"Tears ran down my face tonite as I thought ‘my teacher has had more commitment to me than I have’. Your consistency and continued support are a gem that I am forever grateful for.
Thank you so much, for all of the ways you have touched my life, uplifted me, and helped my heart to relax and heal (bit by bit)."
"Your teachings since your return from India are even more profound than before. The concepts are the same but your communications are simpler and more direct, which helps me take better notes. And what I learn seems to sink in even deeper. Although I have been studying with you for almost 10 years now, I find your recent classes feel as fresh while providing an excellent refresher, which will allow me to convey the same simplicity when I teach and serve my clients with Face to Grace."
"Thank you Ana Karyn for giving me the capacity to see the beauty in my life. I am so happy, so full of joy and so grateful for what I'm experiencing. Thank you.
"I just wanted to thank you so much for an excellent session today! It was extremely valuable to me and I was amazed how succinct and accurate you could put positive and true words to my feelings! It feels so much better now, even if the road is still long and windy, but as they say, even the longest journey starts with a single step..."
"Thank you so much for my session last night. I am so honored to be your student and to be fully under your guidance. Today I feel totally allowed to shine and be in my radiance, thank you for mirroring that for me. I am so deeply touched by your love and your grace and so grateful for being given the opportunity to be embraced by your beautiful Light.
With deep gratitude,"
"Thank you for the gift of your love and commitment to me and all of us that have been supported with your caring attention and guidance. You are a treasure!"
"Thank you for loving me and showing me, one step at a time, how to love myself.
"Thank you for encouraging, growing and investing in the Centre for Living Arts, in the community and in me as a student, web seva, mentor and Art in Gibberish teacher/facilitator. Feel very blessed to be able to serve them and share in the teachings you have invested. They expressed such gratitude afterwards. It's so uplifting to observe and participate in the gift we all are being given. Thank you Ana-Karyn for your abundant teachings, energy and compassion. May it continue to flourish and be bestowed to all who come in contact."
"Your wisdom has always been an inspiration along with your clarity of action. Thank you. You are inspiring to me."
"The work I have done with Ana Karyn over the past seven years has been the most enlivening, uplifting, and emotionally balancing work that continuously inspires me to be the best person I can possibly be. The yoga and breathwork, combined with her amazingly intuitive capacity unceasingly brings me home to myself. I am so very grateful for all of the gifts which I have been given and continue to receive."
"What I appreciate most from Ana Karyn's teaching is the personal contact, where masses are not in the way, even thought I know many people receive and take refuge in her presence and teachings. I still feel a close availability to her, meeting me in my process...step by step. Our contact is a knock at the door of my heart to help me remember who I really am.
It seems the world is blessed to have a few people who can radiate and embody something much deeper and more powerful than can be seen or described with words. Where and how she has found me is a blessing, and having the opportunity to grow under such a teacher always brings a downpour of gratitude to my eyes."
"My Teacher, Ana-Karyn, patiently teaches me the path to my inner freedom. Over and over, she continues to lift the illusion of my stubborn patterns and unconscious conditioning. Her teaching on the divine relationship that God and me are One is the most profound life-changing truth I have ever experienced. I am learning that I am truly responsible for realizing my God-given destiny and the pattern of putting it outside on someone else is fading a little more each day. I am truly blessed to have her guidance, compassion and unconditional love to reflect and realize my self-mastery, my true name.
Thank you for showing me the way, and for being my teacher, my friend. With deep gratitude,"
"Ana-Karyn is the perfect example to follow for she really walks her talk. She is a constant mirror, a constant reminder of what is real. Her touch is so subtle yet so profound. Her teachings are so simple yet so full of wisdom. Her compassion and care, her sharpness and firmness make her the perfect Teacher, a real Guru-Dev Mata."

"The combination of mental reflection, active yoga and silent meditation have penetrated deeply. Have noticed that I am more willing and able to take time to reflect on the teachings during the week with the tools she offers weekly. Her teachings have increased my awareness of the barriers that exist between myself and my practice. I am very grateful for her teachings as they promote balance in my life, increasing calmness in any arising chaos and steadfastness in my practice. It has been a gift and priviledge to learn from her and grow from the knowledge she has imparted to me and many other students over the last 6 years. Her ability to form a community of devoted & commited students has been a strong foundation to growing her student's maturity on many levels (communication, interpersonal relationships and service)."
"When I take classes with Ana-Karyn I am always led to the SACRED. As life has a way of distracting me from the sacred, then i loose FAITH. The classes ALWAYS bring me back to feel FAITH again and a sense of the SACRED nature of the Divine. I cant say 'how' this is done but it is done! I always recommend classes with Ana-Karyn to people who are 'searching'..."
