My work with Larry Farber and Ramesh Bjonnes was far more valuable to me than any time I spent in rehabilitation or outpatient facilities.
Larry is a superior yoga teacher and a talented therapist. He took into account my frailties and disabilities, got me into yoga, as much as I was physically capable and I throughly enjoyed it.
My friend Barbara has taken many yoga classes and so have I, and we both agree that Larry is an exceptional teacher. The more of his classes I take the more evident this becomes.Not only is he entertaining, but very knowledgeable, committed, caring and dedicated. He has a real gift for making the postures understandable in terms of what they can do for the body and why. This is the main aspect missing from classes I have taken before.
When you are involved with an Integration class or workshop, you have entered into a world beyond Hatha yoga postures. The integration of mind, spirit and body serves to improve all areas of your life…well beyond the time you spend in the class itself.
They say that good things come your way when you least expect them..that is what happened one Monday morning when I walked into Larry’s class for the first time. It was the beginning of an incredible journey filled with bliss and contentment.
I turned to yoga out of curiosity and to improve my flexibility…what I discovered with Integration Yoga changed my life. 50 lbs. weight loss, incredible gains in flexibility and strength, plus a surprising lift in my spiritual and emotional well-being.
“In those 30 days, I lost 25 pounds. And not only have I kept off every pound, I even came home and lost 10 more. Now if my weight starts to go up a little, I just juice for a while and the weight comes right back off.”
"As a person who is experiencing diabetes, I feel motivated to move forward on my way to perfect health. I did not take meds while here and my blood sugars were within normal range during the fast."
"The world is blessed to have Prama Wellness Center! I am deeply grateful to have had the opportunity to complete a 5 day detox program. The experience is life changing and to be able to be here with such support, care love, and joy makes it possible. If you are ready to embrace change – visit Prama!"
"Before [working with Ramesh Bjonnes], I was in poor shape. I didn’t have any flexibility, I had sore joints and a sore body, and I had been told I needed a knee replacement. Today, without any surgery, I am feeling good and walking eight to ten miles a day. I even signed up for my first half-marathon! And I have lost over 50 pounds."
