"Elvira, I don't know where to start, but to say Thank You! The universe shows its wisdom, encouragement and magnitude in so many ways and I want to publicly express my gratitude.
Since coming your yoga classes, I've learned and experienced much more than I intended. What started as a curiosity about Kundalini yoga, has turned into an acceleration of self discovery, affirmation and self love. I'm not a beginner, but it has been some time since I'd practiced what I thought was yoga..and I was looking to reset my mind, body and spirit.
I met you in March 2017 at the Toronto Yoga Show...and it took me 4 months to finally get myself to your studio! But once I started, I was hooked. It's been a month now, and I'm attending most classes and have seen nothing but positive results.
Your Mississauga space is very intimate, calm but enchantingly healing. I always felt very welcome, even when new to the chanting, and diversity of your classes...I went in concerned after time without yoga that I faced a learning curve, but every class I’ve attended has been completely surprising, different, and magical! I’ve sat through sessions where we shook, chanted, sang, repeated the same arm movement for 10 minutes straight!! And depending on how the class feels, you sense it and throw in some hatha or gentler set to keep it fresh.
Yes, it was a little strange. But the one thing I’ve found, is that it seems to have awakened some sort of inspiration and spirit within me. SatNam. You explain everything very well, the deeper teachings, the relevance of our chakra energies. But you are also very real, and down to earth teacher. We all enjoy sharing, laughing and being in your presence. Personally, I feel like I've gone on an all- inclusive retreat, as you also incorporate music, health, diet, positive affirmations, soul talk, and the incomparable "Yoga Nidra" which in itself, is worth its value in gold!!
Thank you again for sharing your light. You are a gifted natural spirit healer to humans and animals Elvira. I am grateful to know you and looking forward to much more bliss!!!
"I first attended my class in the summer and it was also my first time taking kundalini yoga. From the moment I walked in, Elvira was welcoming and she truly is an amazing teacher and person. I had been going through a lot at the time and had was looking for a way to better myself and my life. Her class has really helped me and I have found a new love yoga. I'm so grateful I was introduced to kundalini as its now something I look forward to every week. I highly recommend it for anyone, especially in today's day and age where stress and time for ourselves is something we forget to do."

“I've never taken yoga classes and this was my first venture into Kundalini yoga. I look forward to Hari Inder’s classes all week, given her knowledge and passion for this yoga. She greets us with a warm smile, gentle disposition and is always considerate of her students. I suffer from neck and back issues, but I participate at my own pace and have noticed that I’ve regained some flexibility. In the last few years, I’ve noticed that my sleep patterns have been misbehaving, however, since starting yoga, most nights I have uninterrupted sleep. Her classes serve to replenish my physical energy and my sense of hope and joy in my life. If you’ve never taken yoga, this will be a pleasant and welcome surprise for you.
Hari Inder recently offered a learning event where she provided fulsome information on detoxification. I realize that I must make some lifestyle choices to truly benefit from the process. I’ll take small steps such as seeking out organic produce, trying some recipes and avoiding certain foods. It’s all a journey!”

