Namaste and thank you Toni for this very useful article. I really appreciate it.

I will be contacting some of them for my forthcoming book “You Are the Light – Secrets of the Sages Made Simple”, which is an A-Z of spiritual insights clarifying many obscurely explained yoga concepts that bewilder many yoga teachers.

By the way, how old are your kids? I have written an esoteric fantasy called “Ifflepinn Island” especially for yoga mum’s children, which is full of secret yoga teachings sprinkled among the adventures of the hero. You might like to check it out via this link: https://www.facebook.com/IfflepinnIsland?fref=ts

Warmly,
