Power Yoga is very active as it stems from Ashtanga Yoga. We won’t divide anyone into levels. On the contrary Power Yoga invites students to practice as intensively as they prefer since we offer various modifications. Ashtanga Yoga usually is a rigorous practice started by Sun Salutations followed by a set series of asanas. In Power Yoga we play with asanas creating a wide variety of sets of postures depending on the preferences and needs of the students.
You may expect active warm ups with Sun Salutations followed by a set of asanas that may be quite soft like Chair Pose, Warrior I, II or twists. I usually like to include Plank variations to keep the practice “warm”, Back Bands or Hips Openings postures. We always finish with relaxation and close the practice with meditation or pranayama.
What is Kundalini yoga?
Kundalini yoga is like no other and as a beginner you might feel very surprised by mantras used even during performing some postures. Kundalini Yoga has a wide range of already set kriyas (here: sets of asanas) that serve for different purposes. It can be a series to exercise the whole spinal column or to harmonize the work of glandular system or “just” to release toxins. Each exercise last for a couple of minutes and usually is accompanied by deep breathing or breath of fire. But you shouldn’t worry about the timing: the teacher always takes care of that.
Kundalini Yoga classes usually include meditations with beautiful music when the group uses a certain posture and many times we chant with the mantra. Mantras are easy to follow and you will definitely be carried away by the energy of the group, beautiful sound and inner focus.
