Named "Guru of LA" by Vanity Fair, Steve Ross has practiced various styles of yoga for almost thirty years and has been an instructor for over twenty years, exploring the physical aspects as well as the philosophical and spiritual roots of yoga. Director of Maha Yoga, his classes are some of the most popular in Los Angeles, combining upbeat, inspirational music with a relaxed, easy spirituality.
"The true goal of yoga," says Ross, "is the permanent and unbroken awareness of the deepest joy and happiness possible (called ananda or bliss). This bliss is not the result of some progressive path, based on techniques and elaborate practices. It is our very nature right now - and always." His events and retreats are well known to produce a blissful state of being.
Ross also hosts Inhale, an upbeat early morning yoga program aired through the Oxygen Network.
