As a college basketball coach for the last thirty-two years, I have spent a great deal of time trying to learn more and more about strength development, conditioning, and flexibility. We have had an outstanding basketball program with players who have been in great shape. However, this year we made the decision to include yoga in our pre-season workouts and are extremely pleased that we did. The yoga classes were a tremendous help to my team. Neel Kulkarni did an outstanding job of explaining, teaching, and demonstrating what yoga is all about. We saw excellent improvement with all our players in the areas of flexibility, relaxation, breathing, focus, and strength during the ten-week ten session program. Neel’s simple explanations and demonstrations were very impressive. Flexibility is so important and our players learned so much about how to relax, visualize, and stay focused. I was so impressed I also shared this information with my wife and the two of us have now begun yoga exercises at home daily. I would recommend Neel to anyone interested in learning about yoga. His enthusiasm and obvious yoga talent makes it very enjoyable to work with him.
