Vinyasa/Power Yoga connects breath with movement using a vigorous, fitness-based approach to vinyasa-style yoga. It emphasizes strength and flexibility, and practitioners can gain many physical, mental and spiritual benefits with this practice. This weekend retreat will consist of a fast-paced sequence that is athletically based. We will rapidly flow from one asana to another while focusing on our breath.
This retreat is open to all levels of yoga experience, and Susan Hauser will give different variations for different levels. The Power Yoga practitioner can experience many physical benefits to the bones, muscles and joints. Flexibility and muscle tone can increase and concentration can improve. Power Yoga is intense and utilizes the entire body, working muscles in arms, shoulders, back, legs, feet and abdomen so that the body grows stronger and healthier and the joints, tendons and muscles all become more flexible.
Please bring a yoga mat.
