and spirituality. It recognizes power in different levels; first is the physical power
which develops the body’s strength and improve health; second is the mental power
or the will to concentrate on the practice; and last the spiritual power which is the
power behind the physical and mental power.
Core power yoga is the Western version of the Indian Ashtanga Yoga. The term was
was given by Beryl Bender Birch, an Ashtanga Yoga teacher. It has been brought to
the west by followers of Sri K. Pattabhi, a renowned Sanskrit scholar who inspired
Western Yogis with his Ashtanga Yoga Style and philosophies.
There are three programs in power yoga. ‘Core Power’ is designed to strengthen
abdominals and back and includes both abs-focused Vinyasa power yoga poses and
variations of muscle-toning moves. ‘Unlocking Athletic Power’ will develop flexible
strength with an emphasis on abs, back, hips and pelvis. ‘Soul of Strength’ on the
other hand is a fast-moving power yoga program with a distinct ‘mid-body’
emphasis and some very challenging moves.
Yoga sessions are done in a heated room and made up of different cardiovascular
exercises intended to develop strength and flexibility, increase stamina, improves
the ability to focus, release tensions and remove toxins through sweating.
Core power yoga practice also requires the execution of yoga poses. Poses are done
in a fast pace, some poses are even held longer than the required five breaths. This
practice can increase physical endurance and ability to focus on any task for a long
time without breaking the concentration.
