I fell in love with yoga because of Cecily Milne....she is a gifted teacher!! In her January 2016 newsletter, she shared a blog post she had written "Lessons from 2015" which she agreed I could share with you. I hope you enjoy it and understand why I see her as a gifted teacher in so many ways!! Enjoy!! Lessons from 2015 Every January I like to look back on the people and events that made the greatest impact on my life during the previous year— especially the teachers who shed light on everything I couldn’t see before.

Emma (Watson) planted her flag firmly in new and trepidatious ground and refused to be defined by anything but her own heart, instinct and voice, and reminded us all that with every moment comes an incredible opportunity. It's just up to us to do something meaningful with it." Jared Leto, actor and HeForShe activist
