ATLANTA, GEORGIA, January 28, 2001: Power yoga is about learning to breathe, relax and acquire an awareness of your body. In the process you work up a sweat, push your muscles to their limit and stretch like silly putty. According to this recent article in the Atlanta Journal, the popularity of power yoga is on the rise in Atlanta. Three years ago, only four to eight people showed up for classes at Atlanta Yoga, which specializes in astanga yoga. Now, each session averages 15 to 20 students. Excercisers who once thought yoga as too sedate are filling classes for astanga, also called power yoga, a new variation on a centuries-old exercise. Power yoga combines traditional yoga poses into continuous movements that require not only great flexibility but considerable strength. Power yoga is very challenging. It brings on a sweat, so it's appealing to the workout crowd.
