Celebrating 50 Years of Yoga

Come, come, whoever you are. Wanderer, worshiper, lover of leaving.
It doesn't matter. Ours is not a caravan of despair.
Come, even if you have broken your vows a thousand times.
Come, yet again, come, come. -- Rumi

This year, we would like to say more, with less.

In Gratitude. Wishing you a year of well being. Om Shanti.
