"Yogi Jim said that the practice of Kundalini Yoga had life altering capabilities. In my six decades of existence I heard that claim made so many times about so many things, I dismissed this as one more empty promise. However, in a short time things began to happen: Three articles I wrote were nationally published. During routine medical and dental checkups, the doctor and dentist wanted to know what I was doing because some degenerative problems had reversed themselves. Life's challenges, when in the past overwhelmed and exhausted me, I just shrugged off. Unlike some disciplines which impose change from the outside, Kundalini Yoga strengthens the inner core of mind, heart and body. The energy created radiates outward as true healing and authentic power."
"Only the best yoga Teachers can make the practitioner experience individual benefits each and every class. Yogi Jim really knows how to do that. I always leave his class with my mind and body deeply relaxed, aligned with positive energy and balanced." ~
"My name is Frank Vitale. YogiJim and Kundalini Yoga changed my life. A bold statement, I know and absolute truth. Three years ago at age 35 I had no idea what Kundalini yoga was, I had just come out of a divorce and knew that some real soul searching was at hand. With no intention other than to go to the gym and work out I walked into my first Kundalini class with Yogi Jim. The experience had a profound impact on my life. It has been 3 years; I've practiced Kundalini yoga 2 to 4 times a week and am in the best physical and more importantly, emotional and spiritual health of my life. Kundalini yoga has helped me to balance the often hectic and chaotic realties that many of us face on a daily basis. I am a self-employed digital artist, often working extremely long hours on large film, TV and video game productions, with very high demands both mentally and physically. Holding schedules like I do, personal time spent looking inward is most important, to remaining emotionally and spiritually healthy. The practice of Kundalini yoga has provided me a personal vehicle for growth beyond what I'd imagined." ~
"For me, Kundalini Yoga is a way to cleanse my body of all the toxins and stresses of the everyday world. I prefer this form of yoga over other types because I find that it really makes me healthier both inside and out. I have been taking yoga classes for about 4 years now and I have definitely had the most fun in Yogi Jim's classes. He really is a calming and thorough Teacher and he also makes the class very fun. I often find myself laughing and smiling to myself in his classes. I always leave class with a smile and a happy feeling that often stays with me for days." ~
"I have tried many styles and types of yoga and
have found that your Kundalini yoga classes give me the best mind/body
connection. Yogi Jim's combination of yoga and meditation provides me the
stress release I need and opens me to new possibilities." ~
"While performing Yogi Jim's Kundalini Yoga practice I used to have discomfort all over the body but gradually I learned to observe that a big part of that discomfort is created by my own mind which says "give-up, you are having discomfort!"
Certainly one has to recognize between the state of real discomfort where body is getting hurt and the state where it is just our mind that is telling "you cannot do it, give-up," even though we can do it. With practice of Kundalini Yoga I learned to observe my mind-created pain and developed strength to go through it. Being this self-observant also helped me in my day-to-day life, in facing more challenges and taking responsibilities." ~ Sarang Ingole
"Yogi Jim's Kundalini Yoga class has helped me develop greater self-awareness. His inspired teachings have helped me renew my spirit and my health! In truth and with strength and gratitude." ~ Don Solomon
"I have been practicing Kundalini Yoga with Yogi Jim for two years now and it has changed my life. I've always been a 'Type A' personality, with constant thinking ruling my life. Kundalini Yoga has taught me to quiet the mind and to live in the moment. In addition to the basics of yoga, Yogi Jim has taught me many philosophies that apply to everyday life such as patience, mental strength and internal healing through meditation. I see a huge difference in my stress level if I happened to miss a class. I go and get 're-centered' as soon as possible. Yogi Jim is an amazing Teacher with such positive energy that I look forward to his fun and invigorating class every time. I plan to continue practicing Kundalini Yoga throughout my life and it has peaked my interest in other Eastern teaching and holistic approaches to life." ~ Rebecca
"I first started taking Kundalini Yoga classes a little
over a year ago from Yogi Jim. I had been practicing Hatha yoga at this same
club for over a year and I felt pretty confident that I knew all about yoga and
the benefits of practicing on a regular basis.
Needless to say, I was quite surprised (and pleased) after my first class that
we hadn't done any of (what seemed like) the limited variety of postures that
we had been repeating over and over again in my previous yoga classes. This class
was not at all what I had experienced in the past but I was intrigued enough
to come back the following week to explore these new ideas and see what else
I could learn from Yogi Jim.
He said that we would reap the rewards as long as we practiced the kriyas with
integrity and an honest effort. Thank goodness for the endless amount of kriyas
to choose from as it keeps things fresh, interesting and sometimes, amusing!
I continue to draw on what I have learned to help me through my day and to deal
with all sorts of people in my everyday life. Sat Nam," ~ Karri Kurtzweil
