Testimonials

I first met Jeff at the Iyengar Yoga Institute in Los Angeles and was amazed at his path into Ayurveda.  I have used his services many times and continue to use his products today.  The quality of his homemade oils and body products is amazing and incomparable with other ayurvedic products I have tried.  He is a knowledgeable and well-prepared Ayurvedic doctor with vast knowledge of herbs and the yogic practices that are used in Ayurvedic to bring health.  Jan W 2021

 

I have known and practiced with Jeff over the past six years.  Initially, I met him at Yogaworks as my instructor in the morning Iyengar classes, and when I found out he was an Ayurvedic doctor I started seeing him as my holistic health person.  He has helped over the years with my yoga practice and continues to be my teacher online with zoom since covid three days per week, and I work continue to see him once or twice a year for specific health concerns.  He is caring and very detailed about teaching with my limitations and injuries and I would never hesitate to recommend him.

First of all, Jeff's presence is very calming. Especially if you have a lot of Vata, you just feel relaxation seeping through your muscles when you meet Jeff. Then, the information intake is a very thorough procedure laced with a delicious herbal drink that Jeff prepares for you prior to the visit. And every time you visit, Jeff will prepare another amazing herbal healing drink. If you get panchakarma, Jeff will feed you some meals. Just for that experience, since Jeff is a professional chief, I suggest you get the detoxification plan with the hands-on detoxification treatments. Of course, panchakarma is great at detoxifying your body and there are other services that Jeff offers including yoga to detoxify your mind, food recommendations to maintain the detoxified body, pranayama to sustain your soul. Contact Jeff and see how your mind, body and soul, and possibly life, changes.-EV 2020

I’ve started consulting with Jeff last August as I was experiencing some spleen and liver issues as well as chronic headaches and fatigue. After a very informative first session about Ayurveda which I wasn’t very familiar with, I got to know more about my Dosha profile and started Jeff’s tailored treatment which consisted of a new diet (including yummy recipes that worked with my Dosha), handmade herbal tea and Nasya oil, among other things like breathing exercises and meditations that I could easily include in my daily routine. Jeff, who’s also a chef, even cooked for me! I was able to see a dramatic improvement in my health in the following days, which was pretty spectacular for me. I will continue to regularly consult Jeff and would strongly recommend him to anybody interested in this amazing medicine that is Ayurveda.- Fabrice 2020

Working with Jeff has changed my life. I came to him with intense migraines and overall imbalance and his treatment program brought significant shifts in my physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Jeff is incredibly thoughtful and realistic and through careful adjustments in my diet, mindfulness, and yoga practice, everything from my sleep, skin, mental health, and migraines have improved.- RJ 2019

 

I came to Jeff Perlman at Three Seasons Ayurveda to complement my yoga practice, to help find mental and emotional balance, and to have an awareness of how what I do each day impacts my overall health and well-being. After just a month, I can honestly say I'm seeing an improvement in all those areas of my life and  I will continue to examine Ayurvedic principles in order to find balance again.- Christine N 2019

 

I was lucky enough to find Jeff after learning about Ayurveda and wanted to find help managing an eczema condition that had escalated. Every dermatologist and allergist I had seen offered me nothing but a shrug and prescriptions for topical steroids. Jeff took his time to really learn about my life and designed a protocol to address the root cause of my problem. I would recommend him highly.- Barbara M 2018

 

I first met Jeff at an introduction to Ayurveda he was teaching and immediately set up an appointment to find help with chronic constipation.  After a full evaluation, Jeff prescribed an Ayurvedic treatment program that gave me a new direction, implementing simple lifestyle changes, herbal medicines, and diet, and have never felt better.  I continue to work with him and follow an Ayurvedic lifestyle. Candice H. 2019

 

I recently went through a detoxification cleansing process with Jeff and could not recommend him more highly. Jeff was so attentive before, during, and after the cleanse since I had some sensitivities. He cares deeply and gives more than is expected. The final massage was absolutely amazing and stayed with me for a long time. His knowledge of Ayurveda is clearly deep. High praise! Kathy L. 2017

 