I have just began the Kundalini Yoga class with Elvira Hari Inder ND this past summer and was unsure about the outcome. Being new to yoga class I wasn't quite sure what to expect, or if it would benefit me in ways of getting a workout. Well, it definitely has made me feel better, relax more intensively with my breathing and really FOCUS on my breathing/mind. It is an amazing workout because the next day I feel my arms and legs with similar pain as if I would do a 20 minute workout/going to the gym. Elvira, is one of the kindness instructors you'll ever meet who strives to make you feel better internally and externally.
A Satisfied Client,"
"Making no effort to enlighten myself on this latest Yoga venture, only a ten minute walk from home, I decided to participate in at least one of Dr. Elvira's Kundalini Yoga classes. Lo and behold, I was instantly hooked to this newest challenge of self-change for the better.
Dr. Elvira's Yoga classes normally focus on one theme generated to aid specific areas of the body, rating each Yoga session unique. Prior to each pose, Dr. Elvira verbally explains the health benefits each posture serves to invigorate the body, mind and soul, while at the same time physically demonstrates the pose. Elvira really rocks it!
At the end of each class, I leave feeling either, recharged, exhausted, relaxed, or totally inebriated. The walk home has become something truly special. I am learning to appreciate it.
Dr. Elvira's classes are never boring, yet challenging, and no matter how tackling the poses, I thoroughly enjoy braving each pose. Every class is a unique experience. Dr. Elvira really works it.
Since putting Kundalini Yoga into practice as part of my "fixing myself up" goal, I've noticed a slight change in my emotional behaviour. I recall waking up one morning, feeling a sense of peace. I never wake up that way. Normally, anxiety rapidly kicks in, and I start muttering negative one-liners to myself. "Oh Happy Day!" I'm rarely hurting my morning self these days.
I truly thank not only Dr. Elvira, but my niece, whilst staying over with my family during the summer, wanted to go to the park. On the way to the park, I discovered Dr. Elvira. Thank you."
"I have been going to Elvira's yoga classes twice a week now for approximately seven months. I initially thought that I would just try it out and see how it goes; however, Elvira's welcoming and encouraging personality along with the comfortable atmosphere has made this something I have chosen to commit to. She not only takes the time to get to know each of her clients, but she also makes it a point to describe each position through the class and how it will contribute to our overall health and well-being. She is very knowledgeable & gives us the opportunity to work at our own pace.
I sought out yoga in order to not only manage my shoulder condition, but to find a way to overcome and ongoing heart condition. My doctors had told me to try and reduce the amount of stress in my life; otherwise, my options were a lifetime of medication or heart surgery. After a short time of attending Elvira's yoga classes, I started to notice a difference and was symptom free. After leaving class, I feel rejuvenated! It feels good to spend some time taking care of myself in a peaceful and tranquil environment where I can truly focus on healing. My family and friends have also noticed a difference in my overall attitude and physique, which further motivates me to continue.
Elvira's yoga class has truly changed my life for the better. Before this class, I thought that the discomfort of my heart condition would overtake my life. I did not feel like myself and had little energy to do my daily activities. Now, I feel energetic, motivated to continue and am so glad that I have conquered my symptoms. I recommend her class wherever I can because I know that whatever the reason, whatever the ailment or challenge someone is facing, this class offers an opportunity to learn, heal and work towards a goal of betterment. Thank you Elvira!"
“I have started Kundalini classes for the first time with Elvira Hari Inder Kaur since October 2012. My background yoga is Hatha since 2004 and really enjoyed the classes and found them empowering. However when my friend Elvira explained to me about Kundalini Yoga, I did not understand the true purpose…until I attended the classes. The first few classes where a bit daunting as I wasn’t into chanting out loud and I thought it was a religion, but as I persevered with the classes I then began to understand the true essence of Kundalini yoga. I felt the changes within by body and seen how much inner and outer endurance I developed and not to forget inner peace and tranquility. I never thought sitting down and doing repetitive movements with a particular breathing exercise can aid in healing oneself. And this is why I enjoy and encourage everyone to get involved in some sort of Yoga class. You need to at least attend 5 classes to begin to understand the benefits of yoga and it’s positions.
“Since I have been attending your yoga classes, I feel more relaxed and I am sleeping much better at night.
Thank you for introducing me to yoga. I really enjoy it and will continue to attend your classes.”
"Thank you, for your e-mails and this is a note to let you know how much I appreciate the information you include with each of them.
They are very helpful and I am getting a lot of knowledge. About the YOGA, it is perfect - first of all close to home. second the classes I have attended are very beneficial for my body and mind I have recommended to my friends."
“I have tried several Yoga classes over the years but always either lose interest or find too difficult and feel pressure from instructors to go beyond my capability. I suffer from fibromyalgia and also have difficult doing exercise due to a past leg injury. To my surprise, I really enjoy Elvira’s Kundalini Yoga class. Elvira is patient and understanding and doesn’t pressure me but rather, encourages me to try or shows me how to modify the technique. I have surpassed my own expectations in this class. I never thought I would enjoy chanting but I feel comfortable enough in this class to participate. Elvira is knowledgeable and explains the benefits of Kundalini Yoga throughout the session. I feel more energetic now doing this type of Yoga. A great class and I encourage others to attend.”
"After being diagnosed with degenerative disc disease in my neck I decided to try yoga classes with Hari Inder. After the first few weeks I noticed a big improvement not only in my back and neck, but also in my joints and my flexibility. I have found these classes to be a great stress reliever and I always leave feeling rejuvenated."
“I have been going to Elvira Hari Inder’s yoga classes for the past 6 months. Each class is a new experience. The exercises are easy and mediation very relaxing. I always feel refreshed and calm when I leave. I look forward to each class and wish I could go more often as it has relieved a lot of my stress and anxiety . I have learned so much from her classes; breathing exercises, self-talk and to set positive intentions each day. A big 10 out of 10 for these yoga classes!”
"Elvira is an amazing teacher, practitioner & person. Dedicated to the care and support of each patient/student with a wealth of knowledge to treat all conditions.
