allowed to totally relax while also feeling inspired to develop my potential.
Without doubt the greatest gift I find in your courses is the way you empower me. Your emphasis on clearly explaining exactly what I can do to clear my mind and experience the unbound joy and depth of yoga has left me with a simple road map. And KrishanJi, I use this map to navigate the most challenging moments in life, staying as centered and clear as I possibly can. Being told by you that I am the one who must initiate my own practice and having been given all the instruction and encouragement to do it has empowered me tremendously. 
Also, on the physical level, you’ve given me the knowledge and practical experience to remedy the imbalances that come up as part of life..  through this gift you’ve added resilience and balance to my physical life – and confidence that I can do so much to look after my body. I now have the capacity to create and maintain that feeling of comfort, liveliness and harmony in my physical body.  I know that via the yogic practices I am doing everything I can to continue to be as physically fit, healthy and well as I can be.
The result of periodically attending retreats with you and regularly practicing the things you’ve taught me over the past 14 years, is that my emotions are no longer volatile, instead my emotional life is balanced and rich with insight and freedom. Depression, anxiety, frustration have turned from being major battles in my life to being tiny fluctuations in my mind. It is also obvious to me that my capacity to be useful has increased tremendously, most of the hours in my days are productive whereas previously I needed so much more time to recover from my work. My sleeping, memory, and mental clarity have all improved. My relationships are healthier and more enjoyable. I feel incredibly strong and powerful within myself and at the same time I am in touch with the beauty and delicacy of life and value it like never before. Krishanji, I am thrilled to be on this yogic journey and it has been a privilege to attend courses with you. It is not possible for me to fully express my gratitude to you. There was a big gap in my knowledge of what life is and how to live like a yogi and you have perfectly filled the gap by generously sharing your time and experience, the longer courses have been especially beneficial for me. I feel blessed to be your student.”

“Studying yoga with Krishanji helped me comprehend yoga, not only as a life style but also as a way of being: Simple, childlike, joyful and wise. He rekindles human values such as genuine care, love and selfless service in his students as a walking example. To me, he is not only a yoga teacher but a living example of a real yogi. Dearly inspired by him, I consider learning yoga in the presence of such a yoga teacher as a privilege.” 

“I was so scattered and only after doing the first SSYoga course with you, did I find my peace within. It was after your teaching that I started becoming regular with my practises and recognized that I needed to prioritize myself , time with myself. Before you had come into my life, I never enjoyed spending time with myself. You taught me to celebrate each moment, to find my joy in myself and with the regular discipline of yoga instilled in me, my journey became that much more sweeter.”,
“It has been a priviledge to be under your guidance for all these years. Every single course I have attended with you has peeled off another layer and brought me closer to myself. This is reflected whenever I conduct courses and in my personal life also. Your guidance and teachings have allowed me to navigate through life with greater ease, lightness and confidence, whilst at the same time nurturing depth and freedom. The knowledge is so easily accessible when you speak. I am honoured that you have been there for me on this yoga journey for over 18 years and pray that you will continue to be there to hold my hand.”
“Your simple yet profound knowledge about what is true Yoga, has certainly changed my perspective towards Yoga. Before I met you, I thought Yoga is pursuing deeper and more challenging postures. But during your classes, simple and basic postures already good enough for me to achieve a relax state of mind and body. That’s when I suddenly awaken from my previous understanding of, yoga has to be hard and challenging! 
The above is just  physical level. What about the mind? Chitta Vritti Nirodha.. You utter this sutra many times during our retreat in Langkawi. THAT’S IS YOGA, says you. And today, I have this sutra inked on my arm, and certainly deep inside my heart. 
My yoga journey will never end. The matter of fact, the true journey began after I met you. Before that, Yoga was merely an external and physical practice for me. 
I can’t say enough to thank you, and Bhartiji for showing us, pure love does exist. Moments with you in many places has gave me strength and faith that this is the right path. 
Thank you Krishanji.”

“It’s a life transformation since year 2010 when I attended TTP with Krishanji , and the magic is still continuing every time when I be in his courses. His words, his love, his compassion and his authenticity is something makes him a yogi in his own way. He never share something which are not coming from his real experience. His teaching and Yogic wisdom is so universal.

