I just wanted to write and say thank you for such a lovely class this afternoon. I had been looking forward to coming to your class since I saw you on the schedule earlier in the week. It was really touching and comforting to walk in late and feel a safe and nurturing atmosphere made possible by your presence. Hope I get to come back to your class soon! HF

I really liked your story about how you became a yogi. It was personal and nice to hear it! I miss your spiritual classes! DP

I just wanted to thank you for all the lovely yoga classes I took with you at Jivamukti Berlin last week . I am so happy I found this out – being all fresh in Berlin. Especially thank you for the nice workshop yesterday and the satsang. Just coming back from reading your blog – thank you for sharing all these thoughts and stories with us in the world wide web and the wide world. I enjoy most how you work with your voice in class. SF

Thank you for being a human willing to talk out loud about experience. Yours. And thank you, in this way, for being a timeless teacher. JR

I was very happy to have had the opportunity to visit some of your classes in Berlin. I very much appreciated your kind nature and warm energy! SR

Thank you so much for your inspiring self! You have taught me to slow down and explore my body/self. To see how it moves and balances. How things click into place and work as one. My mind and practice have vastly improved because of it. Thank you for your beautiful voice, that I enjoy listening to. Your attention to detail. Your steadfastness. BF

Your blog inspired several people to start a yoga practice and eat less meat. Thank you again for sharing! CC

Dear Tamar, You are always so amazing… I feel really blessed to have you in my life. Carlos Menjivar, Managing Director, Jivamukti Yoga School

Thank you for class and for the grounded comfort you extend from yourself. CBM

I loved every minute of our session today. It is an indulgence and a treat not only to have a private yoga session but also to spend an hour with you! Thank you! AB

There are only very very few teachers who give me a real deep yogic experience in class, and you are certainly one of them! your breath count is amazing, your assists also, and the clarity and calmness with which you teach gives so much space to really experience the flow of prana and breath and all the energetics. and that makes it really deep. your classes are so effective, i mean, they really do something, it’s not just the city vibe in asana shape but it’s a profound experience – i think because you give the space for each person to engage consciously with the proposed structure. so lovely!!! NH

Your poise and steadiness are such an inspiration! JA

Thank you so much, Tamar – for being such a beautiful person that you care enough to help others. That is a rare gift that you have. You are truly paying it forward. DL

I can’t express how much I’m full of gratitude to you and how much I’m touched by your help and inspiring presence that makes me stronger. You’re like an angel and I’m glad and lucky to know you. Carol

I took your class on Saturday a few weeks ago, and I wanted to let you know how much your class and my practice here at Jivamukti has been helping me get through a very difficult time. If I hadn’t been practicing yoga in these past 3 weeks, I know I wouldn’t have been able to deal with things as calmly as I have been. Thank you. Stefanie

I loved your class today. I felt good in the flow, I liked your flow speed, breathing cues, and attention to students seemed to be right on (as in very helpful for each student with where they could use it). Great stuff. Thanks. K.

Cannot tell you the gift that you are to me, and to many, I’m sure …in oh so many ways!  I’m so grateful. Jean

Dear, wonderful Tamar, having you in my life is discovering a piece of the world of which I had been oblivious and without which the picture of a sane and meaningful creation would be incomplete. Y

Tamar, you are the divine incarnation of karma yoga in action. You are love, light and connectedness. With sattvic grace you are blessed to share and we to have felt your healing presence. Thank you Tamarji, for being so available and selfless. So much love emanates from your dedication to the practice and teachings on your remarkable sadhana. Thank you for being so thoughtful, creative and wise. Always thinking with positive intention and quick to reach out to all that need. With love and equanimity.

Good morning Tamar,  what a wonderful poem to start my day with! I also want to thank you for being such a wonderful teacher, your classes leave me enlightened. Thank you. Julia

I’m still teary-eyed from your essay. So moving, beautiful, honest. I promise to think of those sweet, shy cows licking your hand, and perhaps reconsider my dairy consumption as well. Thanks for sharing, as ever. B

I want you to know that last week’s class lasted far beyond Sunday afternoon … really wonderful. One of these days I will read Gandhi’s book.  Meanwhile I keep moving and making my little adjustments… Your example is a shining star. Love. Denny

Thank you for your beautiful thoughts. You reminded me of things I value. See you soon. Jai! Audrey

Beautiful Tamar. Thank You. God’s blessings as you inspire us with words of wisdom past and present. Om. H

Thanks so much for answering all my questions today. I had such a good class with you. I really feel like I can move forward in my yoga practice in a more informed way now. Thanks so much, again, for all your wisdom. M, private student.

Tamar, I really enjoyed the basic class on Saturday. It changed my Chaturanga Dandasana. I am sure it has a lot of work and there is always improvement but I feel that I made a positive adjustment. –MK
