I didn't know Mike Byron McKay personally although I inherited some of his students after he left a studio in New Lynn, Auckland. I happened to use the same studio for a year or 2.
Mike was obviously able to instil a love of yoga in them. They showed dedication and discipline in their approach and many of them are still practicing today. Mike was their first teacher and had a great influence on them.
I hope Mike's practice now gives him some support, I know he is surrounded by a loving wife and son through this extraordinarily difficult time. I wish them all the best.
