We took 2 yoga classes with Asiri, one in Unawatuna and one in his Yoga Retreat in Boosa. Both were really good and challenging. Asiri helps you with the difficult postures so everyone will see some improvement!

You have to repeat again and again to learn. This is life time job! Wheel is very basic and you are still not there and it is very important posture. To learn do again and again..may be years
