Many have of us have been blessed with meeting Dr. Sarita Shrestha here at the Center throughout the years.

We have supported her and the efforts to bring natural healing, ayurveda,  and health to rural #Nepal .

Here in #Encinitas she has guided many of us on the path of health and compassion.

She was in California when the quake hit. She went back to Nepal as soon as possible. Carla Levy hosted Sarita when she was here and sent this post to share with you all.

We all have fear of these natural disasters on deep levels. Reaching out , in aid, in time of need helps others and our path.
May all our fellow beings in Nepal, the Mother land of many sacred places be well.
AUM.
Carolyn

Dear Friends of Sarita Shrestha, MD Ayurveda

On behalf of Dr. Shrestha, I want to first thank everyone for the immense love and support expressed for her personally, and for her family, beloved ancient city and country, as the Nepalese population now faces the deep and painful challenges in their recovery from such a devastating earthquake. 

Sarita's heart is full of both grief for the loss and suffering taking place, and gratitude for the support being expressed. A week prior to her arrival at MMC last Wednesday (2 days before the quake), she was in rural villages giving health care to 300 villagers a day, in the very area at the epicenter of the 7.8 quake. You cannot imagine how this feels for her to know these villages have been completely destroyed. Her biggest clinic in the ancient city of Bhaktapur is miraculously still standing. We do not know yet about her village clinic in Sipadole.

We are calling upon your support to help her people in this time of severe need. She has generously served the Ayurvedic community and hundreds, if not thousands, of clients in the US and in California especially, for the past 15 years - with clinical expertise, deep compassion, commitment and humility. 

The Growing Edge is a 501(C)3 California non-profit corporation I founded in 1993. We have been supporting Dr. Shrestha's work since 2000. One hundred percent of the funds we raise each year during her programs in the US go directly to The Devi Ma Kunja, her NGO in Nepal. These funds have been supporting her clinics in Kathmandu and Bhaktapur, the development of a small rural out- patient hospital in Sipadole, and regular "health camps" in rural villages. 

Dr. Sarita will be returning to Kathmandu this coming Wed...the earliest we could get a flight. 
In addition, we are currently cancelling all the programs in the US that she was scheduled to offer...which means she is losing her primary support for the year's expenses in her clinics!

AND NOW THE NEED IS SO MUCH GREATER!!

If you are able, please be generous. The Growing Edge is raising funds to help her directly support those in need - specifically with medicines, food and temporary shelters. It is raining. Swine flu and cholera are already breaking out.

All donations are fully tax deductible and 100% will be directly passed on to the Devi Ma Kunja and go directly to the people.. 
Dr. Shrestha will personally and directly oversee all monies we raise and will determine how best it can be utilized, based on how things actually are on the ground and in the villages.

We can use other kinds of help too!
Please pass on this information to your friends and colleagues, and ask them to help. 

Donation checks must be made out to The Growing Edge and are fully tax deductible with a receipt.
They can be mailed to:

Iyengar style yoga is not for everyone, but for those who want to learn and practice this method, Carolyn is a premier teacher. Her knowledge of the practice and her dedication to and insight into individual students is breathtaking. We are visitors from Philadelphia, and this is our third year visiting the studio. While most of the students are well acquainted with each other, we have felt warmly welcomed. This is a rare gem of a place and those lucky enough to live or be visiting nearby should count themselves lucky.

A Welcome Refreshing Change. In this day and age of commercialism and watered down goods and services it is a refreshing change to see a place teach Yoga in its pure unadulterated form as taught by one of the legendary Yoga masters of our time B.K.S. Iyengar. Carolyn has reached an advanced level which can only come about from decades of practice. This is evident in the way she teaches. She can sense where you are and where you need to go next. She is adept at picking up incorrect technique and making adjustments. You must have traveled the path before you can teach like this. There are classes here for everyone from the beginner to the hard core advanced practitioner. If you have any ailments, alternative poses will be given. There is also a Therapeutics class for those needing to rehabilitate from an ailment. I can attest to the effectiveness of the Therapeutics class because I recently used it to cure a whiplash injury. It was amazing and a really great learning experience to feel the injury go in reverse. The other instructors at the studio are also well trained and I have learned a lot from them as well.

This is a great yoga studio. The instruction is really detailed with avoiding injury being the main focus! Great place for beginners, boomers and prenatal - they even have a therapeutic class and a restorative class. I love this studio! Carolyn is one of the premier Iyengar teachers in the country and the other teachers are also just excellent, they know their stuff, and friendly.

I drive all the way from downtown to go to Cynthia's class! The studio is beautiful, the teachers are skilled, the atmosphere is friendly...a gem of a yoga studio in a peaceful setting in the Encinitas backcountry.

This is the best Iyengar Yoga place in southern California. I moved here from Brazil, have practiced all over the world, and I really can tell you that Carolyn is one of the best teachers I have ever met. She has a great way of teaching, extremely knowledgeable, sharp, she has a way of communicating with your body that is truly a rare find! Her therapy class is incredible and the studio is just beautiful and peaceful, not to mention her well trained team of teachers and great yoga community.
