What is Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga?

At DDY, we specialize in Power Vinyasa Yoga as inspired by Baron Baptiste.    A global force, Baron Baptiste has been influential on the international and American yoga scene for over two decades.  His message and the methodology of Baptiste Yoga have produced powerful results with hundreds of thousands of people worldwide, and his work continues to be a source of enormous influence across the planet.

Baptiste Yoga was founded in the 1940′s by Walt Baptiste and through his son Baron, it has evolved into a practice that holds true to the spirit of its creation while remaining accessible to anyone today.  The physical aspects of Baptiste Yoga style are inspired by the hatha yoga teachings of Krishnamacharya and his students Iyengar and Desikachar, whom Baron Baptiste studied with personally from a young age.

Our classes are heated to encourage opening and detoxification of the body and the mind. Our POWER classes are heated to around 90 degrees and allow you to safely achieve serious sweat and deep release on many levels and our other classes are kept around 82 degrees.
