Joy, Joy, Joy


Joy, Joy, Joy, originally uploaded by govindakai.

Working with these extraordinary students here in Niigata City, Western Japan has been an incredible blessing for me. Their boundless enthusiasm, humility, generosity and love for yoga has shown me just how powerful this practice can be.

When there is this kind of intimacy and trust between teacher and student.... when there is this kind of devotion and dedication in the learning process, especially with regard to a sacred practice like yoga, then miracles become possible on a regular basis.

Not only does deep physical, mental and emotional healing take place, but divine human qualities begin to manifest themselves such as genuine compassion, charity, high level intuition and boundless joy. It is one thing to read about these kinds of things and an entirely different thing to experience it firsthand.
