Today is Guru Punima.  This is an eastern spiritual tradition dedicated to expressing gratitude towards your chosen spiritual and academic teachers, leaders, and great influencers.

The person who struck the match that ignited my spiritual journey was Gandhi.  After seeing the movie Gandhi at the University of Delaware I sobbed.   I immediately read his Autobiography.  I was 21 years old.  It was the first time I had heard of yoga.  After that I became insatiable.  I took my first yoga class not long after that, which set worlds of experience into motion for me.  I knew instantly that yoga would be my lifelong journey.   Along the way I’ve had so many extraordinary teachers.  I am so grateful for all the ways that they have lifted me up,  supported me with love, challenged me to be better, and bestowed their own wisdom so that I could have the tools to evolve.

May we always be the student.
