“I learned yoga from Mr. Sanjay Patel when I attended his yoga sessions with other students in India. I also attended his teaching sessions in the USA in 2004. He taught the asana, forms of pranayamas and meditation based on Patanjali Yoga in a highly skilled manner to novice and experienced alike.
Mr. Patel’s teachings have made me a better student of Ayurveda which I grew up with and learned from Dr. Vasant Lad of Pune and Dr. Partap Chauhan of Jiva Ayurveda, India, who are revered Ayurveda teachers in India and abroad.
A dimension about Mr. Sanjay Patel that may not be known at all is that he lived as yogi for many years. Vedic habits of fasting on certain days, daily worship, sacred rituals, pranayama, yogic exercises, and active detachment from objects were part of his every second. Mr. Patel breathed and lived Yogic Tradition.
Mr. Sanjay Patel has recently written a book on relationship of spirituality and God – a very scholarly research. I believe his writing is a great asset to practice of Living Yoga and Yogic Living as it explores the spiritual dimension.
I strongly recommend Mr. Sanjay Patel to anyone who wants to learn yoga in depth with the spiritual dimension. It will be a personal gift of lifetime.”

“I have personally attended Sanjay’s yoga and meditation sessions. They are life transforming. He is experienced, learned and articulate. I’ve been to various teachers, but Sanjay has a fine blend of knowledge from mainstream medical studies and ancient wisdom. Highly recommended. His powerful stress reduction meditation has changed my life.”

“Meeting, Mr. Patel individually and learning about two strongest aspects of yoga: meditation and pranayama (breathing exercise) has impacted my nursing practice in the most positive direction.
Being born and raised in India had always given me the privilege to learn yoga from elementary school. However, I will be honest, the clarity of understanding and teaching yoga by Mr. Patel is beyond compare.
I am so blessed that I had this great opportunity to have crossed paths with Mr. Patel. Mr. Patel has tremendous knowledge about all the aspects of yoga and he made me realize that yoga is not just stretches and poses but way beyond. I have realized through his teachings that yoga is the path to meet the higher power. I have enjoyed the peace and unconditional joy through the practice of meditation and pranayama.
Mr. Patel has many years of experience in practicing and teaching yoga with some of the great yogis in India; but his humbleness makes him a great yoga guru.
I have implemented his teachings in my practice by conducting meditation group at my hospital. My clients are young adults who are struggling from ADHD, substance abuse, depression, anxiety, and mental stress. I have seen great results in their recovery due to the introduction of this group. I have seen great results with ADHD patients and who are doing great with their performance. This has also helped addiction patients from relapsing in their recovery.
I am so excited with the certification program offered by Mr. Patel; I know for sure I am going ahead with it. Learning from Mr. Patel has helped me to grow individually and professionally.”
