Hour of Power 1: The first in a series of intensive Power Yoga flow classes, Hour of Power 1 is a 60-minute 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!
Hour of Power 2
The second of an intense Power Yoga flow series, Hour of Power 2 is 60-minute class guaranteed to get you sweating. Class style is a combination of Power and Vinyasa with focus on cardio, strength, and "super sweaty flow."
Follow Yoga Collective teacher Anaswara as you perform some light stretching before getting into a strong, steady flow. Power Yoga is the counterpart to the meditative stretching traditionally associated with the practice, and incorporates the Surya Namaskar poses, or Sun Salutation yoga postures, to greatly increase strength and flexibility. As with "regular" yoga, Power Yoga provides optimal stress relief, but also improves concentration, increases metabolic rate, improves core strength via constant working of the stomach and back, and harmonizes the heartbeat.
Grab a towel and sweat your way through this "power hour" with Anaswara! Enjoy the sense of accomplishment and feelings of serenity that follow this challenging, highly-worthwhile yoga class.
Hour of Power 3
The third in a series of intensive Power Flow yoga classes, Hour of Power 3 is a 60-minute class led by Anaswara. Class style combines Vinyasa with Power Yoga to create a sweat-tastic option focusing on cardio and strength training in addition to the aforementioned sweating.
Power Yoga incorporates Surya Namaskar, or Sun Salutation, yoga postures to greatly improve flexibility and strength via expansion and contraction of the ribcage and waist. A series of 12 poses, regular Surya Namaskar practice increases spine flexibility while trimming your waistline and contributing to overall power and strength. Since every Surya Namaskar pose is followed by strength training in Power Yoga, such as push-ups, a dynamic workout is created, and one that increases and harmonizes the heartbeat in addition to burning calories and reducing stress.
Bring your towel to this yoga class, and get ready to sweat out stress, toxins, and any other tension hanging around in your body! Have fun, and remember to breathe!
