Not many yogis that i have met thus far in my life, display such fitness across the physiologic spectrum matched by such a high level of spiritual ripeness.

For ANYONE in our Tribe who can get to Santa Fe this Saturday night, do so. Student Josh is going to crank off a chi-filled presentation: The Lake of Nine Devotions: A Photographic Journey Though India
