    "What can I say? Rukshanna is a gem of a woman! Her retreat is an oasis. Her passion for her teachings is abundant! I was fortunate to have been invited to one of her Indian cooking classes where she shared her amazing wealth of knowledge about the power of cooking with ghee, as well as making four dishes with her masala. It was easily the best Indian food I have ever eaten!"

    "Yesterday, I joined her for sunrise meditation at Palmilla beach and am so happy to be getting back in to meditation that I will be joining her and her Sunday morning group at the retreat. So grateful that she has come in to my life. Like she told me yesterday, the teacher and the student always come together at the right moment."
