It is an honor to help George celebrate 11 YEARS as a Spinal Release yogi!
He celebrates what he calls his "Yoga Birthday" this June! He began with my friend and colleague Mukti. When Mukti moved to LA, and I moved to the Bay Area, she sold me her blankets, connected me to the space in Emeryville and handed me the email addresses of her 4 students. George's email address was on the top of his list and, because I didn't know his name, his email address got entered into my contacts as "Yoga Student #1". That's still his nickname!
George has always had great yoga one-liners which I still use today, like "double dip" to refer to when I teach Alternate Leg Pose a second time in one class. To celebrate his Yoga Birthday, I asked George to be the first participant in a feature on our website called "Yogi in the Spotlight". If you would like to tell YOUR yoga story, please contact me.
