Power Yoga

Around the 1990s Power Yoga was developed from the Indian Ashtanga Yoga like a Western version. Beryl Bender Birch and Bryan Kest started to use independently from each other the name Power Yoga. They wanted to make this challenging yoga style more accessible to Western students. Bryan Kest uses different sequences, some standing position are hold longer and the emphasis is on building strength and stamina. Beryl Bender Birch wrote a book about Ashtanga Yoga calling it Power Yoga. This explains why classes of this yoga style can vary a lot from one yoga teacher to another. Nevertheless this flowing yoga style made many people familiar with yoga. Seeing it first like a work out they recognized it later as a holistic system which can connect them with their inner power. The intensive physical training conveys concentration, power, consciousness and flexibility. Bryan Kest and Beryl Bender Birch do both several yoga retreats per year all over the world.
