“This is not a ‘do as I say not as I do’ situation, it is neither hypothetical nor armchair academic spirituality, it is a living practice passed by living practicing individuals.” Gratitude for Sumukhi and Briksha for their ONEderful teachings, a humungous output of energy, patience, brilliance, and commitment. There were so many ONEderful moments to be thankful for: Three particular moments that stand out are
  • working together with Angie and Sayra on the first sequence practice. So sweet and meaningful to me. I am touched that I will always have this memory of “how it all began.”
  • Briksha’s ONEderful story about the King and the Minister…
  • Sumukhi’s precious voice, music, excellent and inspiring explanations of deeply esoteric subject matter, clear asana teaching, patience, and humor
~ Monica Miller Thank you to Sumukhi for her guidance and wisdom. Because of her guidance, I have been able to expand my businesses. I gained so much by working with her in yoga and I continue practicing and learning more about Ayurveda. Sumukhi is an important role model. Her trust and openness are cherished by me. ~ Bryana Iglesias
