Due to its tempo and brisk nature, power yoga is essentially like an aerobic workout, where yoga poses are done faster and in continuation. Power yoga when practised regularly and under supervision helps your body achieve stability, balance, posture and tone. It is a fast paced workout and can be practised by anyone who enjoys exercising.
Power yoga is a general term used to describe a vigorous, fitness based approach to vinyasa- style yoga. Many consider it to be”gym yoga,”
This style of practice was originally closely modelled to make it more appealing to western students. Power yoga takes the athleticism of combining many yoga- asanas, but gives each teacher the flexibility to teach any poses in any order, making every class different.
American yoga teachers are most often credited with the invention of power yoga.
With its emphasis on strength and flexibility, power yoga brought yoga into gyms of all continents as people began to see yoga as a way to workout. It helps in calorie burning, blood circulation, alleviates stress and tension also helps in toxins elimination along with several benefits.
It would be wonderful if we inculcate power yoga in our exercise regime.
