I thank the yoga and dharma teachers with whom I have spent time learning more about this extraordinary way to live. I see their influence in my understanding of yoga and am sincerely grateful to Swami Muktananda, Neem Karoli Baba,  Rinpoche Anam Thubten, Sharon Salzberg, Katherine DaSilva Jain, Ram Dass,  Krishna Das, Angela Farmer, Laura Duggan, Dana Riffel, Donald Moyer, and Judith Lasater. To these teachers I offer my heartfelt pranam.
