Is not surprising that core power yoga has become very popular with many people as it focuses on the core region of the body, the abdominal muscles in particular that not only assist in posture but also look great when you’re walking down the beach.

It is actually a fairly intense form of yoga for many people as it is performed more vigorously than other forms of yoga and in a heated environment.

Core Yoga Can Be Challenging:

Many people can find this form of yoga stressful in itself and realistically you should have a reasonable level of fitness before you get involved in core power yoga.

People who perform core power yoga on a regular basis find the combination of strength and flexibility that it offers helps to raise their fitness level beyond that which they could achieve using other forms of exercise.

All the while helping to reduce the levels of stress.

Become More Focused:

It also helps many people to become more focused in everything they do in their life as this is one of the aspects of core power yoga that the training brings with it.

There is a version of yoga called Ashtanga that gives the basis for core power yoga.

Power yoga has created a dynamic, challenging program that combines strength, sweat and spirituality.

It Recognizes Power In Diverse Levels:

First is the physical power which develops the bodies’ strength and improve health.

Second is the mental power or the will to contemplate on the practice; and last the spiritual power which is the power behind the physical and mental power.

Strengthen The Core:

By strengthening the core area of the body in the lower back and the abdominal muscles it is very beneficial for many forms of sports as this is the central strength of the body that is required for almost every type of activity.

Building strength in this area gives a lot of support to the back and reduces a lot of back injuries that are common to many people.

Eliminate Toxins:

By performing the yoga in a heated environment it is thought that this helps to eliminate toxins from the body and it certainly is a fast way to build up a sweat.

While the poses are generally only held for a very short time a combination of one after the other helps to increase physical endurance.

Core Power Yoga The Western Version:

Core power yoga is the Western version of the Indian Ashtanga Yoga.

The term was given by Beryl Bender Birch, an Ashtanga Yoga teacher.
