Benefits

Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga has many benefits for the health of our bodies, minds and souls and affects our fitness, wellness. mental and emotional health,  and aids in disease prevention and relief.   Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga classes offer a true immersion into your physical and mental self. The unique blend of yoga traditions and philosophies emphasize the flow of breath while moving with strength and grace from pose to pose, all in a heated environment. Modern yogi and founder, Baron Baptiste, stresses the principle of adaptation. Both aspiring and advanced yogis, young and old, can modify each posture and create their own individual experience. The result is a yoga practice that rinses and detoxifies the mind and body, while building strength and flexibility on and off the mat. (From BaronBaptiste.com)
