Power yoga is a vigorous, fitness style yoga that was invented in America. It was modeled after Ashtanga yoga but doesn’t follow a set series of classes. Which means power yoga can vary from class to class. This is great for people who want a fast paced, sweaty workout.
Power Yoga is definitely an intense workout that will make you sweat. A traditional Ashtanga practice follows the same series of poses and makes you hold each for five breaths before moving through a Vinyasa. Power Yoga classes move with an even faster rhythm.
