Power yoga is an intense, fast-moving style of yoga that will make you sweat. It is a fitness-based vinyasa practice. “Vinyasa” has several meanings, but in this context, it is a style of yoga with a dynamic flow from posture to posture. As an offshoot of Ashtanga yoga, power yoga has many of the same characteristics and benefits, including building internal heat, stress reduction, and increased stamina, strength, and flexibility.
Coined in the 1990s, the term “power yoga” is often associated with the "gym yoga" trend. The practice continues to show up in various forms in different yoga studios, and today there are countless variations of power yoga classes, including classes held in over-heated rooms.
