More about Yoga (in german)
Power Yoga is a generic term that may refer to any type of vigorous yoga exercise derived from Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga.
Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, also known as Ashtanga Yoga, is a style of yoga codified and popularized by K. Pattabhi Jois, and which is often promoted as a modern-day form of classical Indian yoga. Pattabhi Jois began his yoga studies in 1927 at the age of 12, and by 1948 had established an institute for teaching the specific yoga practice known as Ashtanga / Vinyasa Yoga – Power Yoga.
Just now in our everyday life, where we remain more and more motionless, it is crucial to strengthen the body and keep agile simultaneously, to keep the body and mind flexible for the demands of our daily life.
Yoga can do either: build up muscles and relax them at the same time. The partly challenging positions work out body and soul. Thus we learn a state of calmness and serenity even under difficult circumstances and stress situations.
During our Power Yoga lessons we work without weights or other tools and only with the own body weight. That way, we learn to respect our own boundaries and an overload of the body happens rarely. Mostly, all kinds of sports are build on the principle of competition – Yoga is the opposite! The focus is on the person itself, with all its abilities and needs.
The main principle of Yoga is:
Do what you can do!
Not more and not less!
No previous knowledge is necessary. We all start at the same level and will get to know and explore our boundaries.
