Tarik currently teaches all over the world but his heart and home is at his daily morning Mysore class in Shibuya, Tokyo.

“Yoga has given me so much, and my trips to India has enriched my life so much. The idea of giving back to such a rich culture, influential part of my life. The small amount of money can go so far and can do so much. Watching YGB Films clarified this reality that we can make a huge impact. For me, continuing my support for Yoga Gives Back is a good idea,  the least I can do.”
