Eyes closed, back tall, legs folded, we connected—strangers yesterday, friends today.
We‟re All One! Each member of the human family is a variation of the one. In yoga we know
the teachings about this unity of all life forms and after traveling for one and a half years it
means so much more to me. The lessons of yoga, profound and beautiful, were illustrated in each
yoga class in many parts of the world.
Our family of two adults and two kids traveled the world for 18 months recently and I
taught yoga to many new friends along the way--in the Republic of Georgia, Germany, Norway,
Sweden, Turkiye, Cyprus, Syria, Jordan, Egypt, India, Bulgaria and elsewhere. As we visited
many places where yoga was unknown, I was often people‟s first yoga teacher. What an honor,
to be the ambassador of this beautiful practise and witness the sweet tranquility that yoga brings
to people‟s faces and bodies. I am continually in awe of yoga‟s ability to reach people at a deep
level, even without shared (verbal) language. I was teaching people whose language was Arabic,
Georgian, Mahrati, Turkish and so on, and these are not languages I speak.
