Eternal and heartfelt thanks to my Guru, BKS Iyengar, for his life's work and the profound blessings that his Yoga continues to bring to my life.
Infinite thanks to ALL my teachers (past and present), most especially my beloved Mary Dunn, who though no longer in a body, will never leave any of us who love her. I owe so much to this very special woman, teacher, mentor, friend. I am daily grateful.
Thanks to Maharaji, Neem Karoli Baba, for watching over me and taking care of me, always.
Great Big Thanks to Krishna Das for wonderfu chants, kirtan and more
Thanks to Ram Das for profoundly gracing my life over the years, without even knowing it.
SINCERE, DEEP THANKS to Nedra & Alex of The P.E. Club for providing an exquisite, elegant and comfy new home (and Frank Lopez for building it!) for all my classes!
Thanks to everyone who comes to my classes and to all my private lesson clients for teaching me, for my livelihood, for your hard work. It is my privilege and honore and to serve you.
where there is no photo credit/caption, the photo is mine—my snapshot, or it is stock, or no credit was available, otherwise the photographer is captioned.
A Very special THANKS to Bill Westheimer for wonderful Asana photos and most "Take a Yoga Break" photos. Also to Lisa Westheimer for being the model in "stand up ..." asanas.
Thanks very much to my dear friend and colleague, my “yoga stylist”, Judith Isaacs, for spotting/correcting and styling my asanas at all photo shoots.
Special thanks to Barbara Weinstein, my "personal" photographer.
Enormous Gratitude to the brilliant and immensely talented Graphic Designer, Tracy Turner, www.tracyturnerdesign.com for creating this website, my previous website, my logo, (Especially since she does not do these kinds of tiny projects).
A great big THANKS to Chiyoung for all her wonderful work on this website!
Thanks to my former ASL interpreter, Donna Guptil, who created new opportunities for me to share yoga, without whom I would have had no Yoga for the deaf and hard of hearing.
Thanks always to Yamuna Zake (Becker, at the time) for giving me such a good start at Serenity Yoga Center (1978--1981)
Thanks a million to Julie Shea, www.sheamoving.com for her brilliant design and upkeep of my first website yorkvilleyogabreak.com.
