Where do I even begin to express my gratitude to you. We who practice Ashtanga yoga are blessed because of you. If it wasn't for your passion for yoga the world might not have been touched by the power and beauty of the practice you spread to almost every corner of the world. We are also doubly blessed by how you lived, being the example and embodiment of yoga exemplified through your daily living and commitment to the practical application of it even though your scholarly knowledge went far beyond what we could imagine. You touched people no matter what level of understanding they had and worked with what was tangible. Through that you have reached multitudes of practitioners around the world who ride on the energy and enthusiasm you ignited. Thank you. May your light continue to burn bright in all of us.
