News about Shaka

From the Editor

We have received the following e-mail from Shaka Henderson, the student whom we sponsored at SOAS, University of London, through the Phiroz Mehta Scholarship in 2016–2017:

Hi everyone at the Trust,

I just wanted to get in touch and let you know that I have completed my MA and finished with a distinction!

I know you would have received my feedback report but I just wanted to take the time to thank you again for giving me this precious opportunity to study. I have had the most amazing and enriching time at SOAS. It’s been hard work of course but very much worth it.

I’m currently now training to be a yoga teacher and have also taught yoga philosophy on one teacher training course. It seems that many of my hopes for the future are beginning to manifest. I just continue to be motivated by a desire to help others and share this precious knowledge.

Thank you again for your faith in me and for the wonderful trip on the retreat. I’m very much enjoying receiving my magazine every quarter too!

Kindest wishes and regards,


Very many congratulations to Shaka from all of us at the Trust for doing so brilliantly. We are all very happy at her success and wish her all the very best for the future.
