How to Lose 20 lbs with
Power Yoga







Losing Weight with Power Yoga

Losing 20 pounds with Power Yoga is an easily attainable goal. A woman who weighs 140 pounds will burn about 500 calories during 45 minutes of Power Yoga; your calorie burn tends to be more if you weigh more, although other factors do come into play. If you do half an hour of Power Yoga once a week, it’s possible to lose 20 pounds in about 2½ months. Power Yoga is very intense, which is why it’s good to start out with just two sessions a week. As your fitness level improves and your muscles adjust to the hard work of Power Yoga, it’s safe to add on extra weekly session.

What’s Involved in Power Yoga
Power Yoga is a type of Vinyasa Yoga. Vinyasa is a style that involves moving from position to position, rather than taking breaks between yoga poses. Power Yoga falls on the more extreme or active end of Vinyasa Yoga, since it involves fairly rapid movements and quick switches between poses.

Although the yoga style of breathing is still used in Power Yoga, the breaths are not the focus of the class as they are in calmer forms of yoga. Yoga breathing is simply a way to get through the poses as efficiently as possible. There is also very little chanting, humming or mantras; this is because the focus of yoga is not on mental calmness and relaxation. The focus is on athletic, vigorous movements that give physical results.

While going through a Power Yoga Class, you’ll notice that you’re getting a heart-pumping cardio workout in addition to the strength and flexibility components. Moving faster increases calorie burn and gives you a better workout than traditional yoga. However, it is also much more demanding than a typical yoga class. Be prepared to work hard and take frequent breaks in the beginning.

Power Yoga is a fun type of exercise that can really help you reach your fitness goals and get in the best shape of your life. Not only is it a great way to slim down, but it also helps people get flexible and strong.

Power Yoga is a great way to simultaneously give your muscles a workout and relieve your stress. Although Power Yoga classes tend to differ from teacher to teacher, the basic premise remains the same. Power Yoga generally focuses on building flexibility and strength while retaining awareness of the mind-body-spirit connection.

The Goal of Power Yoga
When many people think about yoga, an image of calmness, breathing, meditation and relaxation comes to mind. Power Yoga is, in essence, a mixture of the Eastern and Western approaches of fitness and wellness. In a Power Yoga Class, you will give your muscles a strenuous workout, stretch them and tune into the needs of your body all at the same time. This is different from an aggressive gym or aerobics routine where you push yourself as hard as you can and are not tuned into your thoughts, your breathing or your internal state.

Power Yoga Classes generally vary in format depending on your individual teacher or yoga studio. The intention behind Power Yoga is to strengthen muscles and improve your flexibility. Some Power Yoga Classes are held in a heated room to help you stretch deeply. Most classes generally start off with a warm-up that prepares your body for the strenuous poses and movements. This helps to ward off any injuries or to ease you into the practice if you are recovering from injury.

Power Yoga v/s Gentler Yoga
You will generally not find the extensive chanting and meditative element in Power Yoga that you find in gentler forms of yoga. However, many teachers will guide you to tune in to cultivate self-awareness, to breathe deeply and to pay attention to your thoughts. In a Power Yoga class, you are focused on your own progress. Your goal is not to be stronger or better than anyone else. You tune into your own body and challenge yourself to stay in the present, listen to the needs of your body and push your own limits.

Benefits of Power Yoga
You can expect to gain many benefits from a regular practice of power yoga. Physically, you benefit from developing flexibility, strength and endurance. You will see an improvement in your posture. As with working out in general, you will feel less tension in your body and a greater release of any stress or anxiety after your Power Yoga workout.
Yoga, in general, is also known for cleansing the organs and releasing toxins through sweating. While cleansing your body, Power Yoga helps to clear your mind. A regular Power Yoga practice will improve your focus and concentration. You will find a strengthening in self-discipline as you clear out any mind clutter and focus on the task at hand in each balancing movement, pose and breath.

Power Yoga is highly beneficial for both the body
and the mind. It gives you a vigorous workout
while delivering a meditative element for your mind
and spirit.
