What is Power Yoga?
Power yoga is a vigorous style of flowing yoga, mixing long holds with faster movement. The power yoga we teach at our studio is based on Baron Baptiste’s Power Vinyasa Yoga. All our classes are warm – the studio is heated from 85 to 90 degrees (F). The heat is ideal for shaping and stretching muscles. You will notice how your body and movements become much more fluid in a heated studio.
We teach a variety of power yoga classes in our studio. Though all of the classes are challenging, we offer different levels of difficulty for every class. Each pose taught in the studio can be modified to fit your body shape and fitness level. If the pose calls for touching your toes and you can’t, then you go to your shins or your knees – the important part is that you are challenging your edge, wherever that edge is. As you progress through your yoga practice, the postures will evolve and adapt with you.
Power yoga is great as a stand alone workout or as a supplement to your existing regiment. If you are a runner, cyclist, golfer or other athlete, power yoga is perfect for cross training. Power yoga works both your large and small muscles. It creates balance and power throughout your body.
