“Janani makes the vision of Vedanta approachable and accessible to students of all levels. She encourages inquiry as part of her unfolding of the teaching, making the classes lively and engaging. I’m truly grateful to call her my teacher."

"Vedanta is a large body of texts composed in Sanskrt. Janani has a meticulous style when she unfolds this learning in the most comprehensive manner. Her ability to deliver this message from one text to another without hesitation is remarkable. She will captivate her audience and while engaged, feed them the nourishment of this knowledge with tremendous, thought provoking words, comparing the ancient lessons to today's current events. Janani's wisdom has been supportive in my life and personal yoga practice, opening the vision to be aware of staying the course with balance and clarity."
"Studying with Janani has been a blessing and a privilege. She is an extremely well-versed, gifted teacher of Vedanta. Her delivery is clear, filled with simple, down to earth, yet powerful examples that help grasp the concept of consciousness and that really are relative, but certainly not limited to our emotions, attachments, our physical body and all that happens to us in the course of living a full life. Her teachings help me live with greater awareness and I look forward to our sessions with great enthusiasm."

" I received a yoga teaching certification from The Kripalu Center and in the course of teaching yoga classes would attend other types of related sessions from time to time. At the end of one such session, Janani Cleary was introduced as a meditation teacher. She explained how and why meditation works in the context of a yoga practice. Listening to her, I entered a new space of curiosity. I knew a positive shift had taken place within me. I wanted more knowledge about everything that she had shared. Fifteen years later, I remain dedicated to these studies."
"I have been with Janani since I was 6 months old; albeit it was some time since then that I began studying with her. I think it was 1996 or so when she began telling me of Vedanta and its teaching. To this day, I continue to study with her. She remains true to the teaching methodology of the Vedas, her guru and the vision, unfolding the nature of the self with humor and compassion."
