Power Yoga is an intensive and up-beat style of yoga that promotes strength and cardiovascular health. Unlike other yoga styles, Power yoga is fast-paced and focused on increasing heart-rate to burn calories, improve circulation, and build muscle. The effects of Power yoga last after the session by increasing the basal metabolic rate resulting in continuous fat burning even while you sleep. Despite the intensity of the class, Power yoga still relies on the traditional yoga poses which promote joint, bone, and tendon health. By practicing power yoga alongside a moderately healthy diet it is possible to lose significant amounts of weight, improve heart health, and promote overall health and wellbeing. Power yoga has also been shown to improve happiness by inducing the brain to produce less cortisol and an increased amount of feel-good hormones.
