HAPPY STUDENTS

Par excellence! I particularly appreciated both the academic rigor and deep spiritual practice both Monica and Gregor have invested in probably what is now 80 years between them. Brilliance, love and humour shines through in their giving themselves to teaching yoga, in which I thoroughly relaxed and enjoyed and, I shall take with me to eternity. Namaste.
