What is Power Yoga?
What we call Power Yoga is simply a dynamic vinyasa pratice. The term "Power Yoga" is sometimes misunderstood. In our world of image-dictature and demand for quick fixes. Some people may draw the rapid conclusion that the style only focuses the body. Beyond the physicality of the practice, Power Yoga is also an invitation to discover and embrace the many other aspects of Yoga. and is in my view, compatible with more traditional aspirations. Like traditional styles, a class of Power Yoga class definitely emphasizes the importance of living with a conscious breathing, encourages mindfulness and the respect of the tenets of yoga.
Practicing a dynamic style of yogaor any type of physical activity should be considered with common sense and wisdom. If you have a condition that limits your ability to be physically active, please get the advice from a doctor (one who knows yoga).
Be Safe, Be Gentle, Have Fun
Practicing Yoga is not about forcing the body into postures but rather about exploring and accepting our limits and work from there. The point where we meet resistance (our edge), on the mat or in Life in general is the place where we learn and initiate growth.
One of the pillar principles of Yoga is non-violence; therefor, in our practice, we should not try to muscle our way through. Being attentive to any sensation in the body is the key to safe progression. Although there can be sensations of unease and tension, Yoga should never hurt. .