 

If I have to describe Krishan ji and his teachings in one word, it will be “PURITY” which is also the name of his blog, “Shudham”.
Today yoga has taken many shapes and forms. 
So much glamour is added to the simple practices of yoga.
But Krishan ji remains untouched by all the jargon and fancy. 
He cuts through all the clutter and sounds the bell of truth and sanctity.
He speaks little, unlike many others who keep continuously talking.
But yet his words communicate volumes of profound knowledge and wisdom.
It his simplicity, authenticity, goodness, integrity, diligence, dedication, love that touches my heart and my being. 
When he practices and demonstrates asana, he becomes one with it. 
It feels as if he is doing prayers with his asana practice. 
Once you a do course with Krishan ji, your yoga practice and life will not remain the same.  Do courses with him at your own risk! 🙂 
Krishan ji often says, 
“We do not become better yoga instructors by simply learning more postures, 
we become better yoga instructors by becoming better yogi.”
I was teaching yoga even before I met Krishan ji. 
But after his teachings, the yoga instructor in me has embarked upon the beautiful journey of becoming a yogi!
In present days, while majority learn yoga from a yoga teacher or instructor, 
I feel so immensely blessed and grateful that in this lifetime itself, 
I got the opportunity to learn yoga from two greatest YOGIs-
Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar and Yogacharya Krishan Verma!

 

Teresa Tree 2

There is a farmer with big. and bright eyes like sunshine.
He is quiet and peaceful like moon.
One day, 
the farmer sowed the seed in the yoga farm in 2005.
The tiny seed has been watered and nurtured with grace of love.
One day, the seed sprouted.
The farmer started nourishing it with yoga wisdom at its each breath in and breath out.
As the days went by, the seed became a tiny tree, and it grew bigger and bigger, taller and taller.
The tree went through all the situations, 
whether it was hot or cold,  
whether it was sunny or rainy,. 
whether it was cloudy or stormy,  
The farmer stood by the tree all the way,
by telling Patanjali ‘s knowledge such a profound, deep and practical wisdom;  
by playing flute to soothe its agitated mind; 
by his presence –being ONE with him.  
The ancient love is showering upon the tree.

“My favourite aspect of SSY teacher training was my incredible teacher Krishan Verma.  I could have gone to any school of yoga to receive training in how to do asanas properly, offer modifications, correct tiny details of postures, and to understand he functional anatomy of each posture.  If yoga was just about physical fitness for me, then I might have made that choice. What I really wanted was a complete knowledge of yoga.  Having gone to many yoga classes at many yoga studios, I felt that not all, but many of the teachers were “pretending yoga” the same way children play house and the kids pretend to be the mother. There was some gap between the profound ancient tradition of yoga, and the instruction in the yoga studio that had been diluted or modified knowingly or unknowingly somewhere down the line. The teachers had a lot of expertise when it came to asanas, but something was missing. I felt it not only when they tried to make some explicit reference to yogic wisdom, but even in the pauses between their words. I felt we were resting on the surface and I wanted something more.  In SSY, I found the authentic training that encompassed a full definition of yoga. While most schools these days give instruction in the history and philosophy of yoga, absorbing this knowledge from a teacher who is a living example of every pearl of wisdom is a very special experience. In our sessions, when Krishanji would elaborate on Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras or the Yogasara Upanishads, I could feel the knowledge taking root in me…… The ability to expound on spiritual concepts is something many learned teachers can do, but I believe I was blessed to have a teacher who gave each piece of wisdom out like a seed and somehow planted them all in my heart.  I have had the privilege of watching the seeds sprout and grow over the last 12 years as I have grown more and more into the adult that I always wanted to be.  In my training I had an experience of the depth of my own nature, the silent pool just below the rippling surface of my mind; I felt the freedom, connection, playfulness I knew as a small child; and I felt the strength of my own stability, the equipoise I would later use to navigate some difficult challenges life had in store for me…..”

 

It’s a privilege and it’s rare in one’s life to meet a real Yoga Master, one who embodies, vibrates, breaths Yoga… Yogacharya Krishan Verma is a Yoga Master of such a kind. One who leads you to yoga… through his mere presence… through the simplicity and depth of his teachings… it doesn’t matter if it is a challenging asana class, or a still silent meditation… a playful  laughter session, a wonder-full walk in the nature or a showering of knowledge awakening you to your Self. Yoga naturally happens around him since he truly lives it. The magic of that Union of you to your Self… to everybody… to the sacredness of the whole Universe…

One class with him, few words or even just one gaze from him and you feel you are done. You are there. Diving in that Union, in that pure experience of Yoga. No more need of any practice.

I’ve had the privilege of walking with him for more than 15 yrs now, under the blessing of Gurudev. Growing, falling, learning, melting, raising .. starting new again and again, thousands times. I have the privilege of learning everyday from him, from his humbleness, his humor, his vibrant being human as well as much beyond that. That sacredness and divinity which is our own nature. The same that we all are. Yet somehow fully unfolded there. Available there to quench your thirst for it. 

