Power Vinyasa Yoga connects breath with movement using a vigorous, fitness-based approach to vinyasa-style yoga. It emphasizes strength and flexibility, and practitioners 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 is rewarded with many physical benefits to the bones, muscles, and joints. Flexibility and muscle tone increase and concentration improves. 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.
