Prayers of Gratitude with Sally Kempton

Teaching Yoga

Sally Kempton is one of my yoga heroes. I found her work at a time in my practice life where I felt stunted, and a bit lost. I was hungry for something that wasn’t on offer to me, at least not in the yoga circles that I found myself in. I wanted to meet a teacher who had depth, experience and as my friends and I say, is the “real deal”. Sally Kempton is that teacher. And while I have yet to study with her in person, her book Awakening Shakti, and audio program Doorways To The Infinite had a profoundly impactful presence on my personal practice & teaching life.
