“Steve Brandon’s quiet determination is discernable in everything he does about Yoga- whether studying, practising, teaching or propagating this unique discipline. He has equal facility in both the practical and the philosophical aspects of Yoga which would help him to understand and teach holistic Yoga in an exceptional way. He has a strong foundation on Krishnamacharya’s Yoga, having studied under some outstanding teachers from Sri Krishnamacharya’s lineage. He has successfully completed my 200 hour Vinyasakrama Yoga program, and has taken part in a number of workshops and training programs in Vinyasakrama and Yoga Philosophy. He is a very good organizer and has successfully arranged several programs for me in UK. And I wish him well in all his endeavours in the field of Yoga.”
“Steve Brandon from UK underwent the 200 hr TT program several years ago at LMU. He also attended my programs in Chicago and then in New Delhi India. He has been teaching Yoga for several years and his Harmony Yoga has been successfully functioning for 10 years now. He judiciously combines his yoga knowledge with his Ayurveda background and makes himself doubly useful to his students/patients. He has arranged programs for me in UK for several years. He was keen that I should teach in the UK several of the subjects taught by my Guru. I have been able to teach Hatayogapradipika, Samkhya Karika, Yoga Sutras and the Bhagavatgita. As this would be my last trip to UK for doing long extended programs, I wish to thank Steve for affording me the opportunity to teach these subjects for his Harmony Yoga. He not only organized these programs meticulously but also brought in very dedicated and keen participants.”

“I have known Steve since September 1999. He was very taken with (what was then called) Viniyoga, and went on to study extensively with me. Thus he has had many individual sessions over the years, as well as attending group classes, and Viniyoga Study Programmes. He completed an Introductory Course (5 days), a Foundation Course (10 days) and then the 4 year Practitioner Programme with Paul Harvey.
Steve is an unusually dedicated practitioner who really loves yoga – he is absolutely committed to his own practice and continues to develop and explore yoga. He has worked with one of TK Krishnamacharya’s students, Srivatsa Ramaswami with whom he explored Vinyasakrama as taught by Krishnamacharya.
I have no doubts about Steve’s abilities as a teacher. He is organized, diligent and a good communicator with a passion for the subject. Steve has been thoroughly trained and continues to develop and refine his knowledge. He is able to teach both therapeutically with appropriate modifications etc (raksana/cikitsa); but also in a more traditional and uncompromised way (siksana).”
