'Through the vehicle of compassion, I intend to provide expert yoga instruction to all who wish to learn.   It is my belief that Yoga is an integral ingredient in a mixture that sustains a purposeful life filled with loving presence, compassionate interaction, benevolent action, inspired rest, and spiritual growth.'  

Understanding the importance of value, 
I will consistently and consciously maintain a commitment 
to the highest standards of personal service in a comfortable environment.
