During the last 20 years, complementary therapy has blossomed into the industry we see today. 'Alternative' was the original term used, and fear and ridicule from traditional health practitioners was the order of the day. I have been practising yoga and teaching for 23 years. My dear and beloved teacher – wise man and fool on occasions, as he would admit himself – warned me, "Be careful who you let interpret your world for you – and that includes myself."
I share his words with you, dear reader, before you embark on my tale. I would now like to invite you to share a little of my personal adventure.
I have had the privilege of dancing a little way with all sorts of interesting people as well as some most aggravating, to whom I owe an immense debt of gratitude for offering me the greatest opportunities of growth by placing obstacles along my path.
