Power Yoga

Power Yoga is a vigorous, athletic style of Vinyasa yoga designed to foster the highest levels of vitality, freedom, and physical energy.  The intense, flowing practice draws on the traditions of Ashtanga but does not follow a set series of postures. Power Yoga focuses on developing strength, flexibility and fitness while challenging one’s physical and psychological limitations, thereby encouraging personal empowerment.

What to expect

In a Power Yoga class, students engage in challenging and dynamic flowing postures, often practicing in a hot room.  Power Yoga classes offer a safe and encouraging environment for students to explore their personal boundaries and learn to work with, not against, themselves.

Founder

Power Yoga is a generic term for modern yoga styles which are derived from the tradition of Ashtanga Yoga, but do not adhere strictly to its specific series of movements or related practices such as chanting and meditation. Teachers such as  Beryl Bender Birch, Bryan Kest, and Baron Baptiste are credited with popularizing Power Yoga in the Western world and its fitness scene. Power Yoga brought yoga into gyms, bringing yoga a new level of noteriety and popularity.
