Picture posted below

I have posted a lovely picture of my yoga teacher, Denise, meeting with Mr. Iyengar, the guru and founder of our school of yoga. As an American, I struggle with the idea of accepting any one individual, however wise and gifted, as a guru, but Denise, though she is as western as I, if not American, has managed to overcome that.

That IS a lovely shot of your teacher--sweet and genuine.

And she is that. Also a very very gifted teacher. I admire her. In her mid-sixties, she has survived breast cancer (and a recent non-cancerous breast tumor) and hip surgery, from which she is still recovering. She is always energetic and upbeat.