What is again and again attracting me on this path of Yoga is fully there in his very unique way of conveying and teaching, of guiding you in such a delicate, loving at the same time always surprising, sometimes unexpected and very direct way.  You can’t escape. He knows you as he abides in that Union where there is no two. That Union which is the real meaning and ultimate goal of Yoga.

 


“Krishanji is not a yoga teacher in the traditional sense of the word. He is a reflection of the Divine consciousness and a mirror of the mystical, subtle levels of existence. When he teaches, I feel a calming, serene, playful, and wise presence in the room. Krishanji is able to transmit an experience that comes from an authentic yoga practice – where I feel connected to myself, the universe around me, and rejoice in just Being. 
Through Krishanji I learned my most valuable insight as a yoga teacher – that the teaching is not coming from me. When I am connected to the source of all wisdom and knowledge, it simply flows out in a way that benefits those receiving the teaching.”

“Learning from and being with Krishanji is a transformational experience. His methods and teachings are not only from the ancient scriptures but are made alive to us from his own experience. He is truly a Yogi himself and just being in his presence inspires me to follow the path of Yoga in a bona fide and authentic way. He is also charming and infectiously witty and makes the most challenging knowledge and techniques so easy and effortless. True to the tradition of Yoga we come out transformed not only at the body level but also learn to master and align our minds in service of ourselves and mankind. If you wish to live this life well, you certainly need an encounter with our amazing Krishanji! No words can describe the experience adequately. I feel eternally grateful to be on this path of Yoga and more so with his guidance. “

“Krishanji walks the talk. Its as simple as that. He doesn’t share anything that is not in his direct experience and that he has not experimented with on himself. This is why his courses are so powerful and full of grace. I have had some of my most profound spiritual experiences and transformations on programs with Krishanji. Krishanji says very little but the love and grace radiates in his presence, and transforms something deep within, and you have no choice but to also start radiating the same. I would like to write so much more but i’ll leave it here as I was asked to keep it short. This lifetime is blessed because of the presence of Guruji and Krishanji in my life.”

 

I am so fortunate to be a student of  Krishanji. I came from a software engineering background. PE was never my favorite class in school days. I never thought of becoming a PE or yoga instructor when I was growing up. For many years, my approach to spiritual knowledge was through intellectual understanding, and my understanding of Yoga was limited. When I took Krishanji’s course, and later the Sri Sri Yoga teacher training, I felt deep fatherly love from Krishnaji. His presence is so natural, humble, loving, truthful and full of devotion. Just by sitting in his presence, analytical words and intellectual understanding lose their charm, I experienced so much love and contentment, which made it easy for me to transit from mind to heart.  Krishnaji ‘s teaching is very simple yet very profound. He has amazing ability to point out our delusion in a straight forward yet most loving way. His words again and again help lead me from delusion to reality…..Krishanji is totally living what he teaches. That’s why his teaching carries so much power. He said: “The reality is simple and obvious, but it takes some level of humility and awareness to see it.” The path of yoga is blessed by masters of thousands year of tradition and I feel so grateful that Krishanji led me to tread the path of yoga.

 

 

“My mind is pulled into so many attractive things in this world. This voracious mind cannot be tamed. I chase after something that seems so convincing. Distracted by these desires and  fears, preoccupied by the noise, I stumble into your blog,  a video or your course. In a split moment, I am back again. Your voice, your few words,  your kindness, your simplicity, your peace remind me all over again. All that i am looking for, all that I want is there. It opens me to beauty, strength and something so sweet. My heart knows how precious it is.  And tears come flowing down. I don’t know how I deserve this, but I am grateful to you. Thank you for being you, thank you for reminding me of me.”

 

I was in AOL for 5 years, and already teaching Part 1 when I first met KrishanJi. This is when my Yoga journey truly began : when I went to Canada for Sri Sri Yoga TTC. Through his loving guidance I learnt to do asana’s properly. I started to go into a deep state through asana. This was a new experience for me then. A magical gift. And the simplicity with which he explained the knowledge, made it so easy to understand and digest.
I realised with time that it was more than just knowledge and technique that I was getting from this teacher. It was the grace that he carries as a Yogi that was making it happen.  
I was inspired to spread this knowledge of Yoga. Over the next few years I was blessed to assist KrishanJi in many SSYTTC’s. I learnt so much in these years & I continue to do so. I attend as many courses as I can with KrishanJi, even if it means traveling far. 
I know that I still have a long way to go. However, where I have reached thus far has so much to do with KrishanJi. I am truly grateful to have this precious teacher and mentor in my life. For me he is an extention of the Guru. I long to be in his space just like I long to be with GuruJi.
My humble pranaams to my teacher. 

