Power Yoga is a fitness-based vigorous vinyasa practice that burns calories and can help keep you fit. This style of yoga with its Ashtanga Yoga roots offers such benefits including building internal heat, increased stamina, strength, and flexibility, as well as stress reduction. Like all physical activities, it also relieves tension and releases toxins through sweat. Because it is rigorous, it burns more calories than most traditional forms of yoga and therefore can help with weight loss. Power yoga classes will vary widely from teacher to teacher, but they usually include far more intense flowing yoga poses, while students synchronize their breath with their movement. Arm balances and inversions may be included in this class.
Not suitable for beginners.
