USMMA Announces New Power Vinyasa Yoga Program

Posted on April 1st, 2010 by admin in yoga pilates | No Comments »

Power Vinyasa Yoga is an intense yoga session that detoxifies while sculpting and toning the body. This is a challenging form of yoga that combines strength with meditation. All Power Vinyasa Yoga classes are heated which enhances stretching and helps to eliminate toxins in the body through perspiration.

 

Power Vinyasa Yoga classes are open to all levels, whether novice or advanced. The fee for each class is $14 and $12 for students. USMMA Yoga also offers a package of 10 class cards for $120.

 

Anyone interested in Power Vinyasa Yoga may attend their first class for FREE. Power Vinyasa Yoga classes are 90 minutes long and held Sunday through Thursday and on Saturdays.

 

The benefits of yoga include improved balance, strength and flexibility as well as better muscle tone. It’s also one of the best ways to reduce stress and anxiety.

 

“Power Vinyasa Yoga is a truly powerful and rejuvenating workout that transforms the mind, body and spirit. Participants can burn up to 750 calories in a single session, whereas it would take 90 minutes on a stair climber just to burn 675 calories plus you get a full body stretch and reenergized mind. Who could ask for more,” noted Stephanie Luke, Program Director of USMMA Yoga. Luke has been in the fitness industry for over 11 years and holds multiple certifications in Yoga, Pilates and personal training.

 

All Power Vinyasa classes are led by experienced instructors including Luke, Casey Beksha, Deborah Spielman and Lesley Reilly.

Baptiste Power Yoga Learning Methods

Posted on March 26th, 2010 by admin in yoga for beginners | No Comments »

Power yoga is taught by two American yoga instructors by the name of Baptiste-Baron Baptiste and Sherrie Baptiste Freeman, who are brother and sister and are highly successful in teaching power yoga and each has an individual style of teaching yoga. Both grew up in San Francisco with their household fully dedicated to yoga, healthy living and physical fitness.

But Baptiste power yoga actually refers to Baron Baptist’s method, which is also known by the name power vinyasa yoga. Baptiste power yoga is a strenuous and vigorous form of yoga that is taught in studio with the heat turned up, mainly to emphasize the personal power and empowerment of a person. In this way, Baptiste power yoga helps to transform a person on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels. Thus the practitioners are able to take full control of their lives and bring about healthy positive changes in their lives.

Vinyasa is the most important feature of Baptiste power yoga. In this type of vinyasa yoga, the poses tend to flow from one to another in a sequence. This is achieved by controlled breathing and this breathing is used in some specific manner to move from one pose to another. This is in contrast to other forms of yoga where the poses are held for some seconds or minutes before moving on to work on another pose. Thus the vinyasa sequence takes care of the particular physical or psychological goal like relaxation and energizing the body and mind.

Baptiste power yoga can be learnt and practiced from Baptiste certified teachers who have attended power vinyasa trainings. Baptiste power differs from ashtanga yoga in one major aspect. In Baptiste power yoga, the beginners are also accommodated with others and are not isolated, giving them an opportunity to develop their intuition and self power right from day one of the class.

The very essence of yoga is taught in Baptiste power yoga and it aids in the discovery of freedom, truth and individuality of a person. This drives the point that lead to a meaningful and fulfilling life, the tools and wisdom are within oneself and not anywhere else. Though this untraditional method faced some criticism and opposition initially, Baptiste power yoga has gained popularity since it purifies the body in and out as well as the mind and is a complete integration of mind, body and soul.

Also, Baptiste power yoga is suitable for people of all ages alike, young or old.  Those who practice Baptiste power yoga become empowered to overcome the hurdles that stand in the way of rediscovering the inner strengths, emotions, the relationships and the ability of a person. Thus, Baptiste power yoga is a level better than any other process that taps the hidden potential of a person, to lead an extraordinary life.

Why Certain Yoga Poses Require Lots of Will Power

Posted on February 4th, 2010 by admin in beginners yoga poses | No Comments »

The key of all yoga practices consists in the performance of yoga poses or asanas that open the door to plenty of metal and spiritual benefits. Many people feel overwhelmed by the multitude of yoga poses, particularly when getting a look at the many exercises explained online; yet, do not feel discouraged since yoga is actually a life long pursuit and challenges in the difficulty of poses are likely to appear on a regular basis. The thing is to stick to those asanas that are specific to your level of learning: start with simple yoga poses for beginners in order to gain confidence and get used to what this ancient practice is like.

Certain yoga poses require lots of will power and perseverance as well as daily practice, since they address not only the body but the mind too. Even if you took up yoga as a means of improving your health, you’ll soon realize that the connection it establishes between the immediate reality and the deep inner self cannot be neglected or ignored. From this perspective, yoga poses will teach you how to increase resistance and develop a level of mental awareness that was unknown to you before performing the exercises.

Every session consists of several types of yoga poses depending on the yoga style you practice; yet there are common body postures that are meant to give you the mental and physical state for the performance of the more complex exercises. These are the warm-up poses that prepare the eyes, the neck, the limbs and the torso for the challenges of the real asanas. To put it in other words, warm-up yoga poses are a good training for all the body muscles, they help one stay fit and in a great health condition. Sometimes, many people choose to practice them separately from a yoga session, as a mere way of training the body.

How can yoga poses help to the improvement of the health condition? If you know what it is like to feel all your back, neck and shoulders stiffen with tension or bad postures, then you’ll definitely feel the difference after a relaxing yoga session. The main benefits of the training are immediately noticeable in the condition of the spine, the position of the head and the overall health state. The safest way to pass from one level of difficulty to another is to have a teacher or a master to guide you along the way; failure to do so may seriously affect the correctness of the asanas and may expose you to injuries.
