"Travel Light, Live Light, Spread the Light,             Be the Light"      Yogi Bhajan

"  I have been on several of the yoga retreats you have organized and have been so thankful you were the tour leader.  I know for certain the trips had a special depth and breadth of experiences as a result of your own knowledge, as well as that of the knowledgable, interesting people with whom you connected in the various destinations.  Thank you so much for sharing your time, energy, and talent, as well as your fun spirit, on these trips.  I am looking forward to Iceland." Joyce Meyer, Oakland