All these years, no matter which courses I attended in different countrieswith different languages or culture, I had witnessed everytime how Krishanji‘s sharing moved people into tears and joy. The simplicity of his sharing always reflects the light of truth. He speaks the language of the heart. Being in his space itself is a healing process. Not to mention his bhakti shows his devotion in a way that his cell reflect the longing towards master, towards  god.

I’m gratefull to have such yoga mentor in this path accompanying me moving from the rawness to the maturity on this path and seeing the universal truth.”

 

Dear Krishan ji
I have been meaning to write to you for quite a while.
I did the course with you in Dec 2011, exactly 3 years ago in los angeles center. It was a 6-7 day course and I wanted to let you know this course changed my life in a big way.
I have been doing my sri sri yoga practice – 1 hour daily following the go-home insructions. i do this every day for an hour and take a break once a week for a day as instructed by you.

Some of the benefits that i had immediately within a month of doing this was: Dosha balancing (I re-took the dosha analysis form given by Sriram). My Pitta was very high and my kapha was bare minimum when i started and within a month this was balanced out! i couldnt have any citrus fruits etc – and most of the food did not suit me created a lot of acidity and other discomforts. But that was completely fixed.
Now having been doing this for 3 years (not missed a day except when i was ill or the weekly break) – I can say – this has provided strength, muscles, balance, high prana, ability to eat anything at anytime without thinking of consequences, balanced doshas, and overall sense of wellbeing and gratitude!!

The only question that I had asked you during the course was – How long does it take to make it a regular practice just like Kriya and you had said 90 days. And I can say with confidence – that having done this regularly now – I cannot stay without it..just like kriya 🙂 So thank you, thank you, thank you!!”

 

Dear Krishanji i am so Happy to start follow you blog, you are so ispiring even if we leave so far. I can feel your presence right now while i read your word. I feel so lucky to meet you in Bad Antogast during the Summer 2017. TTP has been very constructive with you i feel very bless! i keep reading please write as much as you can… .   

 

“dear krishanji
my path to be a yogi began with you. i still remember the simplisity and stillness of the mind , the joy and enthusiasm i experienced in my first SSY ttc in Taiwan. over the years my mind seems to be a bit confused , cluttered , and judgemental.
this last Penang yoga retreat has brought some of the experiences back, your sharings and words of wisdom have sunken in, you are my inspiration on the path. you bring me closer to Guruji.”


“The 10day retreat has enabled me to find grace n gratitude in moments of my daily life. Perhaps its the spirituality of yoga at play…….honour & respect.

Krisanji has his humorous way of inculcating spirituality in us. We can always choose to “travel light” if we want, after all there are no luggage restrictions. All thanks to Krisanji for his guidance and all those present at the retreat.”


“Dearest Krishanji,

I am truly grateful to have been joining your courses in Penang, Malaysia for two consecutive years. I have been carrying & struggling with some impressions in my system since end of 2016. Eversince then, I had been having trouble going deep into meditation, as how I used to be. But Intensive Advanced Meditation came as a divine blessing from the Master through you. I put forth my query to you in a paper on Day 3, and i found myself speechless when I went so deep into meditation right after morning sadhana on final day. I did not want to let go of that moment, & stayed as long as I could, savouring every bit of that divine presence. That moment revealed to me that we are all “headless”; as been mentioned by our Master.

With tears of gratitude flowing continuously from my eyes, i bowed down to the Master & HIS presence in the form of Krishanji. Thank you for being you. I also sent out the merits of this deep meditation to all sevak angels, fellow participants & the entire world.

With love & gratitude.”


“The 10 days course was really inspiring to me as I really find a new understanding about Art Of Living. I feel gratitude and blessed with love. all the bhajans had touched my deepest part of my heart and mind. I can’t stop myself from remembering the rhythm and tears from my eyes, especially OM NAMAh SHIVAYA by Krishanji. The Yoga part was great too as I feel I am in the touch with it, each stretch make me feel my part of body, which part of body is weak and strong. I don’t know how to express about the gratitude to Krishanji that make me feel I am reborn on this path. I just want to say Thank You  to Krishanji for making these 10 days a memorable event in my life. As now I think about the camp, I would eventually feel that I had the tears of love and gratitude in my heart. Really thanks to everyone for making one of the best camp for me.


“I only have deepest gratitude in my being for your guidance. I took your Sri Sri Yoga Part II class in DC and have never experienced asanas in the way you taught them–integrating asana with yoga. I have never felt my body in so much awareness and love. Every cell in my body was rejoicing and in each posture there deep prayer to the divine. You are a gifted teacher and I anxiously await your next course and hope to take teacher’s training with you.”