I've seen Jeff on many occasions, first to get an Ayurvedic evaluation and to initially treat intense anxiety and stress.  On my second appointment, I experienced Abhyanga and Shirodhara treatments which completely brought me to an amazing balanced, and I left feeling renewed and re-energized, and so calm.  I definitely recommend Jeff for everything Ayurveda.-

I had been experiencing extreme inflammation and allergies for many years and started seeing Jeff in 2015.  With his guidance, I have been able to identify lifestyle patterns and along with dietary and herbal medicines I have been given a new life. My trip to India for Panchakarma was incredible and have continued with this practice each year.- David G. 2017

 

Jeff was referred to me for Yoga therapy sessions for my multiple sclerosis and then after one of his Ayurvedic workshops, he started helping me fine-tuning my daily practices, nutritional needs and I have been using herbal formulas for two years now that has helped immensely with my MS.  Love this guy!- Daniel S. 2017

I was introduced to Ayurveda by Jeff a couple of years ago when I started practicing yoga with him and then attended a couple of his Ayurvedic workshops.  I started working with him on some health concerns that my western doctor could not seem to really help me with.  I have always been drawn to India but never found the right opportunity to go until Jeff recommend that I come for Panchakarma with him in India.  It was so exciting visiting India and experiencing Kerala where Jeff takes groups for this ancient practice and yoga retreat.  Jeff I so knowledgeable about yoga and Ayurveda I am so glad that I bit the bullet and decided to attend.  Big thumbs up for India and Three Seasons Ayurveda.- Carla L 2018

 

Wow, what can I say, traveling to India with Jeff was a dream come true for me.  I first met Jeff in an Iyengar Yoga class about 5 years ago and then went to an introductory class on Ayurveda which blew my mind about how to bring Ayurvedic practices into my life. I had also gone to some Ayurvedic cooking classes with Jeff and then decided it was time to go to Kerala in 2019.  I could not believe how beautiful India was and the Ayurvedic center was so magical, I had a lovely cottage and could hear the waves in my room and each day I had two therapists administer two hours of ayurvedic treatments to me and the yoga classes were so informative. The food was so amazing and I would recommend this outing and Jeff to everyone.- Patricia S 2018

 

My yoga retreat in Kerala, India with Jeff Pearlman was the best gift I have ever given myself. For 10 days I was pampered, refreshed, and renewed in body and soul. Daily meditation and breathing set the tone of each day followed by two hours of treatments prescribed by my individually assigned Ayurvedic Doctor.  Daily massages with warm oils, milk, and reviving facials were prescribed by the doctor according to my needs. My body was refreshed by the huge vegetarian buffet labeled according to each ”Dosha” so it was easy to select foods that benefited my determined constitution. Two hours of daily yoga led by Jeff Perlman strengthened and stretched my body. Dinner was usually al fresco with daily entertainment of dance and music from India. I highly recommend giving yourself this beautiful gift of total renewal. - Angelia M 2019

 

I have been working with Jeff for two years starting when I was dealing with cancer and surgeries, and he is very helpful and caring. His products are made for my needs and are wonderful and have assisted me greatly in improving my health and energy. As my strength improved, we started yoga therapy class, and then he designed a couple of yoga sequences for me to practice at home. I highly recommend him.- Bollywood Barni 2018

 

I started coming to see Jeff in 2015 and he guided me with my health concerns and started using Jeff’s handmade products.  I move back to France in 2017 and have bought them on many occasions for myself and as gifts.  Most recently I put in a large order of products and the turnaround time was amazing! He personally called me to ensure the specificity of my order was correct and shipped it out in no time at all. The customer service here is top-notch!- Ellen W 2016

 

Jeff and I connected almost two years ago when I first took his Iyengar yoga class. From the very start, Jeff impressed me with his wealth of knowledge about the science of yoga and Ayurveda.  I learned a lot from him about holistic living and Ayurveda and was able to implement some changes to my diet and lifestyle. During a private yoga instruction, Jeff designed a wonderful sequence of asanas and meditation I am very thankful to Jeff for his support on my journey to health and wellbeing.-

A friend I trust deeply recommended Jeff and I could not be happier. I am consulting him for an Ayurvedic health program and he is kind, knowledgeable, and patient. He is clearly passionate about what he does and his desire to help others. I am very excited about what I am learning and looking forward to more appointments. I’m very lucky to have met Jeff over a year ago.  Thanks to his teachings and his guidance I have been able to grow in many areas of and my life and now are able to see many tangible and positive results in myself.- Laurie R. 2015