"Ana-Karyn's teachings are a light of hope in a dark maze of learnt behaviors, reactions to thought and emotion as well as personalized perception of reality. She puts us back in touch with our true Being, stripping the many layers we tend to build, to protect ourselves from our deep rooted fears and insecurities. Being in her presence clarifies our intent, our path and our actions. We may still fall into the traps and patterns we've always known, but being aware of these traps, we can learn to bypass them or spend less time struggling with them as we focus on building our inner strength. Ana-Karyn is a bridge to rediscovering and reclaiming our true Nature."
"Ana-Karyn is a special teacher. She's an art teacher, a yoga teacher, a spiritual teacher, a life teacher... So wise, so profound, and at the same time so fun no-nonsense and down to earth. Always with the precise words, knowledge to shake us inside out.... With something new, exciting and moving to keep us working on our path... What a gift !"
"Thank you thank you thank you
That was wonderful! In the past I would have related to Nicole in a completely different way! That session was informative, fun and invigorating"
"Thank you for your ceaseless guidance and multitude of unfolding blessings Ana-Karyn! Without out your presence this soul would be lost and frozen in fear. Thank you for melting the ego and presenting opportunities to continue to shake, grow, deepen devotion, serve, die and become more awake/alive/real."
"Ray of beauty
ray of light
ray of sunshine
ray of night
you have blessed me in many ways
dancing with you in the afternoon
listening and singing to Dibi Dibi day
in poetry I live
and in fondness I remember"
"I have been a student of Ana-Karyn's for 7 years now.
This is the most honest, unconditional relationship I have ever had. Ana-Karyn doesn't always tell me what I want to hear. What she does tell me is the truth. For this I am so grateful. Knowing the truth creates the space to transform darkness into light. She speaks directly to my soul. At times, her directness cuts like a sword, so swift and merciless. Behind this is share compassion. She sees all of my potential and will stop at nothing to wake me up to see this too. Ana-Karyn's presence is joyful, playful, radiant and uplifting. I am no longer the shy girl who showed-up on her doorstep years ago. I am blossoming into a radiant, self-confidant woman. If I could condense her teachings into one sentence of reflection, here's what it would be: The two greatest gifts we have are our smile and our breath...breathe, relax, smile and celebrate!"
"Just wanted to say from my mom and family our deepest heartfelt thanks for everything you have all done. My mom is doing well and I will try to continue to make the Kicharee for mom because she has done so well on it. She attributes the healing soup and her own personal efforts to her well being today. The love that went into all the special deliveries and the goodness of the food itself has helped mom turn the corner and for that I and my mom forever thankful to you all. We have a thank-you card and a donation that I will eventually get to Ana-Karyn expressing our graditude for your very kind and generous help."
"A thousand thank-yous for this weekend. Thank you for replenishing my soul with grace, clarity, ritual, and growth. I am forever thankful of your service. I feel my service to humanity calling greatly, and our work this weekend has strengthened my commitment."
With Ana-Karyn’s weekly meditation, I feel much more inspired to go to work and face the world. I understand more about my problems and I am a better person."
"Meditation is like a fresh breeze in my week. After the class I feel recharged, inspired and happy. Thank you Ana-Karyn you are so simple and you certainly guide to my centred core."
"I am so present to my life after meditation. My body is relaxed and I don’t feel so agitated. My mind is now friendly to me."
"I now have many powerful tools to cope with situations when
I am upset physically, emotionally and mentally. In fact, I find these
tools most useful when I am willing to change my attitude to accept
the here now. Ana-Karyn is the toughest, yet the best teacher I have
ever had. And if what she says is right: "the teacher is a reflection
of the higher self," ultimately, I must be a darned tough, excellent
"I have developed self discipline, compassion, a sense of inner strength and much broader appreciation of what my life has to offer to the world. The program as well as all the monthly activities have also contributed greatly to the sense of community and belongingness that I now feel."
"I feel much more grounded and balanced than I used to be
and her promise to integrate my mind, body and spirit has become
a reality. My spiritual practice deepened immeasurably and my awareness
and connectedness to life has heightened. I handle stresses of every
day life with a greater ease and the work I am doing with Ana-Karym
is so profound that it enabled me to face and accept the death of
my daughter. I know that the best advice Ana-Karym has given me
is CELEBRATE LIFE."
"Bomba nights have been a Bomba! It's helped me re-connect
deeper and deeper with my higher self. Thanks to Ana-Karyn"
"I enjoyed the play and the interaction. Good to
be in a spiritual place and make contact with others."
"It is so wonderful to access different ways of knowing : through
body, mind, emotions, music, breathing, movement ...and very few
words. Tremendous learning!
"So much fun while simultaneously moving so much stuff! My
chakras have never been happier!
"Inspiring, surprising, fun, connecting, weird, mystical, peaceful,
