Student Testimonials:
“Pashupati (Steven Landau) has a wealth of knowledge from his many years of studying and experience.  But one of the things that makes him a great teacher is his excitement in sharing this information. He’s truly interested in helping his students become all they are meant to be — physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Whether he is teaching anatomy, teaching how to teach an asana, playing his guitar and leading kirtan, listening to students’ problems, or discussing the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, he is right “at home.”  It’s a delight to be in his class and to learn from someone who is a true yogi and child of God.” Namaskar, Carol Allen – 2009 graduate

Dada Pashupatiji has shared his vast expertise in the field of anatomy, physiology, psychology and yoga philosophy of the classical Ashtanga Yoga and Ananda Marga schools of yoga.An additional advantage I got is to get my thirst for spirituality quenched here. Dr. Stiven Landou Being a doctor by profession we trainees had added advantage to understand anatomy physiology and get answers to our full satisfaction.Didi Ananda Diipika has taught me all the asanas thoroughly, providing an alternative version for each asana along with contraindications. Safety aspects and do and don’t in asanas class taught was excellent.They are full of wisdom, relevant experience which they share abundantly with we students.
