what they're saying

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.
