WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY

Power of Your Om Yoga has been a key ingredient in my overall fitness, keeping injuries at bay and allowing me to pursue & achieve recent endurance athletic goals. There is no doubt that yoga, and in particular your brand of yoga, has allowed me to not only reach the starting line, but compete at a much higher level. Most importantly, PoYO has improved my general range of motion, flexibility and core strength to a degree that translates to keeping age at bay and improving quality of life.

Power of your Om is more than a yoga studio, it's a community of awesome, outgoing people. The classes are challenging, but the energy of the teachers and other yogis keep you going strong. It truly is the best part of my day.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Each power yoga class is suitable for all levels and all classes are taught in a heated room (90-95 degrees). This powerful, energetic, playful, flowing class has a strong emphasis on breath and allows beginners, intermediate and advanced students to be challenged in the same class. The room is heated to help cleanse the body and warm the muscles. Each class will torch calories, tone, strengthen, rinse your body, clear your mind and leave you with a sense of accomplishment and empowerment. The dynamic mix of sweat and spirit that is cultivated in a power yoga class will challenge you to step up to your edge and unlock your hidden potential for achieving authentic personal power and living an extraordinary life.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is Baptiste Yoga?

A potent physical yoga practice, meditation practice and active self inquiry are used as tools of transformation and possibility. … The Baptiste Yoga™ practice supports you to raise your vitality and physical power, and will empower you to create accelerated results in your overall body strength and confidence.

Can beginners attend classes?

We welcome beginners – our classes are open to all levels. We encourage beginners to come to any class that fits your schedule, pace yourself and trust your own bodies. In time you’ll build strength, focus, stamina and flexibility. The benefits of yoga do not occur overnight but the results are lasting.

Will class be challenging for me?

Yes. But you determine the intensity with which you work in each pose and throughout the process. Your first classes may be difficult.  No matter your age or experience level,this yoga will take you to your edge – and pull more out of you than you ever thought possible.

What if I’ve never done yoga?

We encourage you to develop a flexible mind.  You don’t need to be physically flexible or physically strong.  All you need is to focus on letting go, breathing, moving and respecting your limitations. A yoga pose will expose imbalances, as well as physical and emotional blocks.  Soon the tension, and sometimes fear will release and your range of motion will naturally increase.

Does Power Yoga incorporate meditation?

We are having you meditate the whole time you are in class…without you realizing it. A more vigorous class is not necessarily less meditative than a slower, mellow class. The ingredients for creating a meditative state are the integrity of the teacher, and the focused attention the student brings to the practice on any one thing at a time; such as your breath.

My gym has yoga classes. Why don’t I take those?

It is wonderful that people are getting exposed to yoga in places like gyms or health clubs.  And while there are benefits to taking yoga classes anywhere, there is nothing like taking it in a studio dedicated to yoga, especially one specific style.  Gyms usually teach yoga in a multi-use room and in this environment, it is difficult to come into your body, out of your head, and relax.

What if I can't touch my toes?

If you are asking this question, you need to come join us.  We will welcome you and make sure you feel at hOMe. The poses will tell your body where you can and cannot go.  Eventually, your mind will learn to listen to your body and not the other way around.  The more you practice, the more tension will be released and your range of motion will increase.

How often should I practice?

Successful yoga practice requires discipline and wisdom. Consistency is the key to success. For life-changing results practice 4-6 days per week. 2-3 days per week done consistently will create transformation over time. Power yoga is more than a workout – it’s a conscious journey of discovery.

Can kids attend classes?

Children 7 and up are welcome to a class with a parent.  All classes are based on the Baptiste Power Yoga tradition that combines adaptation, integration, and fun – great for kids.

How does this yoga differ from other forms of yoga?

This yoga is based on intuition rather than tradition.  If you think you need to go to a health club to be wonderfully fit, think again.  If you think you need to escape to a cave in the Himalayas to find enlightenment that yoga promises, think again.  You will discover strength and energy you never knew existed.

How hot is it?

The room is heated to 95 degrees using infrared heating.  The added heat allows your you to move into and out of poses with more ease while allowing your body to get deeper into poses for maximum benefit.  The heat causes us to sweat and detoxify the body.  It’s important to welcome the heat, stay hydrated and honor your body throughout every practice.  Click here for more details on heat.

Is it safe to practice while pregnant?

Yes.  Make sure to let your doctor know that the room is heated to 95 degrees and not 105.  That is where a lot of the miscommunication occurs.  The owner practiced throughout her entire pregnancy and has a healthy baby.  Yoga isn’t just about moving your body – it allows you to connect with yourself, give yourself the space and time you need to be a better human to everyone that you are around.  The hormones during pregnancy are no joke and practicing Baptiste Yoga gives you access to living a more vibrant life for you and your growing baby.  The heat in the room can be challenging for anyone and we don’t recommend starting once pregnant if you haven’t practiced before because it’s good to have a benchmark of how you did feel before pregnancy.  We are here to empower you.  Send us and email to: adrienne@powerofyourom.com and we will answer all your questions.

Does PoYO have showers?

No.  We run a really simple operation at PoYO to keep costs as low as possible for our clients…and we are keeping water consumption low in the drought.
