 Yoga is the most profound relationship I have ever known. The practices of yoga have held my attention and my heart with curiosity and demand that I respect and cherish.
 I attribute this to my current teacher of 26 years, Kofi Busia. His teaching is impeccable. His patience and yogic knowledge are world class.  I am inspired to teach with consistency, clarity of purpose and joy in honor of my teacher.
