It is with joy that we celebrate the life of Margo Maya Balog, who passed away December 10th, 2010 at the age of 69 years. Margo was born in Kolozsvar (Cluj), Transylvania on May 22nd, 1941 and grew up in the surrounding area until she was 28 years old at which point she moved to Jugoslavia with her husband Stephen. In 1971 she relocated to Germany and three years later immigrated to Edmonton, Alberta, Canada where she remained and raised her family. She will always be loved, honored and remembered by her husband, Stephen; children, Attila (Karen), Reka (Dave), and Botond (Ingrid); her grandchildren, Jakob, Noah, Natalie, Isabel and Lincoln; as well as numerous other family and friends including the global yoga community she so cherished. Special thanks to Swami Veda, Keely, Barbara, Margaret, Linda, Dave and the countless other yogis from around the world for their support and encouragement. To Our Mom; Until We See You Again.
