Power Yoga Directory

Welcome to the Yoga Journal Power Yoga Directory page. In this section you will find yoga studios, retreat centers, and teachers who specialize or incorporate Power Yoga into their practice and philosophy.

Power yoga is a basic term used in the West to describe a fitness-based vigorous approach to vinyasa-style yoga. This type of yoga is a rigorous full-body workout that promotes mental stability and concentration. Most power yoga is closely modeled on the Ashtanga style of practice. The term "power yoga" came into common usage in the mid 1990s, when several yoga teachers were looking for a way to make Ashtanga yoga more accessible to western students. Unlike Ashtanga, power yoga does not follow a set series of poses. Power yoga classes can vary widely from teacher to teacher. However, power yoga will most likely appeal to people who are already quite fit, enjoy exercising, and want a minimal amount of chanting and meditation with their yoga.

In 2009--seven years after my cancer diagnosis and moments after yet another potentially embarrassing wardrobe malfunction duringa yoga class--I ditched my breast form at the studio, acknowledging that I had found my second home. I've used yoga to nurture myself as both a survivor and caregiver, discovering that a conscious practice is indeed for every body.

Teaching yoga for over 18 years, Lyn was the first to bring Power Yoga to the area. While her personal practice began with Ashtanga and she still stays grounded in the foundational elements of that practice, Bryan Kest and Baron Baptiste have both been a guiding force behind her teaching. She is grateful to both for encouraging her to trust and listen to her own internal voice of wisdom. Eventually leading her to what she calls Buddhi Power Yoga, a “user-friendly” yoga guided by intuition and breath.

Hello! My name is Rebecca Wizov. I hail from southern New Jersey, but I just graduated from Temple University with a music education degree and am proud to call Philly my official home! In addition to my music, I grew up as a dancer/cheerleader. Yoga was always something I dabbled in, but never took it seriously. I had tried multiple times throughout college to get into it, but it wasn't until summer before senior year- May 2016, that I was introduced to the practice that changed my life. Grace & Glory, a studio in Northfield NJ (right near my hometown) - was where my friend's mom was practicing yoga. My friend asked me to go with her to a practice, and after that first class I was hooked. I could not get enough of it. But then the best thing ever happened. Not only was there a studio in my hometown, they ALSO had a studio 10 minutes from my college apartment. That studio became my home- I began to do the work exchange program there, and in March 2017 I began my 200 hour teacher training program. I graduated in June 2017, and am currently teaching Power Yoga at Temple University's Campus Rec Center. I am excited to expand my teaching and hopefully begin at more studios throughout the Philadelphia area!
