He has been lecturing ‘Yoga’ philosophy, including the ‘Bhagavadgita’ for close to two decades; his knowledge and inner wisdom is remarkable and his true humility is obvious. It is a true honor and absolute blessing for the Amma Center to host such an amazing teacher. Please join us this for lecture and discussion.

Extreme ‘Yoga Tone’

‘Extreme Yoga Tone’ is an intense workout that incorporates weight lifting with a strength building Asana practice (yoga postures). It is set at an intermediate level not meant for a beginner. Participants must have a regular yoga practice and some experience with light weight training.

Why combine Yoga & Weight training?
As we age our bodies loose muscle mass, this can lead to loss of bone density increasing vulnerability to osteoporosis. By the age of 70 most people will have lost approximately 50% of their muscle mass; studies show that strength training over time can help prevent bone loss and even promote small amounts of bone growth. There are also studies that indicate similar findings regarding a consistent yoga (asana) practice. So, why NOT ‘Yoga Tone”?
