What my students say:
Thank you so very much for helping me in my time of healing! After surgery, I was nervous about returning to the gym - even yoga practice. A couple of friends recommended I try private yoga sessions to ease back in, so I met both of their teachers - one being you. Because of your kindness, understanding, and background in the medical field, I felt comfortable immediately.
Sessions with you while I was healing were exactly what I needed to regain my confidence and get back into exercising again! Thank you for being such an essential part of my life during a time when I needed you!

As a type A person, I have always known that I needed to achieve some balance in my life. A friend suggested that I try some yoga with Madhavi and her Prana Health practice.
Madhavi provides small, welcoming classes for all levels of experience. There is no judgement. Just warmth and friendships. I have learned meditation, stretching, core strengthening and balance ... both in body and mind.
I have discovered a new way of living and have a new family of friends.

Madhavi’s classes are for all. The teachings are based on your own comfort level; keeping you building on your own strengths while encouraging your mind, body and soul to reach balance and peace. It is something you should experience.
Sharon- Vinyasa and Kudnalini Student
Returning to yoga after years of not practicing, I wanted a teacher you could solidify my fundamentals while taking me further. While my practice with Madhavi is still new, I'm so glad I found her! She's very attentive, detailed, gentle, honest, and super planned. The studio is serene and an inviting place. Overall a great studio with a lovely teacher!

Uzma - Kundalini Yoga Student
I have never taken a yoga class before, but Madhavi’s welcoming nature and careful instruction put me at ease in her studio right away. Madhavi takes the time to ensure that you are holding the poses correctly, explains the benefits and suggests modifications when necessary. Besides the physical benefits I reap from her class, I also enjoy a sense of calm and stress relief. Her studio is a place I look forward to returning to each week.
Joan - Vinyasa Flow Student
Madhavi is an excellent and versatile yoga teacher. She's familiar with many styles and she teaches each of them with grace and precision. Her warmth, humor, and love for her students permeate her classes, and she excels at creating a cozy, safe, and healing space for all her students.

Sucheta - Kundalini Yoga Student
Prana health is a small and welcoming environment.
Madhavi is an effective, knowledgeable, and personable instructor. She provides a judgement free setting while also encouraging self awareness and happiness. I have had my best experience of practicing yoga in the past 3 years at Prana health! Going to Prana health classes is like going to a friend's home. I highly recommend Madhavi and her studio to everyone.
Roya - Vinyasa & Kundalini Yoga Student
Madhavi is an amazing instructor. She explains yoga positions really well. Her background in sciences is very helpful in teaching yoga techniques and understanding the basics of yoga. I highly recommend taking her classes and experience the true essence of yoga.
Rabia - Kundalini Yoga Student
The first thing that you see when you enter Madhavi Rao's yoga class the atmosphere of utter calm. That feeling carries over from when you first walk in all the way through your practice, and, eventually, when you reluctantly leave the patio doors. Nestled in the quiet suburbs, this calm is, yes, cultivated by Madhavi, but ultimately, the serenity is woven in and between the foundations of the studio.
But that's not to discredit the teachings of Madhavi in the slightest. As much as the serenity contributes to the experience and environment, Madhavi's mastery of the art (and science) of yoga does as well. Madhavi uses ancient and modern science to make sure that not only do you understand how to do the exercises, but how the exercises impact you.
Indeed, both Madhavi and the studio create an experience that captures a certain, almost unattainable bliss.
