Power Yoga

I haven't been running much lately but I have gotten a lot more into my power yoga!

Before I was only going to the gentle classes. These were slower with less intense poses, and unheated. 

More recently I've been going to the actual power classes. They're heated anywhere from 90-100 degrees and wow, do I sweat!! It's a pretty intense workout and I actually still can't do everything. There are some things I have to modify or skip, but I can feel myself and my balance getting stronger each time. I get so excited every time I can do something new, and I'm definitely learning a lot about my body and capabilities. 

I also leave yoga feeling so relaxed and much more positive than when I walked in. I know it's corny but I really do feel at peace afterwards! And I get a good workout too. In an hour class, my HRM said I burned just around 500 calories. So I get to use it for myself and for my body! 

I also get to take super cute pictures like these. 

Do you practice yoga at all?


  1. I used to LOVE yoga....I really need to get back into it!

    1. Do it! You can probably even do beach yoga with your new move =P

  2. I do beginner's yoga and really enjoy it! Power yoga sounds nice though since you burn so many calories!

    Btw, I think I may have told you this before but your HP tattoo is awesome!

    1. It's wonderful! Plus sweating that much makes me at least feel like the bad stuff is getting out of my body.

      And thank you!!!
