"Through communication, we are connecting emotionally, energetically, mentally, spiritually; in fact it’s quite intimate. It's not a difficult thing to do; it's just surrendering and trusting yourself. Trust and surrender are essential to effective communication as communication is essential for true trust and surrender. It is the sacred cycle of transformation at the core of all conscious relationships.
- Tara Lynda Guber
KEN NATESHVAR “TESH” SCOTT
Self Magazine named Tesh one of the top ten yoga instructors in the United States. His vision for Contact Yoga comes from the literal translation of the word “yoga”, which means “union” in Sanskrit. If yoga is union, then the perfect expression of uniting through yoga is in practicing with a partner.
“Contact Yoga is an external expression of an internal union based on sacred relationship.”
- Ken “Tesh” Scott
