Power Yoga - Shalini Bhargava

THE NEWEST & THE LATEST- TOTAL STRENGTH AND FLEXIBILITY WORKOUT

Power Yourself With Power Yoga

The word
�YOGA� means �union�. Yoga is a form of exercise based on the belief that the body & breath are intimately connected with the mind. By controlling the breath & the body in steady poses or �asanas�, yoga creates harmony. Yoga practice consists of five key elements: proper breathing, proper exercise, proper relaxation, proper diet, positive thinking & meditation.

The exercise & asanas are designed to ease tensed muscles, to tone up the internal organs, & to improve the flexibility of the body�s joints & ligaments.

How often have
you felt your entire body taut with tension, your limbs and muscles caught in a vice-like grip? You desperately try to release that tension somehow but nothing seems to work. Try power yoga. It�s a unique form of exercise to enhance your personal power through attaining the ultimate physical and mental strength.

The old fitness mentality is over! We are way past tearing ourselves to shreds simply to be more aesthetically pleasing. Power yoga is about working hard sensitively. It�s about feeling good, not just looking good. The tone & shape you attain from this workout is a by-product. The focus here is balance, strength, flexibility & healing.

POWER YOGA -

A unique combination of dynamic breathing & strong flowing movement, which creates a high-heat, high-energy workout. A choreographed sequence of postures that flow into one another, building strength, unwinding tight joints & loosening muscles. A complete mind & body workout that develops concentration & reduces stress.

Power yoga comprises of yogic exercises done in a series, without stopping. What makes it distinctive is the vinyasa, or connecting movement between the postures and the "series" or the sequential linking of the postures. The non-stop movements in power yoga increase your physical endurance and also your ability to focus on any task for a long duration without breaking your concentration. It is the only form of yoga where you will feel the heat radiating from your body and will be sweating continuously.

It is a rigorous, cardio-vascular practice that consists of supporting your own weight in a combination of postures, holding these positions while breathing dynamically and flowing into new postures building strength and focus, making tight joints more flexible and releasing tension.

A workout that increases stamina, tones one�s body, develops focusing abilities and really makes one sweat It's one of the ideal methods for training, because of its intense strength and flexibility aspects. As a result, many sports are turning to power yoga for its unparalleled conditioning, injury prevention and rehabilitation.

Benefits
  • Increases your concentration. You can focus better and for longer duration.
  • Releases the tension from your body.
  • Increases flexibility & tones your body
  • Aligns the body, protecting and rehabilitating it from injury.
  • Complete, effective, thorough and well-rounded form of exercise
  • Corrects all structural and muscular imbalances caused due to overworking any particular part of your body.
  • Controls the functions of the autonomic nervous system, like heart rate, muscle contractions, brain wave patterns, etc through conscious effort and concentration.
  • Increases lung volume and heart efficiency.

You can do all the physical exercise you want,but if you don't deal with your mental state, the physical exercises aren't going to be very helpful. The point being, if being healthy is really your objective, working on your mental state might be more important than the physical. A yoga practice provides for such work.

Using the poses and your experiences within the poses to bring your entire body to an alive vibrant state by activating every nook and corner of who you are. You know the old saying, "If you don't use it, you lose it." So, we use everything, creating an environment for self-regeneration. The body is not self-regenerative;you have to prod and poke and entice it back to aliveness. In this way,you really get to know yourself, feeling and experiencing all these places, some of them long forgotten or even never known. Our bodies are intricate webs of inner workings, dependent on the vitality of every strand that transmits energy to every other strand.

Thus, this accessible, challenging and flowing form of yoga will lead you to a state of transformation -- it will sculpt, tone and hone the muscles of your body and your mind.

I joined JG`s gym for ante-natal exercise and probably this was one of the best decision during pregnancy. Anupa, my trainer, exactly knows the regime a pregnant woman needs to follow. Her exercises kept me fresh through the day and my fitness improved post joining the class. She is very attentive and motivated me on days I felt tardy. Her flexibility with timing allowed me to go to gym when I was in comfortable doing exercise - this is a serious plus during pregnancy. Thanks a lot Anupa!

Dr. Priti Modi :

10 years and still going strong! My journey has been of a person who prior to 2006 did anything besides exercise to lose weight, to a person who wants to exercise everyday to kickstart a healthier day, for a healthier life. My sister in law, Reshma pushed me to join (thanks to a free 1-month trial coupon) and the JGs team members ensured that it becomes a part of my life. All the trainers are superb at JGs but my major experience has been with Anupa, Shalini, Sangeeta and Vijendra. Shalini has ensured that her dedication to fitness has rubbed off on all her team members. Each one of them is as dedicated and as strict as her in ensuring that we are regular and give our best while exercising. I always share with my family and friends that I just need to reach the gym, after that the trainers ensure I give my best. JGs has also been hugely instrumental in transforming my son, Nihar, from a chubby kid to a 20 year old with 6 pack abs. Thanks Shalini and team JGs, super job, well done, keep it up.
