"Here is sampling of what my beloved student say. I am ever so blessed to have them take this amazing spiritual journey with me. I thank them for their courage and strength in doing the self-work. And all the laughter, fun and joy we had while at it!" ~Yuri Dhara
Yuri teaches you so much more than how to meditate - she teaches you how to go about your life in a way that is happier, fuller and with greater awareness.
Many of the things that I have come to accept as truths about life are truths that I have discovered through my work with Yuri. She is an amazing person and teacher who is deeply giving, generous and dedicated to her students.
Yuri brings an insight into life that is honest, straightforward, and deeply spiritual.
No matter what aspect of your life you bring to her she is able to show the "big picture" and how all of it ties together. She can help you unleash from a world of doubt and uncertainty and shift out of fears and anxieties into acceptance and the beauty of living in the “now."
Best part is that all of these things happen so quickly when you work with her. She was born to help people and she does it brilliantly!
~ Dean LeBlanc
Yuri has a sense of understanding I have seen in only few. Meditating has been profound and her influence on my life has been even more profound.
~Cory van den Bossche
Yuri has an incredible intuition about what it is you need.
She doesn't preach a particular religion or philosophy, but instead draws on many disciplines. She is an amazing teacher - her approach is practical and pragmatic.
I now have a fabulous meditation practice, and my life has dramatically improved. I feel more peace of mind, more strength, more focus and confidence.
~ Greg Arnold
The best way to describe my time with Yuri would be to combine the best of meditation, therapy and friendship. Therapy sessions in the past showed me why I became the person I was, but they never showed me how to be better or happier.
My time with Yuri set the foundation for a very positive future of self-awareness, accountability, emotional stability, and happiness.
For that I will always be grateful.
Working with Yuri opened me up to spiritual exploration and feelings of contentment and clarity that I didn’t know were possible!
After several failed attempts of group classes and self-guided meditation when I met Yuri and heard her simple yet exciting explanation of meditation, I knew I found the right teacher.
I was drawn to her compassionate and practical approach and she has taught me skills that I’ll have forever.
~ Kim Crane
I was lost and broken when I came to Yuri. I finally met someone who understood the loss of self I felt.
She's simple, to the point, and encourages that any situation, seemingly hopeless or destitute, can be alleviated. She showed me problems can be solved with ease and how to walk the simple road to peace of mind, void of suffering.
She is someone who will eventually change the direction of the world, one person at a time, if you allow her.
~ Vanessa Bartlett
I thought I was going to learn meditation to improve my concentration- but found that it was the most inspiring experience of my whole life.
Yuri led me to become aware of my own self and discover my potential. The course proved to be a pivotal moment in my life.
~ Gregg Sharkey
Going to the Introduction Session, I sensed Yuri’s genuineness.
The financial obligations were a concern for me, but she ensured that it was not a deterrent. The course has given me a great sense of inner peace, a realization of living in the present and true appreciation for letting go.
~ Ashley Williams
I don’t quite know how to express my gratitude for this program. Thanks to Yuri's individualized teaching approach, I have a stronger sense of self.
I started meditating because I really needed to manage my stress. I continue because I know it works and has become my path to feeling confident, successful, happy and better relationships.
~ Maricruz De Aza
I cannot speak highly enough Yuri's practice and I can assure you that you won't want to go anywhere else for meditation after you've seen her.
Having never been to meditation before, I was unsure of what it would be like, but I quickly learned that Yuri's passion and her holistic approach meant that meditation with her was much more than simply concentrating.
After meeting with her for only a few times I was able to focus my thoughts and find out what it was that I really wanted in life. For me, problems dissolved and a whole new life direction evolved.
~ Elizabeth West
At that time I started my work with Yuri, I was going through a very painful and challenging time in my life.
With her caring and persistent guidance, she helped me gain clarity by making me confront my deepest fears, which were blocking me and preventing me from moving forward in my life and finding my true self.
~ Patricia Meausone
To be honest, I was a little skeptical at first because I used to be a worrier and I really didn't think anything would help my anxiety. Taking this course was the course best decisions I've ever made.
Yuri is very patient and has an inviting spirit that really is something out of this world. She has a wealth of knowledge and guided me to finding greater purpose and live a more fulfilling life. Since I started this process and I have been so happy and peaceful with everything that I do.
~ Shannon Beck
I came to meditation because I was diagnosed with cancer. Without surgery or chemo, my cancer is in remission. I truly believe meditation is the driving force for my healing.
Yuri's guidance has provided me inner peace, happiness, tolerance, more self-expression and seeing myself in a whole new light. Learning to meditate was the easy part, Yuri's insights and coaching is where the magic happened. She sees my higher self where I see my humanity. I aspire to see myself through Yuri's eyes.
~ David Warren
Taking the course has been a joy. Yuri has a way of breaking down all your problems in simple terms and then helping you to change them.
I learnt to meditate and learnt to how to look at everything from a perspective which completely changes how you experience them. I feel very fortunate that she came into my life at this time.
~ Nari Sitaraman
I walked into the Intro feeling "stuck” and was immediately drawn to Yuri’s genuine approach.
I took away a deeply peaceful meditation practice and the shift in my life has been nothing but monumental. It has brought so much joy into my life. The course has been invaluable and I am truly blessed for finding my teacher in Yuri.
~ Erin Johnson
I think we all know how vast of a challenge it is to become the best we can be. I came to the course without any major problems, but rather in a search for something greater – more purpose.
I’ve realized that there is no better or easier way than through meditation and spirituality. And though I am far from where I plan to be, my path is now clearly laid before me and I cannot wait to continue my work with Yuri.
~ Adam Sansiveri
Yuri's program is a wonderful, life-changing experience.
I had been intrigued by meditation for years, but Yuri helped me discover the depth of meditation and taught me a real practice that I can use every day. I've learned so much about myself and know that I have the power to make positive changes and seek clarity with little effort.
I've made so many shifts, big and small, since starting her program, and know that I will continue to do so using all of the lessons she has taught me.
