“Sonal has been a very close friend and a teacher to my daughters. She has always been a very enterprising person and now she has become a mentor and saviour for a lot of people here including me. I myself have benefitted greatly with her guidance and support . I underwent a foot surgery and with her experience and advise, I recovered very well! I feel totally low on energy if I miss her class. I have seen so many of her students who could not even sit on the floor initially but after being her students were able to manage difficult asanas on the floor .They themselves were shocked at their flexibility .Since she is very spiritual she guides us in that direction and motivates us to meditate teaching us new techniques of meditation. She has a great connect with all her students and always counsels selflessly. We are so proud of her as she keeps upgrading herself by learning new practices just for the benefit of her students! Her humility and caring nature is something we all admire! I wish her the very best in all her endeavours and am greatly indebted to her for good health and a good mind! Thank you Sonal for being there for me ! ”
“I am writing to express my heartfelt appreciation for Mrs. Sonal Joshi, our Yoga Therapist of Samarth Yoga Darshan (SYD) I started doing yoga, not as a hobby but to correct my frozen shoulder, cervical spondylosis and stiff joints. She prepared a protocol, altered the asanas to suit me. Her instructions are clear and precisely expressed. She tends to the need of students making us feel comfortable in mind and body. Today, I'm free from all above mentioned problems and able to do all yoga postures and perform with help of props too. I am associated with SYD since 2013. And I take this opportunity to thank our Yoga Therapist.”
“We need to take time to make our soul happy. YOGA heals the soul. Three months back I had lots of health issues which disabled me from doing all my chores properly, but now after having joining yoga from past two months I am able to do everything with so much ease.b At work also, I am able to cope up effortlessly while emotionally I have become a lot more calmer person .YOGA refreshes my body and soul. The day I miss my class , I feel lethargic. As we need food for the body , we need yoga for the soul.”
“Sonal Bhabhi is a very dedicated and diligent teacher. She constantly works on updating herself as well as her students in the practice of yoga. She leaves no stone unturned in making her classes innovative as well as thrilling. Finally I must say she is the impetus in making every single person active in class and making sure that each one attains perfection in whatever they do.”
“I am most grateful to Yoga therapy and Sonal ma'am for teaching me yogic kriya of Jal neti. I was suffering from breathing problems for a long time. My usage of steroid based inhalers was a great cause of worry as I was getting addicted to it. Not only was i totally cured after joining Samarth Yoga darshan, but am pursuing my career as a leading caterer in Kochi.”
“I have been trying to learn Yoga from my very young age itself. When I was 19 I joined a Yoga center at Fort Cochin and learned some yogasanas. The classes were just mechanical, I would say. We were asked to do some 20-30 asanas at a strech within half an hour. For some days I attended the classes and I stopped. Thereafter again I joined another centre, this time under a Swamiji. He taught me Rajayoga, that too without understanding the basics and benefits I had to discontinue it. It was long after at the age of 54 I came to know about Samarth Yoga Darshan. My experience with this institute is excellent. With my own experience I would say, I met an Ideal Yoga Guru there, Mrs.Sonal Joshi. She was entirely different from my early Yoga teachers. First of all she was thorough with the subject. She taught us about each and every aspects of Yoga, what effect it makes in our day-to-day life, it benefits and so on. She gives much importance to each one of us, we all are individually attended. The most important quality I observe in my Guru is her oratory power. She explains everything with her own example so that we can understand it very well. She knows how to explain it. Apart from this I had an opportunity to take my Guru to my office, State Bank Learning Centre, and arrange a session on Yoga twice. It was attended by about 100- 120 participants, all employees from SBI.
“I thank Mrs. Sonal Joshi for giving me an opportunity to join this Institute. Wishing all the best.”
“GODSEND. A few years back, I was suffering from a condition, where my left hand and left leg would turn stiff and numb, especially during my sleep. I tried all types of treatment in vain. Meanwhile, a close friend of mine, advised me to join for Yoga classes in Cochin. When I look back, I am so much a happy and relieved person today, as I have got rid of my above problems and am quite energetic all day long. Seeing what Yoga has done for me, my husband and daughter too have taken to Yoga. The three of us go together every morning, like kids going to school, with our back packs, and enjoy every session. I thank God for having gone to the right place for my Yoga under the able guidance of Sonal Mam, who is a genius, well qualified, knowledgeable, patience and ever ready to help you at any time.”
