    Expand your clients’ energy and sense of personal power with power yoga, the athletic and dynamic style of yoga that delivers high intensity and quick results. This potent practice is a complete workout on its own, and it also offers tremendous benefits when combined with other workouts and sports. In addition to physical strength, stamina, and flexibility, the dynamic movements of power yoga challenge you to develop focus, balance, and purpose that extend to life beyond the yoga mat.

    Dozens of warm-up, power, peak, and cool-down poses are presented in full color, and adaptations to modify or intensify each pose allow you to customize your practice for each client. Sequences ranging from 5 to 60 minutes—including specific sequences for running, cycling, team sports, and high-intensity activities—offer options that match specific goals and lifestyle needs, and the 28-day plan can be adjusted into a customized plan based on the desired results.

    Upon completing the book, certified professionals can take the companion CE exam to earn continuing education credits.
