Power Yoga

If you are interested in Yoga for spiritual benefits or for health and fitness, Power Yoga can provide both. Synchronous breathing with strong, flowing movement combines with a hot, high-energy workout. Different from other style, Power Yoga is based on a choreographed sequence of poses (called asanas). These asanas flow into one another, creating a moving dance. Joints unwind in the process, muscles are release, and energy is moved. Throughout the practice, a person builds strength, flexibility, and mental focus with the final result being a release of tension.
