A recent study by the American Council of Exercise asked whether hot yoga was a more challenging workout than normal yoga. The answer was a resounding no. On day one, study participants were led through a 60-minute yoga class. The next day, the same instructor led the same people through exactly the same class except that the room was 22 degrees hotter than the day before (71 vs 93 degrees). more »

Karl Erb died peacefully in his sleep yesterday. Karl was a long-time part of the yoga community in San Francisco and taught Iyengar Yoga at Yoga Garden SF for several years and recently was a philosophy teacher in our yoga teacher training program.
Karl navigated life with illness for many years and embodied the greatest benefit of yoga practice and study: insight into living each moment fully and consciously, even at the end.
A memorial service will be held according to Karl’s wishes in September. Donations in memory of Karl can be made to Arsha Vidya Gurukulam Institute of Vedanta & Sanskrit
