Faster Impact - Quick Results
Benefits From Yoga with Weights: On its own, yoga is a great strength and flexibility workout; add weights and it becomes an express ticket to sleek, defined muscles and increased stamina.

Practicing yoga with weights instills an awareness of
how your body is meant to move.
