Invented by a former U.S. Navy Seal, the TRX (short for total-body resistance exercise) turns every exercise into a challenge for your core by using two simple resources: gravity and your body weight. Depending on the exercise, you’ll use your feet or hands to hold onto the straps. In general, a part of your body will be suspended above the floor.

Dharma Yoga

Dharma YogaI spent a lot of time searching for my teacher. During my first yoga teacher training I fell in love with yoga philosophy and longed to meet someone who really lived it.
