Now here’s a challenge. Yoga classes in the strength category are flowing, dynamic and energetic. They will strengthen and tone your whole body, and you’ll probably event sweat. Power Yoga is a modern, athletic based Yoga practice with elements derived from both Vinyasa and Ashtanga Yoga. Unlike Ashtanga, Power Yoga doesn’t follow a set sequence and therefore can vary greatly from class to class. Like Vinyasa, poses will be performed in a flowing sequence with a strong attention to linking breath to movement. Power Yoga is performed in a heated room.

We recommend some Yoga practice experience prior, however some modifications are given to make it accessible to most students. Because this is a heated practice we recommend expectant mothers to consult their doctor first
Why is it good for me?
Strength, flexibility, toning and balance are some of the physical benefits of Dynamic Yoga. This practice will also help to increase energy and vitality as well as building resiliance and the ability to stay focused and calm in stressful situations. Focusing on your breath will help to calm and centre your mind. A heated environment increases your pulse rate, metabolism and circulation. Sweating promotes detoxification and elimination through your skin. Heat produces a fluid-like stretch allowing for greater range of movement in joints, muscles, ligaments and other supporting structures of the body
What will I do?
You will perform a seamless flow of strong and energetic poses, connected by transitional movements. You will also perform some challenging static poses, standing, sitting, kneeling and lying. You will bring attention to your breathing and aim to focus your thoughts. You will also finish the class with mindful relaxation
What should I bring?
We have all the equipment you need, including Yoga mats. But feel free to bring your own if you prefer. Make sure you wear comfortable workout clothes and something warm to wear during relaxation. During hot classes we require that you bring a Yoga towel, which we sell at reception. During Power Yoga, make sure you grab a block as you set up your mat
