Can beginners attend classes?
We welcome beginners – our classes are open to all levels. We encourage beginners to pace themselves and trust their
own bodies. In time you’ll build strength, focus, stamina and flexibility. The benefits of yoga do not occur overnight but the
results are lasting.
Will class be challenging for me?
Yes. But you determine the intensity with which you work in each pose and throughout the process. Your first few classes may be difficult. No matter what your age or experience level, this yoga will take you to your edge-and pull more out of you than you ever thought possible.
How often should I practice?
Successful yoga practice requires discipline and wisdom. Consistency is the key to success. For life-changing results practice 4-6 days per week. 2-3 days per week done consistently will create transformation over time. Power yoga is more than a workout – it’s a conscious journey of discovery.
What if I’m not that flexible?
We encourage you to develop a flexible mind. You don’t need to be physically flexible. All you need is to focus on letting go, sweating, breathing, moving and respecting your limitations. A yoga pose will expose imbalances, as well as physical and emotional blocks. Soon the tension, and sometimes fear, will release and your range of motion will naturally increase.
How does this yoga differ from other forms of yoga?
This yoga is based on intuition rather than tradition. If you think you need to go to a health club to be wonderfully fit and beautiful, think again. If you think that you need to escape to a cave in the Himalayas to find the enlightenment that yoga promises, think again. You will discover strength and energy you never knew existed.
Does power yoga incorporate meditation?
Of course. A more vigorous class is not necessarily less meditative than a slower, more mellow class. The ingredients for creating a meditative state are the integrity of the teacher, and the attention the student brings to the practice.
