I still hear Alpesh’s voice in my head as I practice yoga, 2 weeks after returning home from a week’s intensive in Bhagsu. His unique style of “tough love” challenged me to exceed what I thought was my personal limits in yoga. By the end of the week, I was definitely stronger and more determined to be properly aligned in the poses. Although he demands precision in alignment and your greatest effort throughout the class, his sense of humor and kind heart endears him to all his students. He is extremely approachable and willing to assist or accommodate students if they are having any difficulties or issues. I also benefited very much from our pranayama and chanting sessions which were heart opening, to say the least, and healing for the body and mind.
