I trained concurrently in dance and understood the importance of balance in movement--for safety, for beauty. As I have evolved, I have experimented with many different schools within Hatha Yoga and love them all for different reasons. I relish the gym yoga classes where we would collectively power and flow through the most challenging poses.

I hear this statement all the time, “heavy weights with low repetitions will bulk you up while light weights with high repetitions will tone you up”.   Is there a difference in these two types of training?  The answer is yes – but it’s not about the way you look, it’s about the muscle strength vs. muscle endurance.

Wellness Feels Good!
