“Being able to teach Yoga is surely one of the biggest blessings, I have received in this life. It fills my heart with joy to see how this divine system uplifts and empowers others. And I have not met a single person who did not benefit from practicing Yoga, even just a few minutes here and there.
I feel honored to be able to present my understanding and experience of Yoga in the tutorials and classes on this website. I know that you will experience a new state of physical, mental and emotional health when you put this step by step system into practice. It is truly a joyful path.
I recommend that you explore the many paths Yoga has to offer; mine is but one. The ocean of Yoga is endless and I am sure you will find a place where you feel comfortable.
May God’s blessings radiate as love, compassion and forgiveness in all of creation.”
