Susanne Christensen: I'm Susanne from Denmark. I'm 55 years old and have MS, Multiple Sclerosis. I got it in 2001 and from the very start I have gone to ayurvedic treatment in India or Sri Lanka once a year. Every time I had yoga along with the ayurveda, but in 2012 in Oceano Cliff in India it was something exceptional. Because of the yoga teacher Arun Thankaraj. He had the utmost fingertip sensitivity to give me exactly what I wanted. At that time I needed to find out, why I had got this MS and every day when he came to my terrace (I couldn't walk upstair to the yoga-room, so he came to me) I asked him a lot of questions. He answered me so wise, far beyond his young age, he gave me hope again, taught me the important yoga Nidra and a lot of excellent yoga exercises, that I still do every morning. He is the best yoga teacher I ever had, and I have had a lot. I warmly recommend him.
For more than one year I have been taking part in Arun's "Early Bird" Yoga class. Before getting to know Arun, I had tried to integrate Yoga into my life several times. But only when meeting him, I found the real and true approach for me personally, and I have since made significant progress in my physical awareness and mindfulness in my daily life. In Arun's class every student has the oppportunity to learn and do yoga on their own terms and personal speed. Due to his empathic and individual way of teaching, everybody is able to be there without the pressure to succeed or be perfect. I feel lucky to have found Arun as my yoga teacher and his lesson each week is always a highlight to me. Thank you, Arun!
