This Yoga has done wonders for my flexibility and weight loss. I have lost just at 50 pounds and am looking to lose 15 to 20 more by February – this gives me 16 months to lose another 20 pounds. My goal is to weigh 190 pounds on my 56th birthday in 2013. This yoga is very hard to do, but most things that are hard to do – give great rewards. This has also helped me when communicating to a large group of sales people. Because of the discipline of the practice it helps me reinforce the discipline of my career and company standards. Perseverance and discipline is the greatest benefit.