We appreciate your love, attention, enthusiasm, and efforts for conducting our sublime Yoga Immersion course, in Dallas.  You held the sessions efficiently with playfulness and humor while making it an informative, enjoyable, restful, and rejuvenating experience. You brought vast knowledge from Patanjali Yog sutras and  Himalayan Masters, in a way that we all could understand and apply in our daily life. You demonstrated the importance of doing asanas by effort, perfected with relaxation and meditation on the infinite,  from outer to inner activity and silence. We are grateful that you shared your knowledge of and experience with techniques and games while directing our mind towards GuruJi.
Although I have been practicing yoga & meditation for several years, your course furthered building my internal environment. This experience will renew previously taught practices and recognize that with the divine guidance of Guruji’s directed teachers, I learn to tap the depth of nature. Leena and I look forward to seeing you at Satsang and other programs.
My rgds to Bharatiji.  I remember her teaching functional anatomy and physiology so and patiently and sincerely. We are indeed privileged and blessed to have gifted teachers like of both.


“He made us climb the mountain, Right to the Top!

Not only did we climb it, but he established that mountain deep inside us too!
A mountain of faith,
A mountain of peace,
A mountain of joy,
A mountain of LOVE!

We reached the pinnacle of devotion,
And just stayed there, singing and dancing in ecstasy!

His presence magical & infinite,
His words carrying a universe within a universe,
His smile like the blossom of a thousand petals,
His eyes sparkling divinity!

To him, who has opened another dimension to existence,
I offer my humble pranams,
To him who has taken us from the real to the “real”
I offer my humble pranams…

Thankyou Krishanji!
You have set a heart on fire again,
It is burning in sweet devotion!

May your MAGIC touch all Beings!”

 

“Dear Krishanji ,

I was a part of your therapeutic yoga retreat which just concluded today at the Bangalore ashram.
I was transported to the good old days of 2006 TTC of SSY that we did in Bangalore ashram. You made Yoga so simple. Kept telling us repeatedly not to compare, which is what we keep doing often. Most amazing program . Extremely honoured to have been a part of this program . Please keep coming to India .

“Asatoma sadgamay”, “don’t focus too much on the body “, have had a profound effect on me.
Thanks for being you , for living the knowledge you spoke , for being our role model Yogi.Thanks to our awesome Guruji for giving us Krishanji.”

 

“Thank you so so much for your wonderful and beautiful Knowledge, Advice, and Yoga that ended perfectly yesterday. I was very sincerely moved by your last act (on the stage) after we finished our 7 days course of Sri Sri Yoga 2 and Advance Silence Course in Penang, Malaysia. I can really felt your blessings for all of us that moment. It was soooo beautiful and touching. Hope you enjoyed the Satsang Dance with all of us that night, it was so wonderful that I won’t be able to lose these memories.

I am a very very talkative person that naturally always tries to make all the people around me happy, smiling and laughing, that 3-4 days of silence made me realised “Talking in the heart sometimes feels nice and funny too” haha….
To be honest it is killing me softly and gently on the first 2 days beautifully. It is by far my biggest and toughest personal spiritual challenge I ever did. I’m glad that I did quite well, even I looked at the phone sometimes and tried to talk. I’ll do the advance course again until i dropped this habit.

Anyway I sincerely wish and also send our blessing on your spiritual journey. See U when I see U.”Dear Krishan Ji,

I got a chance to attend your Himalayan Awakening course in Feb-March, 2018. 
I feel honored to share my experiences during those 21 incredible days of knowledge, gratitude and fun.
We experienced the ultimate bliss and our souls are being pampered and relaxed thoroughly. 
During the unique processes in this course, I had been a witness of my own mind/thoughts and also could witness the witness. I experienced the witness earlier too during the deep meditation sometimes . But the second and third levels of witnessing is a very unique experience.
Thank you very much for you and Bharati Ji for leading us through the wonderful experiences of soul searching.

Beloved Krishanji. We are remembering you so much today. We feel so blessed to have you as our teacher. We long for be in your divine presence again, see your smile, & hear your voice again. A true yogi is rare and precious, and we feel so so so fortunate to have experienced YOU. Please come back to visit us in South Africa, we are all longing to drown in the devotion, knowledge, & simplicity that is Krishanji. Forever students who carry you in our hearts. 


Dear  Krishanji,

Your blog posts continue to inspire me to move forward in love, devotion, and service. Words are in simple language, carrying depth and have helped uplift my spiritual practices.

I was touched when you wrote, “To tell my story; I have to drop modesty ——-Modesty is a characteristic of the ego, and it belongs to the outer world.”