My husband and I had the great pleasure of attending an Iyengar Yoga Retreat in Kerala, India organized by Jeff Perlman.  You know you are in good hands with Jeff who has been to the Manaltheeram Ayurvedic Group many times.  He chose this wonderful seaside resort to practice daily Pranayama and Yoga.  His knowledge and passion for Iyengar Yoga and an Ayurvedic lifestyle are always present in his teachings and talks.  The retreat aims at rejuvenating the mental, physical and emotional self. We are so grateful for this unique experience and look forward to returning with Jeff for a future retreat.- Vivian & John L 2019

 

Kerala is a magical place!  Jeff is extremely knowledgeable and has chosen an amazing place for his retreats.    I went in with no regular meditation, pranayama or yoga practice.  No experience with Ayurveda and only a little bit of knowledge that Jeff had shared before the trip.  I came back committed to a daily meditation and breathing practice and excited to explore the world of Yoga more.  Jeff is helpful every step of the way and open to all questions.  I learned so much about Ayurveda and myself.  This retreat was the perfect reset and I am still overwhelmed with gratitude to Jeff, to the great group that was on the retreat with me and for the opportunity to experience all of it. -Karen E 2019

 

“Going to India with Jeff was not only stress and hassle-free but fun!  I learned a lot about myself and how to adopt an Ayurvedic lifestyle. I was extremely impressed by the accommodations. And, delighted by the friendliness and attentiveness of the staff that work in the resort. The Ayurvedic doctors were very knowledgeable. The food and Ayurvedic treatments were exquisite! I felt extremely rested and renewed after it all.  Jeff provided such an interesting and in-depth introduction about yoga, meditation and pranayama. It was one of the most fun learning experiences  I have ever had!  His daily classes were a great combination with the Ayurvedic treatments. This is a retreat I would attend again and again!-Brigitte H 2019

“Jeff Perlman was a great guide to this Ayurvedic adventure. He brought us to a tropical paradise, filled with sensory delights, where all our needs were attended to. He struck a perfect balance of being available when we needed him and not intruding on our individual experiences when we wanted our space. He provided information as we needed it—about Ayurveda, about yoga, about the Kerala region and things to do there. He really did his best to make sure each of us had a memorable and satisfying experience.”- Terry W 2017

 

I attended the 14-day PK program with Jeff in November of 2017. It was the best decision I had ever made. Prior to attending the retreat, I was having a lot of issues with constipation, anxiety, anger, and general frustration. The retreat provided me a sense of well- being, the care and love I received from the center and the Ayurvedic hospital, staff and physicians was wonderful. The yoga and pranayama that Jeff provided were balancing and well thought out. It was different every day and Jeff was very in-tune with all of us and the self-care he provided us was amazing. Since arriving back home, I have retained a lot of the balance that I received while in India. 

I guess it gave me the tools and knowledge that I needed. Thanks to India and to Jeff for creating a wonderful retreat.- Tara M 2017

 

Traveling to India with Jeff was a truly unique and enriching experience. After a two week stay in a beautiful beach setting facing the Arabian sea, I returned home feeling totally renovated and strong, both physically and emotionally. Having pranayama and yoga classes everyday under Jeff’s guidance and care is just what I needed, and it perfectly complemented the Panchakarma treatments we received at the clinic. Every day, under the care of an Ayurveda doctor we received a series of treatments that little by little started show positive effects on my system. All staff members at the clinic were very professional and friendly. Sharing quality time with others in the group was a wonderful experience and I will definitely want to repeat in the future.- Luis C 2017

 

The trip with Jeff to Kerala, India in November 2017 was magical. The location Manaltheeram was beautiful and the Ayurvedic doctors, staff and the treatments were very comprehensive.  Jeff is an impeccable host and was so well prepared, from his Yoga Asana and Pranayama classes, to organizing outings, as well as being available to describe each of our Ayurvedic treatments; he was always accessible and informative.  I would do it again in a heartbeat and fret the two-week retreat, I felt so rested and healthy - it was well worth it. - Affi B 2017
