Power yoga is a term that came to be in the 1990s. It is a western concept that is a variation of the Ashtanga yoga. The practice is forceful and accelerates your heart rate.
Power yoga involves synchronized fast-paced movements with controlled breathing. It is an intense workout uniting the mind and the body.
It increases your stamina, tolerance, strength, and stability. Poses in power yoga are done one by one without any gap at a speed that challenges your strength. It is essentially a dynamic breath-based movement that has a certain flow in practice.
In power yoga, you move in and out of poses quickly lifting and holding your entire body weight while you are at it. Power yoga keeps you fit physically and mentally. Also, it keeps you aware of your spiritual side.
