Your chakra balancing course is really wounderfull. The Idea with check up of horoscope to understand my chakra problems I found firstly sceptic but as I saw the result after excersises I really appreciate your work. I hope I could come back to Vedansha next year and maybe with my wife. Thank you."

    "Yoga therapy is the adaptation of yoga practices for people with health challenges. Yoga therapists prescribe specific regimens of postures, breathing exercises, and relaxation techniques to suit individual needs. Medical research shows that yoga therapy is among the most effective complementary therapies for several common ailments. The challenges may be an illness, a temporary condition like pregnancy or childbirth, or a chronic condition associated with old age or illness."
