what people are saying about Shaik Hakeem

Michael Mullins

It gives me a great honor to write a few words in-regards to Hakeem and his higher yoga teaching. I was fortunate enough to gain from him and allow me to learn and experience Raja Yoga. I first met Hakeem in 2003 as I interested in learning a spiritual yoga not the commercial yoga that a lot of people in the western world are into the physical ones. From the moment I met him and continue to do his classes initially in a small group but for a long period it was one on one classes where I was fortunate to grow in my understanding and practice of Raja Yoga. Got several experiences including Kundalini awakening. The benefits I gained within a short period of time were incredible and my life improved so much - I continued to do yoga with Hakeem and the small group of students for a number of years. - I still find the yoga breathing and meditation is so powerful and beneficial. I still continue higher yoga practice (mentored by Hakeem) and do it when I have the opportunity blending with my day to day life. I will be forever indebted to Hakeem for not only his generous giving of knowledge on Raja Yoga but also as a dear friend and mentor.

Dr Shaik Hakeem is a very knowledgeable yoga teacher. He provides individual attention to his students, tailored to their needs. He helps to build the confidence to progress in their yoga path at every step. Dr Shaik Hakeem has tremendous patience, gives his students the mental strength they need to move forward and helps them see that he/she can achieve more than they think they can. Dr Shaik Hakeem's positivity, care and encouragement towards his students is commendable. I couldn't have accomplished this far in my yoga path but for Dr. Hakeem.
