Dropping pounds

At one time, Arthur Boorman weighed 340 pounds. Much of his weight loss, more than 180 pounds, can be attributed to practicing YRG - "Yoga for Regular Guys" - a workout program that combines traditional yoga poses with calisthenics and isometric exercises. Boorman, 48, now teaches YRG classes five times a week, in Fells Point, Arnold and Pasadena Baltimore Sun photo by Monica Lopossay
