“I spent 6 months in India trying to find the “real yoga.” It was interesting, but no single person has affected my yoga practice as much as you. Your realness and your genuine love for people, music, and yoga inspire me…. You have shown me that yoga comes from inside, and going to India proved it to me.” –D. Rodier, student
