Testimonial from Dayaram Institute of Holistic Healing & Sciences- Bharat Heritage Services:
“In my teaching career of last 6 years I had taught many students around the globe at Rishikesh which is known as Yoga capital of the world and where many serious yoga aspirants come to seek the real knowledge in its spiritual environment, but I never met with
any serious student like Charu. And she was already a teacher and teaching Yoga. I was surprised that she was so keen to learn more.
She has so much energy that she learned all very quickly. She did Kundalini / Tantra Yoga Courses with us and taken intensive classes and practiced full time. As good students look for good teachers so good teachers also find good students to impart his knowledge to right person for the benefit of humanity. I found all that in Charu.”
