The first in a series of intensive Power Yoga flow classes, Hour of Power #1 is a 60-minute, Level 2+ option designed to get you (and keep you) sweating. This class by Anaswara feature some stretching, but its focus is a strong flow practice with emphasis on cardio and strength training.
A more fitness-based yoga option, Power Yoga is very vigorous and the brainchild of Western yoga teachers who wished to make Ashtanga yoga more popular among their students. No uniform series of poses exist in Power Yoga, and practice often varies by studio. Yoga poses are instead followed by strength training, such as push-ups occurring after the Surya Namaskar posture, or Sun Salutation.
Enjoy this “power hour” and the benefits regular Power Yoga brings, such as increased metabolic rate and calorie-burning ability, fat reduction, back and stomach strengthening, stress reduction, and so much more. Have fun, and sweat it out!
