Dearest Este,
I met you 10 years ago and from the first moment, we got on very well and our friendship grew brilliantly over the years. I loved being your student and then I loved practising with you most mornings throughout last year, listening to Pachelbel’s Canon or Vivaldi’s Four Season. You taught me so much, I am forever grateful of your generous personality!

A piece of me has died when you passed away last week. You left with your “fairies and unicorns”, with which you used to tease your students, who were not focusing on your instructions.

You were the guidance, love and support for all your yoga students. You fought and believed in yourself until the end just like you believed in your students and challenged them to do positions they did not imagine they would ever be able to do.

You were compassionate, caring and an amazing listener. You always told us to listen to our bodies and look after ourselves. You were a dedicated human being who was always there when her friends needed her. Up until the end you have been a tremendous inspiration for everyone around you.

You left a huge impact on our lives. On behalf of all your friends and students whom you touched with your fantastic positive energy and irresistible sense of humour, we feel deeply privileged to have been part of your life. You will remain in our hearts forever.

Este, I will sorely miss you as a friend and a neighbor. You were always there to help with anything, such a kind and generous soul.
I will miss our evening walks with the dogs, they won’t be the same without you.
Rest now dear friend and one day we’ll meet again ❤️

I hear her, see her, she surrounds me with her presence. Her voice, correcting my poses, guiding with a wry smile and at times, sarcastic tone. She helps me overcome my fears, pushing my limits, making me understand the risks and rewards of personal challenges met. "Practice, practice , all is coming."
Worldly wise with an uncanny BS detector, a wicked sense of humor--tough in the nicest way. She will always be with me.
I treasure so much about Este, as a friend & teacher, so generous with her time, sharing is caring.
The thick black Manduka mat she gave me 15 years ago is my daily reminder of hours so well spent with a person who touched and changed my life. To Este, I am forever grateful for your love.

Este. You are my my enormously loved friend. You gave so much. Wisdom, friendship, motivation to keep on loving, living and bending.

I will always treasure most our Thursday afternoons in the desert doing our thing while the dogs ran around us.

Utterly miss you. Lost for words that are constructive.

Dear Este, you will be missed greatly, as my first yoga teacher, who introduced me to the art of yoga & meditation; but mostly as a beloved friend. I will always remember your calm voice in practice, your wise words of guidance & your incredible positive energy. Hard to believe you are gone but may you rest in peace & watch over us as an Angel and guiding light...

My dear friend and great teacher. A voice in
my head that will forever remain. Been missing you and will miss you always. I owe you my practice and strength. You made me push limits that I never thought I was capable of. This I carry with me for all the years to come. Thank you. May you lay in peace my cherished friend.

I am deeply saddened to hear about this news and still can’t believe that we won’t ever practice together again. You showed me a different path at a time when no one else was able to understand what I needed. I can never thank you enough for everything you taught me - about yoga and about myself. You hold an irreplaceable position in my yoga journey. Thanks again for everything.

Esther ..I was so so sad to hear of your passing
I will never forget your beautiful gentle soul
Gone too soon.....Rest in peace my dearest cousin

Thank you Este for all that you taught us. You taught us more then yoga - you taught us about life and with so much love, patience and passion. I will never forget how you humorously picked on me but then also pushed me to do better and better. You were my first yoga teacher and I loved yoga because of you. Thank you for being you and seeing me through so much. God bless! Rest In Peace!

Este, my heart breaks to hear of your passing, You had such a natural warmth, a caring spirit and a razor sharp wit! You will be desperately missed by everyone who had the good fortune to have known you. Rest In Peace beautiful Este X

Rest in peace dear Este. You left such a huge mark on everyone around you. You had such a sweet spirit and kind heart. I will never forget my first yoga lessons with you where you always had only words of encouragement and positivity that only pushed me further and further. You had a lot to offer and give and you certainly did. You will be dearly missed but I believe you are off to a better place enshallah under god’s mercy. May your soul rest in peace.

You had me do my first headstand Este. You believed I can do it even though I didn’t. I barely attended your classes but you would always stop and speak to me. You had a powerful but humble presence and you just wanted everyone to feel better about themselves.

Please know that what you’ve taught us all will never be in vain and who you were will always be celebrated and admired.

Namaste.

Darling Esther,

I am bereft. The world is poorer without your beautiful soul and special light. Your passing has left a hole in my heart.

Rest in peace, and may there forever be beautiful music.

Thank you dear Este for all you have taught me, not only about yoga, but about myself. You were more than a teacher, you became a friend who really cared and comforted me when I really needed it. You have a special place in my heart for always.

Este will be missed but not forgotten. I think of her every time I step onto the mat. For any of us that would like to practice with her one last time, I upload 4 of her yoga classes that I recorded to the music section.
Posted by Lena Barna on May 18, 2021
Through Este I got in touch with Yoga and we began to become friends. Although we didn’t see each other for such a long time because of my move to another country, we were in touch and shared our thoughts.

I learned a lot from her and can’t believe that she is not here with us anymore.

Este, I truly miss you.

Rest in peace, beautiful soul ❣️

My thoughts are with her family.

Rest In Peace este..
we will never forget your strong spirit and all you have taught us.
Maybe God rest your soul, may you be freed of any pain you were put through, and may you experience light and love forever.
Posted by Nada Salha on May 18, 2021
Ah, it was only recently when you comforted me during my struggles, where you told me that i am strong woman and things will be ok, and where you prayed for me always to find peace within myself.

You helped me in so many ways at so many levels. You will forever stay in my heart. I now pray that you are in a better place and are at peace. Love you forever my dear Este.