A friend recommend Kundalini Yoga and I was lucky to find Elvira. I love these classes. I have taken other types of Yoga in the past but this is the absolute best. I felt the positive affects after the 1st class and now on my 6th class my body & mind together are truly healing."
"I have been attending Elvira’s Kundalini Yoga class for about a year now. Initially, I found that my clarity improved and I became more aware. Recently, instead of participating once per week I have been going twice. Since attending more often, I have experienced a newfound confidence, speeded up in some areas where I was sluggish and my body is starting to feel more alive and stronger. I have greater movement in my spine; and in the hip area where I had great difficulty. I wasn't sure when I began this Yoga that it was for me; however; I have continued because I find it very beneficial – not only physically, but mentally, emotionally and spiritually."
"Hari inder's Kundalini Yoga classes are truly a delight to attend. Her charming personality combined with her abundance of knowledge and passion make for a uniquely uplifting experience. I always leave feeling better than when I came. Even though I was completely new to yoga when I first started with her classes, she made sure I felt comfortable and offered many variations of each exercises to fit any level of practitioner. In addition to the great physical challenge offered there is something unique about the practice that fills your heart with warmth and love every time. I am very much looking forward to continuing my journey of self discovery and improvement with the help of Hari Inder's classes. I would highly recommend attending one of her classes. I'm sure you'll quickly fall in love see the benefits in no time, physically, mentally and spirituality. All while enjoying a peaceful environment and great company."
I've been taking Elvira's yoga classes for 2 years. She is one of my favorite yoga teachers. I continue to come back to her classes because she is genuine, creates a positive environment for her students, teaches them to respect their individual abilities and yet is not afraid to challenge them to work through blocks to progress in their practice. Her classes are a great mix of the various styles of yoga she offers and she is always open to her students' feedback. She's amazing!
Women's Healing Circle 2019
"Through the women’s circle communication I learned how to share openly in a trusted environment my life experiences. I could let go and open up about the obstacles I faced - very powerful emotional release.
I gained amazing support, tips, and thoughtful opinions. Elvira and the women in my circle make my week brighter.
"I would highly recommend participating in the Women’s Healing Circle once a week for six weeks. It was my first experience in a Healing Circle. I felt the healing power and benefits of the collective energy of the group, while being supported to grow and strengthen myself.
The healing happens in a safe, calm and reflective environment while each participant is able to share their point of view with others and not be judged. Each session was gently guided by Dr. Elvira Gesummaria (Hari Inder Kaur) and the dynamics of the group was such that we easily bonded week after week. Every week we had a mutual intention for the group and you could share as much or as l little with the group. [Intentions: Trust, Anger, Forgiveness, Who am I etc.]
I would definitely participle in future Healing Circles offered by Dr. Elvira Gesummaria (Hari Inder Kaur), as it offered me solitude and retreat, while simultaneously respecting the group’s therapeutic process. The healing was multi-dimensional with focus on the physical, emotional and spiritual healing of the self, while helping others discover themselves, in the presence of loving kindness.
Thanks to my newly found "Healing Circle Sisters" for listening and caring for me, in my vulnerability, while participating in the sessions.
I always looked forward to the dancing and relaxation, as this allowed me to reflect and celebrate the loving of the CREATIVE ME!!!"
"Thank you very much for leading our 6 week women's circle!!
I feel very blessed and privileged to have been part of it. I felt very comfortable expressing and sharing my thoughts and feelings with our group. The women were all awesome. They were open and very supportive of one another and brought great energy. .
The weekly sessions were relevant and resonated with me. The environment was relaxed and fun!! You know how much I love to dance. Thank you for allowing me to share the Nia technique with everyone!!
Congratulations on your first women's circle series!
I look forward to future sessions.
“I gained a strong sense of belonging when I attended the woman’s healing circle. Every session in the 6 weeks was filled with a variety of song, movement, sharing, liberation and meditation. I was comforted in a group of like minded women, who to my surprise we’re going through many things that I could relate to. Elvira offers a safe and warm environment for her workshops. It’s so much more important in this modern time for women to connect and Elvira’s classes are the perfect setting to do so.” Kat
Detox Workshop 2013:
"I really enjoyed your detox workshop. I found it very informative and full of knowledge and do-able approaches to starting out to a better path of detoxification.
Your examples of what you do yourself, enabled the audience to identify and realize that we all can make changes to a better life
style just focusing on one thing at a time.
The diversity of age group in the audience also allowed opportunities to share important issues at specific points in a person's life, that others may have not thought about yet, but will soon get there with time and wisdom.
Your style of presentation is just YOU! I love it! It expresses who you are as a person, individually and in your highly trained profession.
Your honesty when answering questions was appreciated. If you didn't know the answer to a question, you also told us.
Looking forward to Detox II Workshop!"
"Great workshop, very informative.
Excellent presentation. I think the information presented was clear and concise.
I was very surprised at the amount of toxins bombarding our bodies on a daily basis."
I found the detox workshop extremely informative. I can tell that your are very passionate about what you do and I will definitely attend any of your future workshops.
“The detox session lead by Elvira was very informative. The handouts provide for future reference. She served a delicious assortment of food and made a delicious tea. Thank you for a very delightful learning session.”
After Second Hypnosis session, Issues with Anxiety and Insomnia:
My energy level is high and I feel much more relaxed. Even my girlfriend noticed, she said "you are different". Also, I'm not reacting to dad's drama and I don't get sucked into it. I had 2 good night's sleep. Whatever you did I sure hope this feeling stays with me! One more thing, the elephant that was on my chest is gone. I can finally breathe and be who I am. There was lots and lots of releasing, I feel much better and more relaxed. I can't thank you enough!
FP, Toronto, April 2015
Through hypnosis with Elvira, I was able to dispel and let go of some negative emotions I was holding on to. She is able to ask the right questions to help you breakthrough any blocks. I highly recommend working with her, she's absolutely great!

