Ed is director of sports gaining and yoga for The Institute For Extraordinary Living at Kripalu Center based in the Berkshires of western Massachusetts. His participation as an athlete in a variety of sports led him to yoga. Through the years he's fused yogic techniques and sports to create hybrid flexibility and work- out training methods.

".When you move through obstacle courses and the things that are set up at the boot camp, you're going to do it using yogic breathing techniques," Wendy said. Workout warm-ups and cool- downs will also integrate yoga and introduce relaxation and med- itation techniques. "Our philosophy is that you get more from honey than you do from vinegar. We're loving and nurturing to folks when we bring them into these programs. There isn't hollering, shaminffor putting anybody down. However you come in is where you're going to be afftrmed.
