Power YogaFit

Beth Shaw

I haven't done many power yoga tapes, only Yoga Zone's and Buns Of Steel, so I can't compare this power yoga to what is popular now. To me, it seemed like a harder yoga practice at a swift pace. A few of the poses I found challenging for me. Some of the more advanced poses were backwards triangle, upward facing bow pose (she called it something else), plow, and the others were just hard for me with short arms.

The video starts out with what she calls a sunflower salutation where you have your legs apart and come up with open arms. Then you go down to cat pose. I felt it gave my back a good warm up. I love the music in this section and the 2nd song beginning the work. These 2 songs are the same in her YogaFit YogaButt workout. The rest of the music is different.

The rest of the workout consists of difficult poses inbetween sun salutations. The sun salutations were very fast. Towards the end, she starts to do poses that get you closer to the floor. These feel good & get you really stretched out. She does a dead bug pose, a sitting spinal twist, an upward facing inner thigh stretch, fish pose, and a few others. Afterwards, I could feel that my quads, hamstrings and upper body had felt worked. I liked the tape & will buy others from her again. grade A

Instructor comments: I liked her soothing voice and it didn't seem fake at all. She had encouraging comments at the perfect time during the poses. I like that she shows she sweats during her workouts and takes a break to wipe off, drink water & check in.
