” Being a fitness freak, I used to think that one can keep their body fit only by hitting the gym. But Jeevana Yoga changed my perception. After going to the gym, I would feel very tired and drained throughout the day. This also made my body stiff, rigid and heavy. But after I started practicing Yoga through Jeevana Yoga, I feel very energetic, light, flexible and have become very active. I don’t believe in learning Yoga through short courses that offer certification. It should be practiced daily and should be a part of your life. There are very few gurus who can enlighten you and make you connect with that knowledge. I am very fortunate to get Shri Arun Prakash Acharya as my Guru who is one of the best Yoga Gurus in the city today”
“Personally Yoga practice has made me connect to my inner self. I have realized that feeling good inside the body and mind provides overall feeling of well being. It is a stress buster . It has made me stronger and I feel more energetic. I have started to love things around me and this experience cannot be expressed in words. I have started eating what is required for the body. Yoga is so handy and it can be done anywhere . Even when I am on vacation!!.
Indirectly I have started to feel more in tune with the spiritual being within me. There is a great self- awareness that I have started to experience. Earlier, I was suffering with intermittent back pain post delivery. The immediate benefit worth mentioning is that yoga helped me to prevent this by strengthening the back and enhancing its flexibility. In the long run it helps in balancing hormones which is very important for women after 30’s.” Kanchana
“My sciatica manifested as a burning pain that started right from my neck and radiated out at the calf. I lost full range of motion and could not bend forward. Sciatica being a nerve pain, one cannot massage it to make it better. Despite many pain killers and physiotherapy, I had absolutely no relief. I was in agony and it seemed to get worse at night. So I couldn’t sleep either.
In the absence of any relief from allopathy and physiotherapy, I approached Mr Arun Prakash from Jeevana Yoga. With his yoga therapy I found a lot of relief on the first day itself. In two weeks time I was completely fine and also was able to travel to the US.” Kalyan Kuncha
“I joined Lifestyle Yoga on Feb 28, 2013. Frankly speaking I always felt yoga was really boring with very slow moves and it could not make me sweat but thanks to you, you really proved me wrong. I love the way you teach me classical yoga which is customised to modern day lifestyle. Within one month I was able to loose 5 kgs and the credit goes to you. I have become more flexible, gained a lot of stamina and feel more energetic. Hope I achieve my target of losing more weight this year and have a healthy life ahead. Thank you Lifestyle Yoga for your constant support.” Tarun Kumar
“I started practising with Arunji for over 6 months. Every class he conducts is different in way that you will not feel you are doing the same thing that you did yesterday. After the basic asanas and exercises, he tailors each class to the mood of his students and the environment around. He also offers various other health tips and guidance for individual problems. You should just try his class for once, and you will feel the change it makes. Thank you Jeevana Yoga!”

“It has been 1 year since, I have been learning yoga from you. Your class is a perfect balance of meditation and physical endurance and you teach in such a relaxing and therapeutic manner, that we hardly realize how hard we are working. You guide us through every step in the class and each class I feel that I am stronger and able to work harder than the last. I could certainly feel the difference in my body and mind after each session. It is truly incredible how something so soothing as yoga practice can tone and strengthen your body, especially in places most other forms of exercise neglect. I also enjoy the tips on food habits & other topics which you provide daily.”
“For the workshop I went with an open mind. Even then I was sceptical about the benefits or its potency. But the four day workshop has shown me the many ways I can open my mind to possibilities which were unimaginable before. I used to get such an adrenalin rush running 12-14 km, or such bone weary satisfaction swimming for an hour, but just by lying down and calming my body and mind, I have truly experienced the Sublime Ecstasy that Acharya Arun Prakash promised in our very first meeting. I feel I am at the right place at the right time in order to do what I am meant to do on earth.”

“I have been going regularly for the daily practice at Jeevana Yoga….and there has been an experiential difference since the early days and now. I managed to do the back bend with Acharyas help on the very first day of class, which I thought was brilliant, but now I realise that yoga is not about doing back flips or head stands, it’s about being able to go in and out of one’s body and mind at will and with ease. Its about closing one’s eyes to the world and going into the deep recesses of our mind and body. It helps that there is no pain at the end of the work out and one feels recharged rather than drained.”
