Just listened to Peter Sterios - really important work for anyone who practises yoga. Highly recommend it. Also listened to Tererai Trent yesterday and truly inspirational. What she has achieved in her life - and we give up after a couple of efforts!! Thanks Tami for introducing these incredible people.
