“Power yoga is a modified version of yoga based on the traditional branch of Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga. It exacerbates the muscular and cardiovascular emphasis of the poses in combining aerobic and pilates movements and techniques to yoga while letting aside the rigid sequence of Ashtanga and therefore allows a lot of creativity and variation from a session to another. Like all Vinyasa types of yoga, the goal is to be able to breathe consciously during the practice and coordinate the breath with movements and changes in poses, although the accelerated speed of power yoga takes the challenge to a next level.”
This session will contain different variations and explanations of movements from beginner-intermediate-advanced so that everyone feels safe and comfortable in the sequences.
Please reach out to us if you have any injuries or restrictions so we can let the trainer know so they can provide proper modifications for exercises.
Disclaimer: This is a physically active event. Please be aware of your limitations and go at the pace that feels right for you. Have water easily handy and make sure to stretch before and after the event to help prevent injuries.
Meet the Yoga Instructor: Milorie
Milorie discovered yoga in 2014, at the opening of a new studio in her city. Long time athlete, she did sports like gymnastics, synchronized swimming and speed skating, where she was asked to give her 100%, up to the point where lots of her friends had sports injuries and she thought she was probably going to be next. She was surprised to discover how relaxing and comforting yoga was. It helped her reduce her physical pain as well as her mental stress with postural alignment, muscular reinforcement, focus, meditation, flexibility increase and breathing coordination. It created space in her head and filled some her my heart. That is why she decided to become a yoga instructor; she wants to bring this inner peace to others, amaze them while discovering what the human body can do and help them prevent risks of injuries.
