Through yoga, I have vastly improved my strength, lost weight, and drastically improved my flexibility. I especially love teaching inversions, arm balances, and handstands.
Paul on Yoga. Through my practice of Yoga, I have mastered techniques like the handstand and forearms balances. Yoga has brought me strength that I could never develop from weight lifting alone.
