6 Answers | Asked by Gregor Kozelj on Mar 07, 2013

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Nov 08, 2013

I agree with Joanne, there are way too many variables involved to accurately track the number of those who teach 1 or more Yoga sessions/wk.

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Nov 08, 2013

Great answers. To avoid being redundant, I think the fact there is an alarming rate of adult obesity and a totally unacceptable rate of childhood obesity in the U.S. speaks for itself.

Group Fitness vs. Personal Training Certifications???

10 Answers | Asked by Jessica Bowman on Nov 07, 2013

23 Answers | Asked by Kelli Davis on Jun 14, 2011

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Nov 07, 2013
