Namaste all!

Greetings and good wishes for the New Year!

My news is that I had a controlled fall in my office on December 28 which resulted in a sprained left ankle with a very subtle hairline fracture. At my age of 95, one must pay close attention. I have been fitted with a boot, which I put on when I want to walk about the house. I am not in any pain, and am able to take care of my needs.

Healing time is about six weeks, so for the next two and a half to three months I am cancelling all Yoga classes.

I must urge you to be faithful in your daily Yoga practice, so that as you age, you can maintain flexibility and strength. My philosophy is: one day at a time, and be mindful of where you put your feet.

My Yoga and Meditation students have been wonderful with their help: covered dishes, personal visits, phone calls, cards, flowers, advice, shopping. Many of you have met my daughter, Jean, who is a Teacher of TM, Transcendental Meditation, and lives with me. (It was she who advised me to learn Yoga for my sciatic lower back pain 50 years ago!) Best advice! And, I am a TM meditator, too!

So, dear friends and students, be resolute in your personal practice; and you will be rewarded many-fold.

Until the next newsletter, be safe and happy!
