"Hi John! The lecture was fabulous! So interesting and informative!!! I really LOVED it! It was very useful info. I am running a weight loss workshop and was able to share so much with them from your teachings. I would love another call on detoxing the body.
"Hi, John! I'm the studio manager of Heartland Yoga in Iowa City, Iowa. I listened to your teleseminar yesterday and found your teaching so clear and practical. I think many of our yoga students are ready to learn about how they can incorporate Ayurveda into their daily lives. Would you be interested in teaching a seminar at Heartland?"

"thanks so much for the wonderful class last night! Learned a lot and it's good right now for me to hear some things again and again, it's sinking in. You have a very light and playful way of presenting and you're funny! Makes the material, especially in an evening class, very easy to digest (hey, nice pun, eh?)!"

Nutritionist - Hot springs, NC
"John did a wonderful job in presenting completely new concepts to a varied group of students, answering questions patiently and clearly. I felt like a whole new world opened up for me, one in which my body can and will be healthy. It is attainable more easily than I initially believed. It brought back the knowledge of wholeness which can so easily slip further and further into the background with our busy lives and non-supportive patterns we find ourselves in. John's teachings about balance also reminded me that the responsibility to heal myself is in my own lap, no excuses!"
"John's passion for food, cooking, and assisting others is absolutely contagious and his kind, gentle way of teaching the principles of Ayurvedic cooking make it easy to fall in love with them. I personally was very inspired by the workshop and look forward to continuing this process of learning and getting well."
"Thank you so much for last night's class. The food was absolutely delicious and the wonderful chutney you made topped it off. Thank you for making and sharing that! Your teachings are so insightful and passionate, it is obvious that you walk your talk. I'd probably attend the same class again, it was a really, really good introduction overall."
"Yes! I throughly enjoyed the Ayurveda Workshop and look forward to more. The material was relevant and comprehensive to my goals. I found the material concrete and practical. I think you are skilled and informative regarding Ayurvedic teachings. I am thankful to have people like yourself commited to helping and teacing this fine medicine. I have already pasted the information to others to come to learn more. Thank you and we will meet again..."
