Clare Murray Volo- In November of 2000, I went to a Kripalu yoga class taught by Lorie and my life changed forever! I had been heading into a series of dead-ends with relationships, career and choice making. After discovering Kripalu yoga, I was amazed at how much space was available to me. The more I did yoga, the more open I became to creating positive and welcome balance in my life. An amazing transformation continues to take place! One of my favorite quotes is, “put forth your effort with no thought of gain.” With this in mind, I now expand my practice both on and off the mat by sharing this wondrous gift with others.

\Yoga inspirations – Martin Luther King, Jr.; Mother Theresa; my loving parents and 7 brothers and sisters; Lorie, Lisa, teachers and students at CNY Yoga; all of my galpals with a special shout out to Amie Shaffer-8 year cancer survivor and living her life!; Priti, Jairaj, the assistants and all of the yogis and yoginis – Kripalu YTT Class of 8/06; last but certainly not last – starting each new day with my truelove, Mike, and our 2 cats, Bud (Abbott) and Lou (Costello), is life’s greatest gift to me. Namiste and many blessings!
