Jump To Power Yoga Workout

POWER YOGA is my kind of yoga.

I’ll be honest, I haven’t always been a fan of yoga. If you’ve been following me for any amount of time, you know I love quick and effective, 20-30 minute HIIT and strength training workout.

It can be hard for me to slow down and do yoga (hello fellow Enneagram Type 3s).

But as a trainer I know one of the best ways to avoid fitness plateaus is to mix up your fitness routine.

Incorporating yoga is a great way for strength training and HIIT-lover’s to avoid overtraining.

On the flip side, power yoga is a great way for seasoned yogis to increase strength, power and endurance.

This yoga flow truly is ‘the best of both worlds’.

Which is why I suggest adding this 15-minute power vinyasa yoga workout to your weekly exercise routine. 

Power Yoga for Strength and mobility

What is Power Yoga?

The term ‘power yoga’ is used to describe a high-energy, fitness-based yoga class. You’ll burn more calories in power yoga than in other forms of yoga due to the relatively fast pace.

Power yoga classes are actually an offshoot of Ashtanga Yoga, with benefits like:

  • Building internal heat
  • Increased stamina, strength and flexibility
  • Stress reduction

Power yoga fuses bodyweight strength-training exercises and cardio intervals with traditional yoga poses to boost the intensity, while maintaining an emphasis on muscle length and flexibility.

What Are the Benefits of Power Yoga?

  • Increased Flexibility
  • High Calorie-Burn
  • Increased Core Strength
  • Build Lean Muscle Mass
  • Boost Metabolism

Cardio yoga increases lean muscle mass which leads to a boost in metabolism. This in turn is a great resource for weight loss.

According to Well + Good, power yoga gives yogis the opportunity to build the muscles necessary to maintain a safe yoga practice over time — and provides additional calorie-torching HIIT and strength bursts to intensify the workout.
