Yoga Addicts is a group for all interested in Power Yoga. This group has been formed by Sumit Lal - a Power Yoga Teacher from Pune (India).
These days, the news about yoga is everywhere. Celebrities, medical professionals, even your friends and
neighbors are raving about the benefits of yoga. But you aren't sure. You have a busy, hectic life, and frankly,
you like it that way. You thrive on the move, and although you occasionally wish for a few moments of peace,
you think sitting in the lotus position for an hour sounds like a big bore.
Guess what? This isn't the yoga you thought you knew. This yoga moves, breathes, bends, arches, swings,
sways, flows, and dances. This yoga speaks to you in a language you understand. In a world that moves as fast
as this one does, where information is transmitted from continent to continent in a few seconds, where people
eat on the run, work on the run, and then go running, few people feel they have the time to spend in a class that
forces them to be still. We don't remember how to be still!
Power Yoga allows us to move, work our muscles, and really get somewhere. Power Yoga builds strength and
endurance fast, giving you the results you want quickly, but it also works another kind of magic on the hurried,
frayed, overworked bodies and minds of those who practice it.
Power Yoga is not only meditative but also physically challenging. Central to
the technique of power yoga is the sequencing of postures with interlinking transitional
movements and a synchronized breathing pattern. These create a flowing connection of
yoga postures that gives you a balanced workout and mental clarity.
Gradually, subtly, it teaches you how to slow
down when you need to slow down. It gives you control over the body you thought had taken the reins of your. It calms, clears, and brightens the mind so that you can work smart and live in a healthy way. It clarifies.

What Is Yoga?
Yoga is a system of techniques that reflects real and proven scientific concepts. Many
things scientists understand about the body have actually been known by
yoga practitioners for centuries. Yoga sees the body from a different perspective than
traditional medicine, but the basic principles are the same. What we
call nerve plexus, yoga calls chakras (although these terms don't coincide precisely — chakras include psychospiritual energy). What we call spinal
alignment, yoga accomplishes through various poses or exercises.
The human body is in a constant state of flux,
continually adjusting internally to the influence of a changing external environment.
Medicine calls this process homeostasis. Yoga's five sheaths of existence—in
essence, the body, the breath, the emotions, the intellect, and happiness—reflect the
same need for balance between internal and external forces. The terminology may be
different, but the concepts are universal.