I am reminded of my schoolteacher who told me that: Pride need not be a bad trait but don’t allow pride to get in your way
So, having pride is completely acceptable, but being consumed by it is bad. Do not automatically castigate the opinion of others. You may even find yourself unnecessarily rejecting a good proposal or initiative only because you did not think of it. So, if you are smart, rely on your reasoning and if pride interferes then it is a feature not worth nurturing.

Story RE; being extremely pseudo-humble and distorted-pride:
A merchant considered himself as the most humble person to have ever lived. One day a villager told him that another person in a neighboring village was even more humble than him. Alas, the merchant was furious and shouted with anger that no living person can be more humble than him !!

 

Dear KrishanJi,
Privileged and blessed to be your SSY student where your knowledge, compassion and love were bestowed on us. I experienced first hand how you passionately brought yoga philosophy and teachings from the Himalayan masters and Guruji to transform us. This helped us shift our mind inwards and radiate love outwards. You have been an inspiring mentor, superb Yoga teacher, and most gracious human being. I wish more of my Dr colleagues and friends could get an opportunity to do yoga courses with you.
There are no permanent goodbyes in this era of social media. We’ll meet again. Best wishes,
‘To associate with a sadhu is like sitting near a seller of perfumes. You may not be able to own any of the wonders he holds, but what emanates from them will envelop you’. — Saint Kabir


I think of you all the time and treasure the yoga classes with you in South Africa. I wish every human being on the planet could get an opportunity to do yoga with you.


Krishanji, I LOVE, and look forward and savour every post you write. The simplicity, love and devotion soothes my soul especially when I am in places where I am alone and it is very cold, and things are tough going. Thank you so much for sharing so much with us. Am truly blessed to call you my teacher.

 

Course with Krishan Verma was inspiring and amazing with lots of deep knowledge and his practical experiences sharing with as. Looking forward to repeat it..
Thanks to him again

 

Beloved Krishanji, today is Teacher´s Day. I am so grateful to Guruji for you, he gave me many gifts but the honor of having you as a teacher, attending your workshops and helping you was one of the big blessings in my life. Thank you for your Love, caring, knowledge talks and advices . I celebrate you today.

 

Thank you Krishanji for a great experience of what is yoga. I feel blessed to have a chance to met you. Words not enough to express. Happy and grateful. Hope to se you again 🙂

Warmest love and jay gurudev,


Jgd Krishanji

You have changed my life after doing the SSY 1 and TTC with you.
I used to do my yoga practices trice a week , and after completing the course with you , i do it daily . I can not start my day without it .
Thanks to you and GURUJI for moulding my life into a yogic one.
Looking forward to see you again in South Africa.
Love and greetings

Dearest Krishanji
I consider myself lucky and blessed to have you as my Yoga teacher.
Thank you for being you🙏

I had a very special yoga journey with you and is still continuing.
In 2010 I did my first course with you and I loved being in your space. It was my first ever Yoga course and did the teacher training. Did not grasp fully what Yoga was about. I enjoyed the Asanas and practiced  everyday after the course for a while.
In 2017 I did the SSY TTP in Bad Antogast with you. It was magical experience for 18 days. I started understanding Yoga thanks to you and maybe I was a bit more ready and aware than few years back .
I had an immense joy observing and learning from you.
You don’t only teach perfect Asanas but transform each moment into a life experience. I was becoming more flexible and stronger but mostly I was  growing and expending.
Your instructions to go into a posture were making my mind more flexible, I could bare difficulties with much more ease, I was smiling while holding longer, I had full trust that you will not ask me to hold more than I could bare and never thought when you would instruct me to come out of a posture.
Stretching a bit more after a long hold was making me realize that I can always do more in life, give more, bare more, support more, don’t give up before doing few times a bit more. All thoughts and images were coming like a realization that you were teaching me  life lessons and that physical part of Yoga was just a mere by product.
I was loving discovering myself and opening up while following your instructions.
And they were those magical moments were you were entering my mind and I was hearing your instructions before you verbalizing them. And other moments where I had the impression that you were talking to me as if I was in a one to one course even though we had no eye contact, so I was thinking that Krishanji is connected with each one of us simultaneously!
There was magic in receiving simple  instructions with very few words having deep effects on every part of my being!
In my teaching I do my best to give similar experience to the participants so they can grow beyond the yoga mat as you did gracefully with me.
Recently I decided to spent most of my time doing Seva: teaching, growing our organization, creating platforms for teachers and volunteers to be more active and involved, assisting where ever I can make a difference… being useful.
Values you kindled in me and I am ever grateful for you
Thanks Krishanji.
With love and gratitude

 

 

Dear Krishanji

I will never forget my experience on your courses….tears of gratitude and joy, feeling fully energized yet relaxed. To go from just an average Joe with no knowledge of yoga to such profound experience in just a few sessions….wow :). You are truly amazing.
Hope to see you soon.

