Power Yoga is a Vinyasa style yoga class, set to contemporary and sometimes unusual music choices. The intention of the class is to play the edge with a smile, support one another in the adventure on the mat, and leave feeling exhilarated and peaceful, at the same time. The practice is lighthearted yet challenging, since it involves more sensory stimulation and powerful postures. The practice encourages skillful alignment and balanced action of the body, empowering students to gain the necessary tools to create harmonious conditions within their physical bodies. Get ready to stay focused, breathe deeply, and explore a variety of fun poses with a bit of sweat and – quite possibly – laughter! Students have an opportunity to request songs for the next class’ playlist, creating greater interaction between the practice and the environment. Some vinyasa (flow) experience suggested.
