Yoga actually brought my Weight back to normal and I think that helped me eventually get rid of PCOD. Though I also believe that it never goes completely as even in my pregnancy I had a few small harmless cysts somewhere in my ovaries or so...! Actually yoga also reduced my other symptoms / side effects of PCOD like mood swings, abnormal menstruation etc...!, Akanksha
The best way to lose weight, is to loose wisely and sensibly!!! That’s what I have learnt from this weight loss program organized by you thereby proving the famous quote “Eat Wise, drop a Size” correct.
Dear Smita Ma'am
Thank you again, Smita, for this program. It is the third time I am doing it, and I wanted to do it this time for the overall experience, positive energy and healthy lifestyle. Even though I have been following the principles since I started it two and a half years ago, this time has given me a renewed push. I am hoping to follow/continue the diet and exercise plan all through the summer months. And thank you, Smita and others, for ending the program today with such a warmly-prepared meal and for the good cheer!
Dear Smita,There is so much to think and say that I don't know where to begin! My mind and heart are full; my mind with all the things I have learnt and my heart of gratitude to you for teaching me with so much love, patience and encouragement. If someone were to ask me what were the most important things I took away from the course, they are a tremendous feeling of empowerment and of awareness. I can honestly say that in my long life, I have not often felt this sense of excitement. I am empowered because I have gained so much valuable knowledge, and am now aware of what I can do about it.
They say, old habits die hard. Thanks to the weight loss program so well directed by you, it took me just one month to kill most of the bad ones and adopt all the good ones. The result is there for everybody to see. I lost 7 kgs from 85 to 78. My waistline has reduced from 37 to 34 inches. My double chin has almost vanished. There is a tautness in my face I always dreamt of. Thighs, hips have all reduced. Old tight jeans thrown away in some corner of the wardrobe have come back into fashion. Now I like to wear what clings to my body. More importantly there is greater strength in my arms and legs. I can now easily move heavy furniture, quickly run up a flight of stairs and do my asanas with increased flexibility. For someone who turns 47 next month and is nursing a heart damaged from hypertension, I could not have asked for more.
I have so much to say and write but im unable to find suitable words to thank you and cant express my feelings for what you have done for me and changed my life….I found a very good friend in you apart from my yoga teacher…
If I look back, past in times, struggling with various pains and of course the weight, my meeting with you has changed my life, my attitude towards my own body. Thank you very much madam, for making me aware of my own strength. I am grateful to you for your constant encouragement, every time when I fail to lift my feet (may be my mental block and not the weight or the strength in my arms) during shoulder stand or praising some position during surya namaskar or helping me with additional exercises to overcome the aggravated shoulder. This weightloss programme has not only made me loose 5 KGs of weight, but also got me rid of bad habbits.

I was fascinated by the weight-loss achieved by students in your various weight-loss programs and often wondered if your program will help me as I have been physically active,practically all my life, including 3-5 km run about 3 times a week and about 200 sit-ups and the works!I am amazed at not only the quantum of weight-loss but also its speed.

I still remember the conversation we had about this programme over phone and I mentioned that the fee was too steep for just 10 classes.You told me that the fee is nothing compared to the benefits I would be getting from the programe. Y ou were right, at the end of the programe, I have managed to lose 6 kgs which I initially thought was impossible as I have been weighing 73 kgs for the last many years. Apart from the exercises which will continue to stay with me,this programe has also managed to change the unhealthy lifestyle I was leading.It has taught me patience and the will power to abstain from all things unhealthy.
I started with a weight of 94kg and ended the program with a weight of 87kg. After continuing the exercising at home and in college I am currently 82kgs. The program taught me a. Self control which i never thought i could do. b. Built confidence in myself. c. Sharpness and presence of mind d. Built my patience e. Helped lower my BP f. Improved my agility
I joined your yoga class in June 2010 and since then i have been practising yoga regularly. After few months, i joined the weight loss programme while continuing my regular yoga classes.When the programme started, my weight was 79 Kgs. I reduced my weight by 6 kgs by the end of the programme.

Thank you so much for this wonderful 4-week yoga and weight loss detox program (September 1-30, 2012). I lost 10 kgs in this time and discovered a much healthier lifestyle with the exercise and diet prescribed. I quickly adapted to the meal timings and rules of the program and felt a lot more energetic.
Thank you very much for being my Guru, I am glad that I have Guru like you in my life. What I learn from you I will never forget.
For me weight loss programme is very important because I am going to marry in November till that time I want to be slim want to reduce more and more weight,
And I am very happy with my body after joining your programme, it’s not only about body it’s about inner feeling, about my soul, how much relaxed I am after your classes.
Joining weightloss programme has changed my eating habits a lot. Now I don’t feel like eating junk with my friends or family. This was my second weight loss programme. In first one, I lost 5 kgs and now I lost 4.5 kgs. So from 60, I have reduced to 51 kgs in two weight loss programs. Thank you Ma’am for your motivation.
This is my first yoga programme. I lost 7.5 kgs. The diet plan worked well for me.. I feel fully detoxified. The first day of the class. I was totally down with body pain. But slowly and gradually my stamina increased and practice became easy. I am grateful to you to help me in this manner and hope to keep losing more weight. Raynil John
After joining the weight loss programme, I have seen a dramatic change in me. I have more stamina. My family is also very happy. Thanks a lot. Shyamalima Baruah
Dear Smita Madam,
For the last 18 days, I am practicing yoga with you. My body is feeling like a feather. Whole day, I feel happy and relaxed. Every night when I go to bed, I look forward to attend the morning yoga session. Smita you are my first and best yoga teacher. I am enjoying with you. God bless you. Shanti
I sincerely wanted to lose weight and this programme helped me a lot. In the first week, it was difficult as the diet was regulated but second week onwards, it worked and the motivation was only to lose weight. I am toned and energetic now after losing 5 kgs in these 10 classes over a month. I am extremely happy and thankful to Smita for introducing me to this programme. Thank you. Shivani
