Power YogaFit is different from conventional yoga in that the poses link in a fluid heat developing technique. We relax only if totally needed. We warm up the body entirely with huge body moves prior to engaging in any complex or flexibility focused pose. We include fitness movements like sit-ups as well as push-ups, lunges and also holds. We make a cardiovascular exercise by repeating a number of poses rapidly once we are hot. We move from pose to pose with a full body workout target, all areas of the body are worked equally.
