"I have worked with Vladimir for almost three years on projects ranging from translation of Jyotisha texts, philosophy and a rigorous study of Sanskrit. Aside from his obvious expertise and flexible expansive thinking, Vladimir is a supportive, encouraging and respectful collaborator and teacher. He is always very mindful of what others bring to the conversation and their individual learning styles. I always look forward to our wonderful sessions."
"A few years ago, I have attended Sanskrit classes taught by Vladimir Yatsenko, on Skype. It was a group of about 7 or 8 students. I find him the most effective Sanskrit teacher amongst the ones I know about. His scientific method and at the same time psychologically and spiritually deep understanding not only inspired me and destroyed my fear about such a classic and sophisticated language, but also elevated my inner state which is essential to connect to the root of this language and to learn it as a language of my inner being."

"Vladimir was for me a highly inspiring teacher, who not only made me love the Sanskrit language, but revealed the links to the Indo-European languages.
It is also thanks to his profound knowledge of these cultures that a language like Sanskrit taught by Vladimir becomes a subject of cultural reflection and a learning of hidden values within the language, a virtue that is very precious and rare among teachers.
But there is more, as Vladimir does not only know his subject, but is a true researcher himself going ways, which no one dares to approach.
I always will be grateful to him."
“Vladimir has made a huge difference in my Sanskrit studies. After years of study I have finally found a Sanskrit teacher who is both incredibly knowledgeable and also has a huge cultural and philosophical background to draw on which has imbibed my Sanskrit studies with true meaning. Vladimir makes learning Sanskrit a joy and his depth in the subject is inspiring!”

“I have been studying the Rigveda under Vladimir for over a year and am in awe of his profound knowledge and lifetime dedication to the Rigveda as well as India’s other spiritual scriptures and the life works of Sri Aurobindo. Vladimir is a brilliant instructor who beautifully illumines the profound sacred teachings offered in these ancient texts. Having the opportunity to study under Vladimir has changed my life. I feel blessed to have such a loving, deeply insightful and truly committed instructor."

“Vladimir knows exactly where he leads us, paying attention to important issues and leaving less important stuff for the future studies. He first builds a strong foundation, so to say, a grammar structure, a skeleton which later enables us to read texts (our main goal!), but at the same time we will be able to perfect our knowledge in many other ways: to study Panini grammar or to improve our conversational skills in Indian Sanskrit centers etc. Along with this systematic approach, we appreciate very much the spirit in which he is teaching and which is not easy to describe. It is a flame of inner search and knowledge which brought all of us to Sri Aurobindo and which inspire all our efforts in such a difficult task as studying Sanskrit language."
