Whether new to yoga or not, our Fundamentals of Power Yoga workshop that takes place on the third Saturday of each month from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. offers something for everyone! Reece, our power yoga instructor who became interested in yoga after a sports injury, will walk you through the fundamentals of alignment and proper breathing techniques for best mind/body/spirit results. Reece will break the postures down, step by step, before guiding participants into a full Power Flow practice.

Talking about breaking things down, let’s take a moment to do just that with Plank pose, one of the postures explored in Fundamentals of Power Yoga! Popular New York-based fitness trainer, Pete Cerqua, sheds some wonderful insight on this strength-building posture. In his book, “The 90-Second Fitness Solution,” Cerqua writes: “Can you do a plank without your feet? No. So the muscles in your feet, shins, and calves must be doing something. If your glutes and abs aren’t contracting, you will sag to the floor. If your shoulder blades aren’t contracting to support your chest, shoulders, and triceps, you will plummet to the ground. The wrists hold up the arms and the neck holds up the head. The plank works your entire beautiful body!”

And that is, in fact, one of the many beautiful things about yoga, folks! The postures connect in a way to work the whole you…not just the various body parts, but mind and spirit, too! Reece will show that time and time again throughout this complimentary Power Yoga workshop.

By the way, did you know that studies show plank pose to be more effective than sit-ups? says: “…if you want better results from your core workout, focus on stability through different plank variations rather than performing endless sit ups and crunches.”

This Power Yoga workshop will take you deeper into your core as well as deeper into many other aspects of you, so why not take a chance to experience the deeper and more powerful you?