 

I feel so blessed to have had SSYTTC training with Kishanji and now through this blog- I can “hear’ him and remain his student “always!”


Dear krishanji

Thank you for being there and bringing out the yogi in us 🙂 every moment with you was blissful. Your presence is always with us and we seek your blessings to walk the path you have shown us .

 

First Thanks to Divine for blessed us with the Kishanji… Thank you Kishan ji for being there and being what you are.. We are blessed to have you.. “There is no difference in divine and devotee” this words becomes true when we got chance to sit in your presence.. as I found no difference in Guruji in You.. Love you so much!

 

Dearest Krishanji ,
I feel so blessed to have you in my life as my teacher , mentor , guide and father-figure. SSY was a life transforming experience for me and i am eternally grateful for your continous love and guidance. I strive daily to imbibe all that you have taught me in my life and live like a Yogi as you do. We are truly blessed and so privileged that you shared with us on courses and now , through my yoga space , will continue to share your pearls of wisdom. It feels like i’m on your course all the time and can truly feel your presence….aah what a warm and loving feeling….thank you , thank you Krishanji : )

 

Dearest Krishanji
i feel more and more privileged to have been your student and blessed that the universe has steered my path in your direction because you touched me deeply which surpassed even the knowledge of yoga which you so passionately shared with us. I wish you happiness, wisdom and that your soul continues elevating higher and higher. You have been most inspiring to me as a human being first and foremost and then as a yoga student/teacher. I am very grateful to you. THANK YOU! Jai Guru Dev


Dearest Krishanji, staying in your presence lets us understand directly what Yoga is, I feel so blessed to have You as my Teacher, the most blessed….. nothing can express….just Grace to have met You. Jai Guru Dev


Beautiful and illuminating! This is the most lucid explanation of ‘letting go’ I’ve ever had. Thank you and God bless you for sharing your wisdom and love with us all!


Thank you so much for sharing your love and wisdom with us – and the world. much love and gratitude from cape town. Jai Gurudev.

 

Dearest Krishan Ji
it was such a precious part to be accepted as a student in your courses.
Your knowledge is that deep, vast, and complete, that I would like to say,
“You are the Divine gift to spread the knowledge of Yoga on Earth.”
Thank You for everything you did and do to uplift the energy on Earth and in our souls.


Thank you Krishanji, who energized us and helped us to deal with people with more compassionate and love. Your knowledge and love is always with us : “You are a nice person” and “Be Grateful” ! 🙂

 

Wah!!! Such a wonderful knowledge to kick start our New Year. The blog is really the best gift for everyone. No wonder people say must come for courses that conducted by Krishanji. I attended only one Sri Sri Yoga Course, supprisingly I was “awake” by Krishanji’s knowledge during the course. Tears of gratitute dropped like rain water.

 

dear krishanji
my path to be a yogi began with you. i still remember the simplicity and stillness of the mind , the joy and enthusiasm i experienced in my first SSY ttc in Taiwan. over the years my mind seems to be a bit confused , cluttered , and judgemental.
this last Penang yoga retreat has brought some of the experiences back, your sharings and words of wisdom have sunken in, you are my inspiration on the path. you bring me closer to Guruji.

The 10day retreat has enabled me to find grace n gratitude in moments of my daily life. Perhaps its the spirituality of yoga at play…….honour & respect.
Krisanji has his humorous way of inculcating spirituality in us. We can always choose to “travel light” if we want, after
all there are no luggage restrictions😜
All thanks to Krisanji for his guidance and all those present at the retreat😘😍💐🍀🍁

 

Dearest Krishanji,
I am truly grateful to have been joining your courses in Penang, Malaysia for two consecutive years. I have been carrying & struggling with some impressions in my system since end of 2016. Eversince then, I had been having trouble going deep into meditation, as how I used to be. But Intensive Advanced Meditation came as a divine blessing from the Master through you.

I put forth my query to you in a paper on Day 3, and i found myself speechless when I went so deep into meditation right after morning sadhana on final day. I did not want to let go of that moment, & stayed as long as I could, savouring every bit of that divine presence. That moment revealed to me that we are all “headless”; as been mentioned by our Master.

