I Love Power Yoga

This amazing yoga studio opened this summer a few blocks from my house. Although I'm not consistent, I've been doing yoga for over 10 years. Last year I was going to a small studio that practiced Vinyasa Flow...a series of poses and breathing that gets your heart rate up and then ends with calming meditation. I was going a few times a month and then the studio closed. Although there are other studios in town, none have what I like or at the times I can go.

This studio practices Power Vinyasa Flow, a yoga developed by Baron Baptiste that is both vigorous and calming. It's for 90minutes done in a warm room, 85 degrees, so you really sweat.

I really REALLY like it and it's such a great workout. You burn like 450 calories an hour and it's lots of planks, downward dogs and using your own body weight so you really work your upper body and muscles plus the heart rates is working. I been going since July about 2 times a week.

I am attending a workshop there tomorrow from 9 am - 4 pm to train as a teacher's assistant. I am so excited.
