"If indeed Jyotisha is one aspect of a sublime oral tradition, it is incumbent on all students to learn the pronunciation of its key Sanskrit terms. Nicolai Bachman's CD is the most useful pronunciation guide that I've come across. I recommend it highly"
- Hart De Fouw
"I highly recommend this excellent CD and booklet to students who are learning the proper pronunciation of Vedic Astrology terminology."
-Dennis M. Harness, Ph.D. Past President, American College of Vedic Astrology
Nicolai Bachman exceeded my expectations! He is very talented and articulates each individual sutra extremely well. I really enjoyed the examples he provided which relate Patanjali’s teachings to modern society. The instruction was very clear. Nicolai addressed any questions or concerns directly, which was helpful. The eight limbs were presented clear and concise as well as the yoga poses in Sanskrit. I look forward to learning more from Nicolai. The way Nicolai applies the sutras to modern day society is amazing.
