“Sarika is such a gift to the world and one of the most interesting women I have ever met. I will never forget the day I met her. She is an unforgettable woman and so full of great energy. I have spent a substantial amount of time with Sarika as a friend, student and fellow teacher. Her laugh and awesome sense of humour will keep you engaged- she is a mesmerising teacher and draws students in with her sheer love of life and incredible enthusiasm in all she does.
Sarika brings a wealth of knowledge to her students in her most interesting courses on Face Yoga. I am lucky to have her on my team of teachers and as a friend in this life. Simply put, she is a good person, and humble soul! I love Sarika Hussey! Namaste, Suzanne."
