Here is my online buddy Pat (left) after a yoga workshop with Tilak Pyle (right). Pat has given me tons of support and encouragement over the years in our shared weight loss and fitness journey. She gifted me with a copy of Tilak Pyle's yoga dvd, Altar of the Heart, to celebrate my completing the 200 hours of education and hands on practice required for my national yoga teacher certification. Pat also recently participated in a fund raising walk benefiting research into juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. Pat has been instrumental in my quest for health and fitness. And we have never met in person!
