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.

Kofi Busia

I attribute this to my current teacher of 22 years, Kofi Busia. His teaching is impeccable. His patience and yogic knowledge are second to none. I am inspired  to teach with consistency, clarity of purpose and joy in honor of my teacher.
