When my wife and I decided to enter the Stanford DCI (Distinguished Careers Institute) I was willing to move to California for the year. Under protest. And I personally said to myself that I would NOT do yoga. OR meditation. OR eat avocado on toast.
Then I met the DCI people, and especially met Rocky. He proved to be one of the warmest, most honest, most sincere people I’ve ever met.
I joined his kundalini class in September, 2019, and still practice with him at every opportunity. His practice, I find, is gentle for the elder person, like myself. It includes extensive meditation, especially with meditative breathing.
I am now removed to the East Coast, and continue to attend his sessions. These times together enrich my life. It is a joy to see him and follow his lead with our fellow yogis. He centers us almost instantly now, and we are calm, sedate, and ready to proceed. We apply ourselves physically, and, more importantly, mentally to find a restful state.
I have always been a very factual, hands-on scientific type person. And I still am such a person. Rocky makes me see a bit beyond. He has made me think reflectively like I have not before. I value this expanded scope of vision. I thank him so much.
I now do yoga and meditate. I do not eat avocado on toast.
