Yukiko Amaya's journey into conscious
movement started in Paris where she
studied modern dance, Yoga and Aikido,
while developing choreography and mu-sic/sound design for a small dance company she started with two other dancers,
touring throughout France. Her ongoing
studies and practices into understanding
energy fields led her to Kannur, India,
to study Kalarippayattu with Gurukal
Sherifka, who asked her to write this
article, and insisted she start teaching
this ancient art in L.A.

Dr. Lorin Roche was trained as a meditation teacher in 1970 and is the author
of five or six books on meditation, including Meditation Secrets for Women,
Meditation Made Easy, and The Radiance Sutras. No one calls him Doctor,
though, because he is an unreformed
rebel rocker surfer who holds true to
the gospel that meditation is as natural

Om Namaste and Hello Dear Felicia,
I'd been meaning to take a moment to "breathe"... as well as send you my sincere
congratulations and enthusiastic praise on how much this spirit enjoyed illuminations received from reading the October, 2010 issue, even in June of 2011. It was a
really wonderful issue!
The October issue seemed to deeply resonate with much that I feel in heart and spirit
as well as seemed to touch upon a multitude of inner savorings that would speak to
greater humanity in this period of the Golden Age that has indeed arrived.
It felt that many articles, in this particular issue, interwove much about the integral
path of the many forms of Yoga I have come to learn about in my studies of Vedanta
while living on an ashram, such as Bhakti Yoga (devotion), Hatha Yoga (asana postures), Karma Yoga (selfless service to humanity), and Dhyana Yoga (meditation),
but the articles also seemed to whisper an underlying flow of authentic caring and
wellness in their subject areas – quite a tapestry of illuminations coming from an editor who, if I'm understanding the RN following your name, indicates you are also a
registered nurse and by this issue, a sincerely caring being for balance of the mental,
emotional, spiritual and physical bodies that may benefit all.
Wishing you continued expansion and illumination as you continue to sharing this
FREE gift of LA Yoga Magazine, and all its nectar therein, with global humanity.
