Power Yoga is the style of yoga that has become the foundation of the Power of Your Om brand. With years of competitive athletic experience, Ironman Triathlons and a deep desire for helping people move better, Adrienne Smith has a passion for for connecting movement and exercise into something bigger than just getting shredded.  Yoga at PoYO is a complete vibe that is multidimensional – challenging, inspiring, lighthearted and healing. It empowers us all with capabilities of going to the next level in a sweaty yoga practice and everywhere else in our lives.  

POWER ZONE - Power of Your Om's Signature Classes

Have you ever had those moments where you get swept up in movement, a sport, a task or action and time just flew by? We call it “the zone,” and we get into it by connecting our movements to our breathing. This is what you will notice in all of our classes at PoYO where we connect breath and flow in a dynamic class that will leave you feeling alive, challenged, inspired, connected to something bigger and ready to step up to the next level in your life.

All of the Power Classes are heated 90-95 degrees and include poses for beginners with advanced postures for more experienced yogis.  Most classes at PoYO are taught by instructors trained by Baron Baptiste and the Baptiste Institute.  

CHILL ZONE - Power of Your Om's Intensity Alternative

No matter where we are in life, we all have days (sometimes more often than we’d like) where we don’t feel amped to kick it up a notch, but we need to move and be moved  with others to continually be accountable to be up to something more than ourselves.  

Windows are open and the A/C is on for the Chill Classes.  Incredibly beneficial for all humans on the planet – especially the ones who keep saying “I should do yoga.”

POWER BASICS 
Looking for the perfect place to start? This is it. Keeping the poses simple and foundational with the attitude lighthearted and fun, here is where you will learn about getting in “the zone” by connecting your breath to movement while simultaneously getting sweaty, building strength and deepening your understanding of a life-long yoga practice.

WHAT WE’RE ALL ABOUT

The vision for Power of Your Om came from a play on the words “Power of your own.” We all have this insane power within ourselves to LIVE out the vision we’ve created in our minds for a successful life. Adrienne believes in taking full accountability for what shows up in our life, and no matter what, being the source of our own inspiration while also inspiring others. Our signature class, Power Zone, came from the athletic phrase of being in the zone, those moments where we get swept up in movement, sport, task or action and time simply flies by. The zone is achieved by connecting our movements to our breathing and letting the rest of the word fall away. For  seconds, minutes or hours we are connected to something bigger than ourselves.  

The PoYO Zone or The Power of Your Om Zone is a perfect name to capture what our team at PoYO is up to when we are on and off our mats – we all have our own ways of tapping into the zone and therefore each one of the teachers and staff will show up as ourselves. We bring passion, a genuine smile and a big heart to each conversation, interaction and class we lead. As a team, we are committed to growth and support, so we show up for each other and our community – everything from taking each other’s classes and attending team building sessions, to training together and volunteering at local events in support of our Santa Barbara community. Our team is like a family, we are always there for each other. When we fall out of living our best Life, we ask for help, support each other, coach each other and learn to move forward so that we can create more for ourselves  our clients and everyone around us.
