What People are Saying About Ruth Lauer-Manenti
"Ruth gives...an understanding of the philosophy of yoga through all that she has experienced in her many dedicated years of practice under the guidance of my grandfather, Sri K. Pattabhi Jois."
“Ruth sees not only beauty and wonder in the world around her, but receives profound guidance from observing everyday activities like an old woman getting her hands dirty changing a flat tire or ants carrying carrots. This is because to Ruth all of life pulsates with the wisdom teachings of the guru, the enlightenment principle that surrounds and permeates through all of us at all times.
—Sharon Gannon, cofounder of Jivamukti Yoga
