Join us at Iyengar Yoga Asheville for a special weekend of Yoga with renowned Yoga teacher Kofi Busia. Kofi’s teaching style is unique and his philosophical musings are dynamic and provocative. Expect a weekend full of asana, pranayama, sanskrit chanting and philosophy. Also expect to leave with a deepened understanding of the subject and the curiosity to want to understand more.


Kofi Busia is one of the world's foremost teachers in the Iyengar tradition. He has been teaching for nearly 40 years, and has held his Advanced Certificate for 35 years. He has taught, and is recognized, all over the world. He began yoga as a student at Oxford and has taught professionally ever since. Throughout the 1970's and up until the mid-1980's, he studied directly from B. K. S. Iyengar on a regular basis at the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute in Pune, Maharashtra, South India.

Although he has lived most of his life in Oxford, England, he is currently based in Santa Cruz, California, where he is putting the finishing touches to three planned books, one of which is an original translation and commentary, direct from the Sanskrit, of the Yoga Sutras of Patañjali.

Or, one can devote one’s self completely to things spiritual.

“You and your significant other are en route to an unknown destination. Relations between you have been testy for a while. You are then convinced you should "turn left" ... when the GPS speaks up & says "turn right". Should you insist on your path? And should the GPS turn out to have had a bug, should you say 'I told you so'?” --Kofi Busia
