When I first decided to learn Vedic Meditation, I didn’t have much faith that this new technique could improve on the clarity and honesty of the mindfulness meditation that I’d been doing for years. But I was surprised to find that Vedic Meditation delivered a huge range of benefits, the most significant of which was the complete ‘cure’ of my asthma that I had lived with since I was six weeks old. As long as I continue to meditate twice a day, I am symptom-free. The practice has also helped me to think far more clearly which has made my life more manageable. Joh is a very clear, down-to-earth teacher who has been particularly helpful in encouraging me to keep it simple. I also appreciate that over the years she’s remained available as my teacher for questions and check-ins whenever new questions arise.

”Learning to meditate with Joh was simple, but profound. The benefits have been a greater sense of being grounded in my body and spirit, rather than living in the chattering mind. My relationships, both personal and professional have greatly improved and my clarity of thought and ease of self has strongly evolved.”

The appeal for me was its simplicity. It’s not hard, there are no guidelines about how to breathe or how think during the meditation. For me, it was this simplicity that was most appealing to me with such a busy, stressful life.

The daily meditation practice has made me feel focussed and productive while calm and reflective.
My sister had been telling me forever I should learn Vedic Meditation but I didn’t think it would fit in my hectic NYC lifestyle. I was extremely worn down by some key relationships and I felt depleted and out of touch with myself.

Learning was simple and pleasurable and Joh is a relatable, straightforward, inspirational teacher. Joh moves at your pace and when you are ready for it, there is always something more she can teach you. 

Since I learned meditation, I have a stronger sense of confidence and peace, I look forward to meditating twice a day as a time of solitude.  I feel more able to tackle the challenges ahead of me, as well as able to enjoy the here and now.

I also feel an incredible sense of support from my meditation practice and from Joh personally.

I actually am pretty surprised and proud of myself for picking up this “habit” and sticking with it.  Habits are not easy to make and this is effortless and so rewarding.
Joh is a clear and compassionate teacher whose devotion to her practice shines through. I’ve been practicing now for a couple of months. I’m content with the world as it is now .... even better, I’m at ease in my own skin.
