There is a mysterious power in prayer. Prayer can work wonders. It can move mountains. It should come from the bottom of your heart with feeling.

My daughters and I went to the ashram on a Yoga Vacation and it was absolutely amazing! What a beautiful place — scenery, accommodations, and spirit. I had not done yoga before and I was a little intimidated — for about a minute! Then I felt so welcome and so supported that I was able to really expand my knowledge and practice and feel totally comfortable.
