Testimonials

Yoga is such an ancient practice, at times seemingly too complex to understand, let alone master, because of its depth and its roots in antiquity.  Yet, Big Shakti makes it so modern and available to all of us, regardless of whether one is a beginner or a teacher. Big Shakti takes yoga, with its many facets – philosophy, postures, breath, psychology, health and lifestyle, and puts it in a down-to-earth, user-friendly format.  As a counselor, I have really appreciated deepening my understanding of both yoga and Western psychology, and I have seen the value this brings that to my clients.  In addition, what makes Big Shakti really valuable is the integrity, sincerity, knowledge, skill and warmth of Swami Shankardev and Jayne Stevenson.  I can ask them anything and know I will get accuracy, experience, expert knowledge and wisdom. I have made a pledge to myself to attend every course Big Shakti offers.

Big Shakti’s study programs provide a path to enlightenment and a practical yet highly spiritual means of attaining a more aware state, wherever you are in your own development. Both Swami Shankardev and Jayne support your growth and learning in a safe, loving environment where questions are seen as part of the learning. The structure of the theory has given me the basis on which to build. It has helped me to understand so much about my life and the lives of those around me. I feel supported and held.

Big Shakti’s online programs are planned with extreme care and knowledge and they are valuable tools for self-study. They are easy to follow, and they always make me feel as if the teacher is in my mind, knowing my needs, and what I want to explore. Either it is a meditation, a Yoga Nidra or a program about facing our shadow, or discovering our life’s purpose, their quality and power is unique.

My absolute trust for Big Shakti’s team, that derives from all the benefits I’ve enjoyed since I started practicing its beautiful methods. It is very comforting to have the possibility of choosing a grounding meditation when feeling agitated, or the facing the shadow meditation when having the need of looking deep in my soul. What I like most about Big Shakti’s work, is that they provide knowledge and experience in a structured way, with care, love and, yes, empathy. It is like having a trusted friend that helps you when needed.
