"Ruthy passed with the same grace as she lived. May her memory be a blessing and an inspiration to us all. With love into a healthy and inspirational New Year." Maxine Bachmayer. Ruthy had been my teacher for two decades, I have travelled the globe to train with her and taught for her in Asia and Australia. Truly learning from Ruthy has been one of my life's greatest journeys. We have laughed together, shopped together, giggle and also argued. She was feisty and yet was as gentle as a kitten. Her legacy to the world is indeed immense. Now it is up to us to carry her torch and to share the incredible body of somatic knowledge that the world needs so much now.
