Breaking Bad Habits With Peter Guinosso
The Berkeley yogi vows to transform you in just forty days.
By Anneli Rufus
When Peter Guinosso first started doing yoga in his thirties, it was to soothe, stretch, and strengthen the joints and muscles he had overtaxed throughout a life packed with sports. You name it, Guinosso had played it or done it: football, soccer, baseball, wrestling, swimming, mountain-biking, snowboarding, and long-distance running. He had heard that yoga could ease out the kinks. Asked how he enjoyed it three months after his first lesson, Guinosso said, “It’s a great workout.”But what he was doing for his body was also quietly and unexpectedly transforming his mind.
