I want to sing the praises of Akwesi M. Asante. From the moment I walked into my first class with him, I immediately sensed that this man was a kind, talented and wise instructor.
His verbal instructions, in combination with his precise movements, were extremely clear. Moreover, he was always gracious and concerned about participants inadvertently injuring themselves by overdoing any particular exercise - even as he challenged everyone to work on extending their flexibility, balance and strength. His reassuring tone, supportive attitude and radiant sense of joy promotes a culture of enlightened physicality. As he says, "Exercise is one thing, but you always have to move." I have no doubt that people who take his class and practice the exercises he teaches are taking important steps to promote their health and vitality in the face of the inevitable ravages of time. DON'T MISS HIM!
