"Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants."--Michael Pollan, author of IN DEFENSE OF FOOD.
In Oprah's case, she admits to stopping her exercise sessions, her meditations and going back to eating higher calorie foods.
This is the drum group hubby and I had the class with. Our instructor is the third lady of the front trio of drummers (counting from L to R).
If you're in South Florida, and you've wanted to try this, google em up. They're in Broward County.
You can see why this would, er, burn calories and build fitness. :)
If you drop by YOUTUBE and search under Taiko or Taiko Drumming, you can see some of the incredible troupes at work--they will blow your mind. I tried to find more of a "class" type one. I love how the people shout out in performance (like the video with the women in red and white outfits and shorts), cause they're clearly having fun.
If you have time, do not miss THIS PERFORMANCE which is just astonishing--a combo of taiko drumming with some hip-hop moves. Such energy!
