Kofi Busia at Turtle Island Oct. 18

Legendary Iyengar teacher Kofi Busia is teaching a rare class at Turtle Island Yoga in San Anselmo. Here are a few words from Kofi himself:
“The secret of wisdom, of life, and of happiness, lies not in what one knows but rather in finding a Way Of Knowing – or perhaps in a Way Of Finding Out At The Moment Of Wanting To Know. …The path lay right at my feet, … the knowledge lay at my very finger-tips and in my heart in a wonderful present and presence, and…all I had to do was walk that path, take hold of that secret, be fully in the present, and learn to love, revere, and feel that presence.” Later, in thanking all those who have guided him, “even if I were to fall in this world or even in to some other world”, he says “I look forward to the day when I can do as much for all of these good people as they have done for me.”
Kofi Busia is one of the world's foremost teachers in the Iyengar tradition. He has been teaching for over 35 years, has held his Advanced Certificate for over 33 years, and has taught all over the world. Although usually resident in Oxford, England, Kofi Busia is currently based in Santa Cruz, California, where he is in semi-retirement while putting the finishing touches to two books, one of which is an original translation and commentary, direct from the Sanskrit, of the Yoga Sutras of PataƱjali. Until this work is complete he will continue to offer only a skeleton number of classes and workshops mainly in the Northern California area. $100/$115 for the all-day workshop. Register here
