yoga comes in many different forms. at acacia studios, we teach and promote the practice of power vinyasa yoga.
Power vinyasa yoga is a powerful, energetic form of yoga where students fluidly move from one pose to the next while connecting breath to movements. this type of yoga incorporates strength, flexibility, balance, cardio and physical and mental stamina in one session. at acacia studios, we focus on the core in our classes, to build abdominal strength, literally the core of our practice.
Vinyasa meaning, “flow” or “to move without resistance,” incorporates interval and cross-training exercises to challenge both the aerobic and anaerobic systems of the body. as your body adapts, it is important to vary the types, intensity and duration of the exercises. power vinyasa yoga incorporates regular sequences that become familiar to students, but incorporates variations to modify, intensify, or challenge the body by altering the pace or duration of poses, and the frequency that they are repeated.
