Daughter of the lakes, explorer of the ocean of perennial wisdom,
Love led me to Yoga, then Jyotish, Ayurveda, India and the glory of the Vedas.
Now I live in a place called ‘awe’ – for who knew the heart could be so deep,
or that life could rise up with such beauty, vigor and grace?
I teach to remember, nourish, inspire.
