It is with great humility and gratitude that I bow down to the wonderful Teachers and Masters who have inspired me and who have tirelessly & selflessly taught so much to so many. Whether yogi or shaman (a small child or an experienced Elder), to me it makes no difference. Quite a few people have deeply inspired me and really changed the course of my life forever. And so it goes, in today’s day and age, we have the opportunity to learn from many great teachers. And, as “teachers”, we ultimately are best off not forgetting to remain humble, fresh and new as a student – ever ready & open to learn a few more droplets of the vast ocean of yoga science if only to realize in the end how little we actually know and how much more there is to explore, experience and try to understand. In fact, as one great yoga master proclaimed: “There are no teachers – we are all just students…”
First and foremost, I would like to thank and honor SWAMI BRAHMAVIDYANANDA of the Sivananda-Satyananda Yoga lineage. He is the Founder & Director of The Institute for Holistic Yoga – Satyananda Ashram. No words can express the immensity and purity of the offering he has given, and continues to give, to me and to so many others.
