Yoga for Everyone

What Is Power Yoga

What Is Power Yoga

Practicing Yoga unites the mind, body, and soul in a way that eases tension, reduces inflammation, and promotes health and well being. The word yoga means to unite, to yolk or bind. The physical practice of yoga is for everyone. At Oxygen we are a power studio, with compassion for all looking to find yoga in their lives. All of our teachers are fully aware that no one has the same physical history or body stories, but, yoga IS for everyone! We should all look different in our yoga practices, we all have different stories. However when we are all moving and breathing together, that moment of yoga shows up, we are one. Our teachers will gently guide you through the powerful classes' with personalized modifications. You are ready now!

What Is Power Yoga

Power Yoga is available for all to try, there are modifications for each person to learn to expand their practice one way or another. 

 Power Yoga has its roots in Ashtanga: Power Yoga takes its cues from the practice made famous from Master Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. Two of the most recognized names associated with Power Yoga are Beryl Bender Birch and Bryan Kest, who personally studied under Pattabhi Jois. I have had the honor of completing my YTT studying under Beryl Bender Birch's yoga teacher training, The Hard & The Soft Yoga Institute. Made possible by Sheila Magalhaes owner at Heartsong Yoga Center in East Longmeadow MA.

 Power Yoga moves quickly it can be rigorous. There are very few moments of being in a pose, in Ashtanga we generally hold each pose for  5 breaths,  in other forms of Power Yoga it can be faster. Ashtanga incorporates a serious number of vinyasa's which are going to get your whole body into gear. It makes you feel energized, strong, and will increase your range of motion. 

 Baptiste Yoga was founded in the 1940's by Walt Baptiste. This practice is designed to empower you with focus, strength training and insight. The two Power Yoga disciplines we offer at Oxygen Power Yoga complement each other well. We encourage you to utilize both for a well rounded practice. 

 Over time meditation in movement is developed. We at Oxygen offer a couple of options that are not power. Be sure to visit the practice schedule.

Calm Your Mind

What Is Power Yoga

Calm Your Mind

Yoga not only helps improve your body, but also helps with mindfulness and meditation. We practice yoga so that we can be here uninterrupted and fully present. It is important to take a break from daily life in order to focus on yourself, to show up and get clarity. Bringing attention to your breath and the connection of that breath to your body along with specific focal points during practice is key to finding your yoga. A consistent yoga practice will strengthen your attention span and help ease your mind of stressful events. Over time with practice the mind will react differently to stress, allowing for a life with more glimpses of ease and contentment.

Popular Questions

How hot are the heated classes?

At Oxygen Power Yoga we heat the room during the heated practices to a beautiful 85 degrees. We use a combination of forced hot air in conjunction with infrared radiant heating. Infrared radiant heat provides a less dry atmosphere in the room. It leaves the room feeling less stuffy.  This technology feels clean and invigorating like the warmth of the sun. It is also a very green energy heat. 

What are the positives to a heated practice?

The heat allows you to go a little more deeply into the postures. With the muscles being warm and more fluid you can approach the postures from a safe place. Working in the heat can help the body relax, think of how you feel when that moment of relaxation hits you when you enter a hot tub, or step out on a brisk morning, you can actually feel yourself let go or squeeze in. We immediately notice how our body's react. The mind body connection is awesome. Working in a heated room also makes the body work harder, you will develop flexibility and strength. The heat can help improve breathing and focuses the mind, which develops better mental concentration. 

 "Embrace the heat" do your best even in your sweatiest self. One of the most popular benefits is detoxification. Heavy sweating is said to help flush toxins from the skin. 

I am not flexible at all, can I do yoga?

The only flexibility yoga requires is to be open minded about trying something new. The physical body will show up and certainly benefit from a consistent practice. We don't not go to the gym because we are not strong right? We go to get strong, in yoga we have the opportunity to gain strength and find a greater range of motion. To move the body and connect with your breath and find fluidity in those movements is yoga, flexible or not. YOGA does not require physical flexibility. 

What do I need to show up?

First and foremost come very well hydrated, prepared to sweat. Depending on your yoga background some disciplines do not drink during practice as it puts out your inner fire. At Oxygen Power Yoga we practice in comfortable clothing that needs minimal adjustments while you practice, its less distracting to yourself in your not having to mess around with fixing your clothing. We suggest barefoot feet to be the safest on the mats. We also suggest no hats in order to let the heat out of your head. Bandanas and headbands are fantastic to keep sweat our of your face. 

 Oxygen Power Yoga does have props and mats there for you to borrow. We highly suggest having your own mat over time. Your mat makes all the difference in your practice in slipping around.

  *B MAT 

  *JADE

Special Thank you

There are several stages in the life of a dandelion. Dandelions grow so successfully because the puffballs disperse and spread seeds in the wind over long distances. Some dandelions don't need to wait for a breeze. There are people every where who pick them up and blow the seeds into the air. It is very common to close your eyes and make a wish. With Donna Collins closing Breathe whose logo was a dandelion blowing in the wind, I like to imagine  the seeds of this studio floating around, plant and bloom where they fall. May each seed bloom in waves of beautiful golden lights all over the yoga community. 

A very special thank you to Donna Collins.

   You are loved.
