Faculty Bio

Steve Ross

Steve Ross has been teaching yoga for over twenty years, exploring the physical aspects of the practice as well as the philosophical and spiritual roots of yoga.

Steve spent four years as a monk in the Vedic tradition, and since that time has ceaselessly sought out and reveled in the presence of some of the most notable masters of our time—in India and elsewhere.

He has been called “Yogi to the Stars” by InStyle magazine and has appeared in numerous publications, including Vanity Fair and the New York Times. He has been a guest on the Dr. Oz Show and hosted Inhale, a yoga program on the Oxygen Network.

Steve combines upbeat, inspirational music with a relaxed, easy spirituality that makes his classes at Maha Yoga some of the most popular in Los Angeles. His events are ecstatic and his sold out retreats are well known to produce a blissful state of being.

Before embarking on his yoga career, Steve recorded and toured with bands such as Fleetwood Mac, the Beach Boys, and Men at Work. He also performs with Krishna Das.

Steve is the author of Happy Yoga: 7 Reasons Why There’s Nothing To Worry About,  and has recorded and produced two chanting CDs: Grace is the Name of the Game and Give Love A Chants.
