What is Power Vinyasa Yoga?
The definition of Vinyasa is “to place in a special way.” This vigorous and challenging style of yoga is unique because it focuses on connecting breath to movement, flowing from one pose to the next. M•Power’s signature style of Vinyasa not only focuses on flow but also connects poses in a new and creative way. Our advanced classes are creatively yet safely sequenced by our teachers, and are taught in a heated room at 95-97 degrees with 30% humidity.
Why are classes heated at M·Power?
Heat helps create a more challenging cardiovascular workout on the mat, but has many other benefits as well. Heat helps increase flexibility by warming the muscles from the outside inward. It aids in increasing circulation and can help to boost the immune system. Adding heat to a yoga class causes you to be acutely aware and mindful of your breath and your body. If you are overexerting or not breathing enough you will quickly notice and have to adjust.
What classes do not have heat?
M·Power 1, M·Power Barre Fitness, and Mend Restorative Yoga are non-heated options on our class schedule.
When should I not practice in the heat?
If you are pregnant and are not a regular practitioner of heated yoga you should not practice in the heat. If you have not properly hydrated beforehand you should avoid heated classes and the possibility of over-heating. Students under the age of 17 are not permitted to practice in the heat at M·Power Yoga.
Why do classes have music playing?
One of the foundations of M·Power Yoga is “Motivating Through Creativity.” Music can add a creative and inspiring element to yoga classes. We ask our teachers to pick music that fits the theme and style of class that they are teaching to create an all encompassing experience for you when you practice.
What does Yoga mean?
Yoga is a Sanskrit word that translates as “union”, or “to yoke.” At M·Power Yoga our goal is to unite your mind, body, and spirit on a deeper level while also uniting you to a supportive community where you can make meaningful connections. We want to inspire you to live your most m•powered and connected life, on and off the mat.
Why are the doors locked at times throughout the day?
At M·Power Yoga we value your time. It is important to hold a space where you can safely and comfortably disconnect from the outside world and enjoy the full hour of “you time.” We lock the doors while classes are in session for the safety and respect of our students who are practicing. Please allow enough time to check in and arrive on your mat before the class is scheduled to begin.
My child would like to practice yoga with me. Is it ok if I bring them along?