"If you have ever wondered about Reiki definitely give it a try at least once in your lifetime! It is a gentle way to detected and remove blockages + move emotional toxicity from the physical body & from the mind. It has huge therapeutic benefits and Elvira is a truly amazing Reiki practitioner!"

"Just had my second reiki session. I found the first one left me with wanting more, however not understanding WHY? I had a shoulder pain for about 4 months. And there were days of severe pain, and some days it was bearable but always THERE. After my second session , a couple of days later I was reminded of not feeling that pain, WOW I thought, where is it?
It's now going on my 4th day and I'm shoulder pain. It's wonderful.... Trying Reiki will never hurt .....it will only HELP. I encourage everyone to try it!"

“I recommend trying the Reiki sessions with Dr. Elvira. She is wonderful. I have had 4 sessions with her and each time I feel something shift within me. I am a worrier and have a tendency to hold feelings inside which was making me feel depressed and withdrawn. I have found the sessions an emotional release. I feel a sense of calm and peace after each session. I now wake in the morning happier and with more energy.”

"Hi, I would to tell you all about my experiences from the reiki treatments. First, I feel more relaxed and less reactive to stressful situations, my body feels less pain, I have more energy with better sleep, there has been a shift in my thinking and I am receiving what I need. My girlfriend has noticed a change. She said 'you're not as demanding or nervous as before'. So I would strongly recommend reiki treatments from Dr Elvira - very positive experience and life changing."

Body-talk with Elvira offered great insight into some underlying physical issues I was dealing with. Working with her helped me identify some food allergies and since I have removed those foods from my diet, I have seen an improvement in my health. She comes to each session well-prepared and is enthusiastic about truly helping her clients.
