Workshops in 2009

Self-Transformation through Yoga” workshop at European Commission – Belgium (October 2009)

“I had the opportunity to be part of “transformation trough yoga” weekend in Brussels with Prasad. Although I practice yoga since many years, those two days were a different experience for me. Prasad is teaching more than just yoga, his work goes beyond the asanas, goes deeper, it’s a life style. I was truly touched by his teaching, and so happy I could be part of this wonderful practice. I’m deeply grateful to Prasad.”

Yoga Workshop – Munich
May 2009

Few months ago I started a new life with excitement. But I felt “lost”, I was crying with no sense and I did not know what was happening to me. I met Prasad a month ago. All his words touched my mind. He was like a guide who taught me how to look at myself, how to accept myself and how to grow with Yoga. I put in practice all he taught us as a daily routine. Now, I can say that I have stopped crying, I feel confident, I am stronger, I feel good! Prasad offers you support, his wisdom… he has a special place in my heart.

Yoga Workshop, Bergen, Norway

We, the staff at the Nansen Center, had the pleasure of being taught Yoga during a week workshop in May 2009 by Prasad. He is an outstanding teacher of Yoga, including motivation. He got us very interested in the wisdom of Yoga, and got us highly motivated to continue doing Yoga, so that we can use Yoga in our work and science, which includes important problems dealing with climate and global warming.

Hip Opener Workshop – Bangkok
April 2009

“Prasad’s ‘hip opening’ workshop in Bangkok was a beautiful balance for the mind, body and spirit. Prasad is an excellent teacher. For the intellect, he delivered a comprehensive lecture on the hip joint and its importance. He worked our bodies with the hip opening asanas. As a spiritual mentor Prasad connects with his students of all ages, abilities, nationalities and spiritual awareness. What an enlightening, joyful and healthy experience attending his workshop! The best gift I could give my stressed seniors for graduation before they go off to university would be a weekend workshop with Prasad and a CD of the practice of Yoga Nidra.”

Yoga Retreat – Cunoor, Tamil Nadu, India
March 2009

“A newcomer to the world of Yoga, I was a little apprehensive when asked to join the retreat. Not knowing what to expect and having no idea what the retreat would entail, I agreed mainly because of wanting to get to know better my newly found girlfriends, whom at this stage I was becoming very fond of. That and of course a degree of curiosity.

I am not sure if mere words can describe the experiences and discoveries made during the Retreat. There were 5 of us, and I believe that each and every single one us connected to Prasad personally. The most wonderful guidance, we unlocked and let go of the past, we embrace the now. A lesson of ‘Detachment’, we let go of our emotions such as anger and hatred, we learned forgiveness and Love. Love towards others and most important Love towards ourselves, to learn how to receive as much as we give. ??I came as a guarded person with walls protecting me, a heavy baggage and allowing only certain few to view the innermost vulnerable me. I left with crumbling walls, although not completely gone, pieces are going down all the time. Prasad you showed the way on how to forgive not only other people but to forgive myself. I came away with not new found friends, but four sisters of the heart. I left a better person, a person who has love, courage and spirituality.

As I write this, tears are flowing, these are not tears of sadness, but of all emotions in me and the realisation of how much you have done for me. How does one thank and show gratitude you, Prasad?”

Love always,

Stress Management Seminar – Mumbai
January 2009

“In one of my first contacts with yoga, I participated in a stress management seminar with Prasad, which was an enriching and inspiring experience. With his  unique approach to yoga, mixing gentleness, sense of humour and clarity of explanations, Prasad provided us with the ‘tools’ and directions to effectively improve stress management through yoga. No doubt, this seminar was a success, and we were grateful for Prasad showing us the way!”

Nicola Bowen @ Stress Management Through Yoga Workshop, Spain

“In a time busy with material success, unreal issues, a mind flooded with ceaseless thoughts my inner core is asking for inspiration and healing and my fortunate path leads me to meet Prasad Rangnekar.
Prasad’s pure energy, calm state of being, great sense of humor and charisma make his mere presence an experience of inspiration and motivation. Living very much in this world, embracing technologies and tools of modern society, Prasad shows us, how to integrate the teachings and practices nurturing the true self into our busy lives, so that there is no border, no cliff between practice and life.
Cleansed, weightless and purified I emerge from this practice and carry the experience and it’s teaching in me. Grateful to my teacher and the endless wisdom of the teachings I wish for all beings to share this practice.”