With tears of gratitude flowing continuously from my eyes, i bowed down to the Master & HIS presence in the form of Krishanji. Thank you for being you. I also sent out the merits of this deep meditation to all sevak angels, fellow participants & the entire world.
With love & gratitude,

 

The 10 days course was really inspiring to me as I really find a new understanding about Art Of Living. I feel gratitude and blessed with love ❤, all the bhajans had touched my deepest part of my heart and mind. I can’t stop myself from remembering the rhythm and tears from my eyes, especially OM NAMAh SHIVAYA by Krishanji. The Yoga part was great too as I feel I am in the touch with it, each stretch make me feel my part of body, which part of body is weak and strong. I don’t know how to express about the gratitude to Krishanji that make me feel I am reborn on this path. I just want to say Thank You 🙏 to Krishanji for making these 10 days a memorable event in my life. As now I think about the camp, I would eventually feel that I had the tears of love and gratitude in my heart. Really thanks to everyone for making one of the best camp for me 😇

 

Thank you for all your beeing and sharing so much love, knowlidge and joy. love love love


Dear Krishanji i am so Happy to start follow you blog, you are so inspiring even if we live so far. I can feel your presence right now while i read your word. I feel so lucky to meet you in Bad Antogast during the Summer 2017. TTP has been very constructive with you i feel very blessed! i keep reading please write as much as you 

 

Dear Krishanji ,

I was a part of your therapeutic yoga retreat which just concluded today at the Bangalore ashram. I was transported to the good old days of 2006 TTC of SSY that we did in Bangalore ashram.
You made Yoga so simple. Kept telling us repeatedly not to compare, which is what we keep doing often.

Most amazing program . Extremely honoured to have been a part of this program . Please keep coming to India .
“Asatoma sadgamay”, “don’t focus too much on the body “, have had a profound effect on me.
Thanks for being you , for living the knowledge you spoke , for being our role model Yogi.

Thanks to our awesome Guruji for giving us Krishanji.

Mind Blowing Krishan Ji 🙂

 

 Life is a new journey after I met you last year. Please take good care of yourself, dear Krishanji. How lucky we are to have you in this lifetime. 

 

Dear Krishanji,

I am not a big fan of Yoga nor have I done SSY. Yoga to me is Surya Namaskar and Padma Sadhana. I came to know about you from your students from Therapeutic Yoga. There was a Google hangout with you before their therapeutic yoga course and she was bragging about how awesome and amazing you where. After the long Kriya one Saturday I happened to watch your google hangout. It touched me so deeply. Then your student shared your blog with the local Sangha watsapp group and few of your blogs moved me so much I was in tears. There is so much depth in you. Some times the words in your blog wwer exactly what I was looking for. It was so healing and tears of gratitude never forget to flow. The way you are and say what you are without feeling bad or fear about what you are, touched me so much. I wanted to write to you long back. But the words and what I wanted to say did not co-operate. Today some how I felt its okay even if I blabber or you don’t understand a bit on what I am trying to say, I decided to write….I am so grateful to your hangout and Blogs and more over for being what you are. I could not find your email ID to mail you…Hence here.
Gratefully Yours,

 

Beloved Krishanji. We are remembering you so much today. We feel so blessed to have you as our teacher. We long for be in your divine presence again, see your smile, & hear your voice again. A true yogi is rare and precious, and we feel so so so fortunate to have experienced YOU. Please come back to visit us in South Africa, we are all longing to drown in the devotion, knowledge, & simplicity that is Krishanji. Forever students who carry you in our hearts. 

 

Krishanji, I LOVE, and look forward and savour every post you write. The simplicity, love and devotion soothes my soul especially when I am in places where I am alone and it is very cold, and things are tough going. Thank you so much for sharing so much with us. Am truly blessed to call you my teacher.

 

I feel so blessed to have take the SSY TTC with your guidance. SSY was a life transforming experience for me and am eternally grateful for your love, wisdom and expertise. I strive daily to work on the asana, pranayama and meditation that you taught all of us so diligently.

Also special Thankyou to BharatiBen the medicines when I injured my shoulder on Day 10. Besides the acute shoulder pain, it also helped some of my chronic knee pain so nicely although it caused a little drowsiness which I could easily handle. We are truly blessed and so privileged that you shared with us on our courses.

 


I did Sri Sri Yoga level 2 course with you recently in Bay Area. I just wanted to express my gratitude to you for everything. 
I had been going through a challenging period in my life and it took a toll on me physically and emotionally. Doing the course with you showed me the pain free body and calm mind I used to have. It showed me it was possible to go back to it.
You rekindled my devotion and truly invoked courage in me. Right after the course got over, I ventured out to complete the hiking trail in the resort. For those who know me, I would have never done that. I used to be scared to go into nature alone thinking I would get lost, lose my balance or faint. But, this time I walked, ran, laughed and became one with the nature.
I am going to continue my practice, honor what you have taught me. I will come again to learn yoga from you, without any pain and more established in yoga….

Dear Krishan ji, I just want to thank you for making my life turn into a meaningfully yoga journey.
