Heated Power Vinyasa Yoga

YOUR YOGA PRACTICE IS A POWERFUL AND STABLE PLATFORM FROM WHICH TO BUILD YOUR WHOLE LIFE

What is POWER YOGA?
Power yoga is a fitness-based, American interpretation of ashtanga vinyasa yoga. Power yoga invokes a more rigorous pace to ignite internal heat, increase strength, stamina, focus, flexibility, as well as cultivating meditative breathing, and reducing stress. We create the storm to find our calm. We are inspired by the Baptiste Methodology and our classes are based on the Journey Into Power sequence. 

What does VINYASA mean?
Vinyasa is a method of yoga in which movements form a flowing sequence in coordination with the breath. We include sun salutations between postures in order to create a continuation of movements between static poses. Static poses may be held up to five breaths and include dynamic muscular engagement that promotes full-body expression in the posture.

What is HEATED?
All of our classes are gently headed using infra-red heat (90-95 degrees) in order to assist in the safe movement of your body. Infrared heat has benefits that include reduced inflammation, pain relief, reduction of muscle tension, and relaxation. 

Our classes are intentional, focused, and themed. 

Intentional: Every month we invoke a yogic intention to develop our understanding of yoga beyond the physical postures. 

Focused: Every week we focus on specific poses and yogic principles that will hone the WHOLE SELF. Repetition is the mother of mastery.

Themed: We invoke an energetic theme each month that serves as an anchor for your practice on and off the mat. Each theme has an I AM mantra to focus and steady your mind.

We nurture and invite our students to explore their yoga practice on the mat and into their whole lives. Through the repetition of asana, meditation, self-inquiry, and pranayama practices, you will discover for yourself what it means to create a sustained and transformed way of living. We believe YOU are creative, resourceful, and whole; we support a pathway for you to step into the biggest, most powerful version of yourself.

 
 Bring a mat, towel, and a non-glass water bottle to class. Blocks are provided and sanitized after each class. Rental mats and towels are available for $5 each.

 

Journey Into Power
Baron Baptiste’s Journey Into Power helps you access your vitality, power, and freedom. This vinyasa class will cover postural foundations and alignment all in connection to breath. Both newcomers and seasoned yogis welcomed. Be prepared to sweat and work.

We suggest attending at least six classes before deciding if it’s right for you.
