Above all, persevere in your practice of yoga and meditation, and respect the yogic code of conduct Yama and Niyama, and your success will follow "
" I have been privileged to have met wonderful teachers on my journey of life. Some have become friends and partners, others have become mentors and have touched my life and helped shape me into who I am today. Deepest gratitude and appreciation is present for the awesome life I am privileged to be enjoying every day. My prayer is that I can help others live the life of their dreams because I have learned that “Anything is possible!” Laurence Milner
