When you attend one of our Power Yoga classes, you can expect to work up a sweat while you build strength and re-energise the body through breath and mindful movements.
In essence, Power Yoga is a term that describes a more vigorous and fitness-based style of Vinyasa Yoga, that is more body-focussed while vinyasa is more breath-focussed.
Our Power Yoga classes incorporates the athleticism of Ashtanga Yoga and places emphasis on strenght and flexibility.
Power Yoga is often described as “gym yoga” as it was popularised in traditional gyms as people began to turn to yoga as a way to work out.
This style of yoga generally has fewer poses which are held for longer periods than in vinyasa yoga classes where poses are linked together as a continious movement.
As with any other form of yoga, this style has various mental and physical benefits.
“True yoga is not about the shape of your body, but the shape of your life. Yoga is not to be performed; yoga is to be lived. Yoga doesn’t care about what you have been; yoga cares about the person you are becoming. Yoga is designed for a vast and profound purpose, and for it to be truly called yoga, its essence must be embodied.” – Aadil Palkhivala
