Bani’s teaching is truly inspirational. She radiates a positive energy and her classes allow me to bring my mind, body and spirit back into balance. I look forward to every session!

Practicing meditation with Bani for me has literally been a life changing journey. I have discovered more about myself in the past year than in the last 30. Every week I take a pearl of wisdom from my experience and insert it into my daily routine. It is an everyday commitment and the results for me have been nothing short of magnificent. Just that one hour a week balances my mind with my body which helps me feel reawakened  and grateful. Thank you Bani for helping me rediscover myself.

Meditation Class

Though I’ve used meditation off and on for years, Bani’s weekly group meditation experience introduces me to a variety of different types of meditation techniques.  It has also inspired my commitment toward daily practice.

For me, Bani’s use of guided imagery and visualization techniques often result in new insights about myself and my relationships with others, as well as an increased clarity of my own person path toward spiritual development.

At the very least, by the end of the hour, I always gain a deep sense of relaxation and renewal, which I carry with me when I leave.


My experience with Bani’s Journeydance was amazing.  A welcoming, non-judgmental environment invited me to express myself freely.  Combining beautiful music, meditation, and dance, we were guided through a journey of of self-exploration.  My personal experience was truly moving.  It led to profound insights, and the ability to see things from a perspective I never knew existed.

I could be having the SH*TTIEST day in the world, then come to Banni’s guided meditation and miraculously my wholeness calms…. it’s crazy!!!

I remember once I had missed some weeks, I was really busy and running around feeling like life was just sucked out!! So I set the intention to “just Do It”…. Banni’s meditation that night was about setting the inner spirit free peeling off the layers of stress we put on ourselves…. It was profound!!

In my head, I could literally feel my inner spirit just fly free… she was beautiful and it felt so amazingly peaceful…. I was like WOW… (only a slow version …. like woOOOow!!)

That is one of many AHA moments I’ve had… Your classes, my friend…..have offered me a library of them to go to as needed..I am blessed by your gifts. Much LOVE!!

Bani, my experience with you has been absolutely live changing. I’ve experienced migraine relief, increased range of motion and relief of fibromyalgia type symptoms. What’s more, your meditation guidance has given me peace and gratitude.

BTW yoga was AMAZING last night. Just what I needed!

Developing a meditation practice with Bani has been so helpful to me! Letting go of unconsciously chosen, unhealthy patterns of thinking, and replacing them with consciously chosen positive ideas and affirmations  is definitely the way to go! Taking time to relax, restructure, reboot, rethink, and thus rejuvenate, is a practice shared by many. It is a stressful world, and our first reactions may be to feel anger, fear, disappointment, hate, and resentment. The list goes on.

With meditation, I can clear out and replace those feelings with peace, hope, love, acceptance, appreciation, and gratitude. This list goes on!

When we are not in the shadows, we can shine brightly.
