Power Yoga: movement and fervor with awareness and kindness.
Power Yoga is a dynamic practice style that incorporates many advanced Ashtanga asanas . The difference is in the transitions that link one position to another . While in Ashtanga the rhythm and sequence is always the same, in Power Yoga everything changes without stopping.
History of Power Yoga
This dynamic and fiery style was born in the nineties by Beryl, an American who, after long years of study in India, realized that the Western world needed a very busy practice to connect with its mystical essence. In this way, he created a style based on Ashtanga Yoga but with free series to take the practitioner to a state of meditation through fluid and intense movements .
Power Yoga Philosophy
Power Yoga is a very free, volatile and changing practice. The idea is that each class is different, each teacher has the opportunity to print their personal brand, each practitioner performs an option according to their needs and the rhythm does not stop.
In Power Yoga classes, breaks are rare. They are fluid, very creative, fast and intense sequences that anyone can practice and adjust. It is true that if you are a person who has never practiced Yoga before, it is a very big challenge. In these cases, you can face your frustration and gradually improve your skills, or start with courses for beginners . Both options are valid and both will provide you with knowledge and personal growth.
At Believe Athletics we believe that each person is unique: some start at the beginning and others at the end. And nothing is wrong.
