About this pro

i teach inside stuff--profound, beautiful, intelligent, functionally mystical yoga that encompasses all of its elements (chakras, mudras, bandhas, pranayama, mantras, et dang-cetera). My instruction is strong but gentle; intense but loving and accessible to all. The meditation techniques i offer are a practical guide to the mystery. i guarantee fascination and fun

The question is: What do you enjoy about the work you do?

And my answer is: Work? What work?

    I have been practicing yoga for over 20 years and I can honestly say that I have never encountered an instructor with more skill, dedication and focus. Atiba took my yoga practice to another whole level by helping me to correct many of my yoga postures that I thought I was doing right. The immediate impact on how my body felt was astonishing! Atiba has set the bar for all future yoga instructors that I choose to work with. He has a passion for yoga that is genuine and, no matter the class size, each student gets the equivalent of one-on-one instruction. He has never failed to go above and beyond what is required of him. Any student fortunate enough to come under his tutelage will learn from a true master. I heartily endorse Atiba as a yoga instructor and any organization that he works with will benefit from his incredible energy and dedication.

Is safety emphasized? Does the training regimen designed for your particular needs and capacities? How patient and attentive is the instructor?  What is her own ability/can he do what he instructs?
