"Thank you so much for the amazing inspirational classes that Kate and I were so privileged to be a part of back in January. You cannot imagine what an impact they had. It's cold and hectic here but I've managed to carry some of the precious spirit back with me - helped, in no small part, by remembering some of your beautiful asana sequences. That, combined with some chanting and pranayama, is really helping to get my creative process going."
