Editors, Vineyard Gazette:

We, the yoga community, suffered a loss last week when MJ Bindu Delekta left her body. MJ Bindu Delekta was part of the tribe of maybe four or five longtime Island yoga teachers — Bonnie Menton, Megan Grennan, Martha Abbott among them — who paved the way for the now 40 some yoga teachers here. Her life was truly and honestly dedicated to helping Vineyarders find and make space in their bodies and lives.

MJ, as we yogis and yoginis say, “The light in me bows to the light in you. Namaste.”
